Do you search online when looking for products or services? With so many people now turning to online searches when looking for assistance, the time to ensure that your business has a presence on the internet is now.
There are still a surprising number of small businesses without a website to showcase their products/services. Whether this is because of concerns regarding expensive set-up costs or time consuming maintenance is a bit of a mystery but the truth is, if your business does not have a website, you are missing out!
Below, we have identified 3 of the main reasons why you small business MUST have a website.
No. 1 – Reaching Your Local Audience
There are a variety of facts and figures which highlight that an increasing number of customers are searching for locally based products and services on at least a monthly basis.
Without the presence of a well optimised website, you are missing out on a huge amount of potential business. Even worse, not only are you not in a position to capitalise on these searches, there is every chance that your competitors will be.
No. 2 – Long Term Marketing Solutions
Websites offer a form of marketing that just keeps on giving. As opposed to alternative forms of advertising such as flyers, newspaper ads, radio ads etc, which need a little too much luck to be effective, websites are designed to be accessible at a time when your customers actually need your services.
Providing 24/7 access to your products and services in a convenient fashion simply could not be more effective.
No. 3 – The Ideal Shop Window For Crucial Information
Even if you do not wish to sell any products online, your website still offers the ideal platform to showcase all of the important pieces of information about your business.
Your website can be tailored to provide your customers with quick and easy access to an array of information including contact details, images, directions, FAQ, terms and conditions along with much more.
