Why do I need a website?
There are many reasons for you to have a presence on the world wide web. Let's look at some of them.
Your website is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week even when you are not available.
In today's digital age it can be the best form of advertising followed closely by word of mouth. The big advantage is that you get to control the message and it can be changed easily.
More and more people are looking for local business online through search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo. In fact if you do not have a web site you are seriously limiting your customer base. Approximately 93% of all business purchase decisions start with an online search engine search. If you do not have a web presence how do you capitalize on this market that does not even know you exist?
In a study released earlier this year (2012) it was found that over 80% of consumers will research a product online before making a purchase. So the question is how much is it costing you in lost revenue because you do not have a website or an underutilized website.
If you believe that the phone book, signage or direct mail are all you need for advertising then think about this. When most people need to find information about local suppliers they do a web search before resorting to using any of the above. Why? Most people do not have as easy access to these kind of traditional tools anymore Because of the internet.
