Why Your Business Needs a Website

241.      A Website is  Open to the World 24/7, 365 Days a Year

Your company store or office may only be open 8-5 – Monday thru Friday, but your website is their for potential clients 24/7.

2.   A Website is  Your Online Brochure 

Your website is your online brochure – a brochure that you can update at anytime in minutes.   This will save you money on printing and distribution costs as well.

3.   Improved Customer Service

By providing answers to questions on your website, sales and information requests can be processed automatically and immediately, whether someone is in the office or not. Online forms can be used to allow customers to request quotations or ask further information.  

4.  Present a Professional Image

For a small business, a well-designed web site is a great way of instilling confidence and looking bigger than you actually are. In this day in age, customers assume that you already have a website. By now, your primary competitors probably already have a presence on the Internet. If they do, keep up with them and find ways to make yours better.

5.  Sell Your Products

Why pay expensive rent, overhead, electric bills, and all the other costs that go along with owning a bricks-n-mortar business? Selling in cyberspace is much cheaper and a good way to supplement your offline business. Providing secure online ordering is very affordable for even the smallest businesses.

6.  Promote Your Services

Lawyers, doctors, financial consultants, entertainers, realtors and all service oriented businesses should let customers know that they have a choice. Millions of users are referring to the web and are using company’s websites to make major decisions when they need a specialized service.

7.  Provides Instant Gratification

People are busy and don’t like to wait for information. Give them what they want, when they want it. If your product is suitable, offer them free samples or trials to download. This includes pictures, brochures, software, videos, Power Point slides, music and more.
