We understand why you might be hesitant to develop a website for your company: "I'm not computer smart," "they're too costly," "I don't have the time," or the classic "I have enough business and I don't need one." The truth is that you don't need to be a computer whiz to create a good website for your business, and to make matters even more complicated for you, not having a website is losing you time and money.
Why should I have a website for my business?
1. Having a website will bring in new customers and increase your earnings.
We like this statistic so much that we're repeating it: Before making a purchase decision, 81% of people conduct online research on a company or service. You have no chance of capturing a share of this market if you do not have a website. Even if you are not present, your website can be accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. During and after office hours, your website serves as your "always-on" business advocate.
2. Simply having a website will give your company worldwide recognition
The 21st-century consumer is cautious in fact, 56% of people stated that they will not trust a business that does not have a website. A good website immediately increases your credibility as a legitimate business. First impressions are important, and websites allow you to make a powerful first impression with a well-designed introduction to your company.
3. Having a website will ultimately save you time.
Communicating with potential customers takes time, whether you're exchanging emails, taking phone calls, or sending out proposals. Your website can save you time by answering frequently asked customer questions and inquiries. What does this have to do with you? You can spend your time on more important things.
