Having an online website is an absolute necessity in the modern business world.
A website is the best tool you can possibly have for attracting new business to your organization. Most importantly, a website can save you tons of money!
Please find below a few reasons that we think can be very useful when it comes on getting a website for you business or organization:
“Just Google It” – This is the most common phrase among people around the world. Your business or organization should be at their fingertips.
“Customers Expect You To Have One” – Your business creditability is judged by customers based on your online presence today. If you do not have an online website, your business or organization is viewed as less trustworthy and to some customers you do not exist without it.
“A Website Improves Customer Confidence & Corporate Image” – With a professional website, you will improve you impression to the public and in turn your customers will develop a greater sense of confidence in your business or organization.
“Keep In Mind That A Website Never Sleeps” – Most of the people around the world surfs the web in the evening when most businesses or organizations are closed. A website will allow your business or organization to be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Having a website is the equivalent of having an employee working around the clock.
“Small Businesses Have Higher Revenue” – According to the Small Business Administration, small businesses that have websites are averaging $1.07 million more per year in sales than small businesses not online. That equates to 39% higher revenue.
“Websites Are Not Just Local – They Are Global” – Most small businesses are only able to market to their town and surrounding communities. With a professional website, you can take your goods and services across America and around the world, if you choose.
“Websites Allow For Equal Opportunities” – To some extent, all websites are equal if promoted well. Small businesses can compete for the same level of business opportunities against much larger companies. Customers like the choices that online businesses offer and this is a factor that will draw business to your company. You can be a big fish in any pond by doing business online.
“A Website Is The Best Advertising” – Internet information can greatly reduce printing and mailing costs. Information that you now distribute via handouts, brochures and newsletters is available online, avoiding print distribution costs. A website is more efficient than any other kind of advertising.
“24 Hour Customer Service Options” – If your business wants to give the most effective customer service, an online website is your only realistic option. By providing email, live chat, telephone service and regular mailing options, your customers know that they can reach someone. Your business or organization is open at all hours.
“Frequently Asked Questions” – Having a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page, your company will save money and man hours. It is convenient to list all terms or services, hours of operation, forms, applications and other information, plus these can all be updated quickly.
“Display Global Location Information” – Having a website link registered with major search engines, your company can now let people know exactly where you are located. Smartphones, mobile devices and computers can look you up with any modern mapping programs, so that customers can actually see your business or organization on a map and even look at the satellite pictures at the street level ( Google Maps). It makes finding your business easy.
