Q: My business is very small, just me and two employees, and our product really can’t be sold online. Do I really need a website?
A: That’s a good question. In fact, it’s one of the most important and most frequently asked questions of the digital business age.
Yes, if you have a business, you should have a website. Period. No question. Without a doubt.
Also, don’t be so quick to dismiss your product as one that can’t be sold online. Nowadays, there’s very little that can’t be sold over the internet. More than 20 million shoppers are now online, purchasing everything from books to computers to cars to real estate to jet airplanes to natural gas to you name it. If you can imagine it, someone will figure out how to sell it online.
it’s not enough that you just have a website. You must have a professional-looking site if you want to be taken seriously. Since many consumers now search for information online prior to making a purchase at a brick-and-mortar store, your site may be the first chance you have at making a good impression on a potential buyer. If your site looks like it was designed by a barrel of colorblind monkeys, your chance at making a good first impression will be lost.
To Name a Few Important Reasons:
It’s a competitive world and if you are a dietician or a Gym instructor A website gives your work an unspoken authentication. It shows effort, which eventually means that you are serious about what you are doing and won’t go away anywhere.
A website is always there, Once you have it up and running it will stay there. All you have to do is make sure that people get a good look at it. All your services, products, and contact details are in one place and accessible 24 hours a day. Websites Are Not Just Local, They Are Global. You reach a more audience with the website.
- Time Saver:
Providing information to your customers takes time, whether it’s on the phone, face-to-face, in a brochure, or in emails. With an online catalog, you can provide lots of information about your products and services. Once your website is up and running, it is available to your customers indefinitely, saving you time. And what is time? Time is money!
- Customer Service:
Maybe you sell environmentally friendly products and would like to share tips on how to recycle, or perhaps you’re an accountant and want to give your clients advice on how to simplify their bookkeeping practices. By including a FAQ page, adding articles, or uploading newsletters to answer all your customers’ questions you can keep them up-to-date. What better way to provide them with value-added service than by sharing information on your website.
It’s an internet world and the world is on the internet. About 80% of consumers use the internet to search for products and services they need before they make a purchase. Most customers today will assume your company has a website and may search for your business only to find you do not exist on the world wide web. Most of your competitors probably already have a website. Don’t let them snatch your customers away by not having your own company website.
