Small business owners often wonder how a website impacts their business. Some think it takes too much time or isn’t worth the investment. However, the digital age has changed the face of marketing. Today’s consumers prefer looking for information online where everything is easily accessible.
A business owner may ask, “Do I really need a website for my business?” As marketing experts, our answer to that is always ‘Yes’. Here are six reasons why:
1. It makes your business accessible 24/7
A good website highlights offers to attract customers. Even if the store is closed or no one is available to answer enquiries, a website allows customers to access information about products and services anytime.
2. It builds your credibility
Businesses that own professional-looking websites make a positive first impression to consumers. A well designed website adds to the business image and builds its online presence. It shows that the business is professional and credible. It assures the prospective customers that the business provides quality products and services.
3. It serves as an online catalogue
Whether it’s a manufacturer, supplier, artist, consultancy or home repair, a good website shows what the business has to offer. Owners can easily update information including prices, conditions and even add testimonials from happy clients.
4. It helps save cost
A business website is globally accessible. This saves businesses from spending too much on other marketing materials, such as brochures, catalogues and kits to promote offers.
5. It makes a great advertising tool
A business website opens promotional opportunities that could help attract more potential customers. With the help of the right tools, such as social media marketing, websites help companies generate more business.
6. It promotes customer engagement
Customers like it when service providers are reachable and keen to their concerns. A website – along with social media marketing- establishes consumer trust because it gives them the opportunity to interactively communicate with the business.
