Business Online

Top 5 Reasons to take your Business Online:

1. Cost Savings - keeps more money in your pocket

  • A highly visible company website provides a 24/7 doorway into your business and can be a highly cost-effective sales lead generator.
  • Email is an inexpensive way to communicate with your customers.
  • You can reduce time delay and expenses with postal mailings; no more outdated print materials.
  • Necessary information to advertise your business can be kept on-line to view and download any time.

2. Marketing - it’s a new way to promote your business

  • A website can tell much more about your business than a small yellow page ad, or an expensive local newspaper ad could.
  • Your on-line marketing campaign can reach a whole new audience – potential customers that never existed with your traditional advertising means.
  • A website can help your customers see the difference between you and your competition.

3. Sales - make more money

  • A website can reach more customers than your current advertising does for you.¬†Online retail sales grew from $11.5 billion in 1998 to $70 billion in 2004 and are expected to hit $370 billion in 2017 (Forrester Research).
  • More and more, individuals and business are looking to the Web for purchasing products and services. And they do it because it’s convenient.
  • Merchants are finding that it’s not expensive to get their “store” online – and that store can be up and taking orders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • If you have a product to sell, you can have a simple shopping cart application on your own website – selling to customers 24 hours a day.

4. Customer/Business Partner Services – service your customers and business partners even when your business isn’t “open”

  • You can have an email address at your own business name, allowing everyone to communicate with you on-line, any time.
  • You can provide the information others need, outside your normal business hours!

5. Competition – tap into a new customer base, before your competition does

  • As of 2012 more than 2.4 billion people worldwide have Internet access, according to the latest study from Nielsen-Netratings.
  • More and more people are looking to internet search engines to find the products and services they need.

The question really shouldn’t be… “Why do I need a web site?”, the question really should be….. “Why have I waited this long to get a web site?
