7 reasons why your business should have a website.

7-reasons-header

Gain Credibility
When a visitor arrives at your website, they aren’t going to know whether you are a one man show or have a hundred employees.  Having a professional website allows you to level the playing field against larger, more established companies you may be competing with.

Saves you Money
It is the most cost effective way to promote your business.  Generally, you pay a one-time fee for the construction of the site and then the hosting and domain name renews annually.

Always Open for Business
24 Hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year your website is accessible to customers and potential customers.  People can gather information about your company, the products and services you offer, your hours of operation and any other relevant information you wish to post.

Keep your customers informed
Are you carrying a new brand, expanding your showroom hours or showcasing photos from a recent job?  Your customers are interested.  Is your restaurant now offering catering services as well?  Tell the world about it.

Showcasing your work
Are you a custom builder who has job site photos of the many homes you’ve built?  Do your clients know you offer kitchen and bath remodels as well as decks?  Seeing is believing.  A gallery page is a highly effective way to let the public see the quality of your workmanship no matter what industry you work in.

Target a wider Market
Bring your products and services to a global market.  If you are a retailer, then you have the opportunity to offer those products all over the world through eCommerce.  eBay sells cars and other large items every day so odds are that your products could be sold online as well.

Better Customer Service
Business owners today can provide information about their business to the public through their website.  The public expects it and buyers demand it.  A website has become the norm in business operations. It should have the same level of importance as a telephone or a company brochure.  Can you imagine operating a business with no phone?  As technology increases our methods of communication, it also increases our expectations when dealing with business owners.
