15 Aug 10 Reasons Why You Should Get a Website
Are you thinking about getting a website for your business? Wondering if you really need one?
Let me break it down for you. Here are the top ten reasons to get a website:
#1 Instant Credibility
Have you ever had trouble making that sale? Or convincing someone that you are the real deal? By having a well-structured website, you can foster instant credibility with anyone.
#2 Online Brochure
Companies spend millions having brochures be made and then distributing them. By having a website you can bypass that entirely. Your potential customers can find out about your company and any of your products online. You can put however much information about your business as you like.
#3 More customers
The internet is used by 2.4 billion people every day, and approximately 90% of those have purchased something or contacted a company online in the last 12 months.
If you don’t have a website, you might be missing out on a big piece of that pie.
#4 Business value
Have you tried applying for a business loan recently? If you are, and the bank manager asks to see your website, it could be very helpful indeed to have a professional one.
#5 No Closing Time
Your website runs 24/7 without any supervision or need to lock it up. You can always be there for your customers. Especially if you have an online store, this will be quite handy in showcasing your products.
#6 Keeping in contact
By having a blog or even just a feed on your website, you can update customers on your newest offers, products, pictures, promotions, events, and more.
If you utilize an online ticketing system as well as a FAQ (frequently asked questions), you can greatly reduce the cost of customer support needed to run your company.
The internet has opened up a whole new world of marketing that didn’t exist before. Your website can attract new business by using various online advertising avenues.
By having a website you can have your own email email@example.com. It is more professional and easier to remember, rather than firstname.lastname@example.org (those email addresses have their own place and time).
#9 The World of Blogs
What do you love? How about chick flicks, hip-hop, photography, travelling, or doing makeup and hair? Then you have a business idea just waiting to attract revenue and traffic. Just pick something that you love and start blogging.
#10 Increased Reach
With a website, you are no longer limited to a customer base that is only in physical proximity to your business or company. Your place of business may be in Los Angeles, but your customers can be in Hong Kong.
