Did you know that 80% of consumers in the world do research online before buying a service/product. If your company has managed to perform very well without a website, congratulations. If you are on the fence about whether or not building a website for your company is worth the time and money, here are a few signs that it’s time to take the plunge and get started.
1. Because you are doing business in 2017
Joke? Not at all! More than 2.4 billion people use the internet every day, and some 90% of those have purchased something, or contacted a company, online in the last 12 months. So by not having a website, you will be missing out on a big piece of the pie. Whether you sell products in a physical store or services, the first place most people go when they’re looking for what you sell is the internet. How many customers have you missed out on because your business was invisible when they went online to look for what you sell?
2. Because If you do not have a website, customers think you are dodgy (A Once-Off Company)
Have you ever had difficulty making that sale? Or convincing someone that you are the real deal. By having a well structured website you can foster instant credibility with anyone. You can provide the ultimate proof that you are, in fact, the realest of all deals. People fully expect that any company they do business with will have a web presence. Even if they already know about your company, a website’s the easiest way to look up your address before heading to the store, or double-check your hours so they don’t head out for no reason. If you’ve been asked by at least one customer where they can find you on the web, it’s time to start working on a satisfying answer to that question.
3. Because You Want To Run Online Marketing Campaigns (Google Adwords, Facebook Paid Ads, Email Marketing etc)
I am sure you might have read about the value of Google Adwords, social media marketing, content marketing, and SEO. Those are all tactics your competitors are probably already benefiting from, but that you can’t even try until you have a website to promote. If you’re currently putting all your ad spend toward billboards and radio ads, you’re not getting the biggest bang for your buck.
4. Because You Don’t Want To Be Out Of Business (Obsolete)
Bill Gates Once said:
If your business is not on the internet, then your business will be out of business
The longer you hold out, the more invisible you are to potential customers. Even past customers might wonder if you’ve gone out of business if they can’t find a website – people really do take for granted at this point that a website is a necessary part of business. If you don’t have one, it looks unprofessional and means people are less likely to take you seriously. Stop procrastinating. You already knew by the time you started reading this post that it’s past time to have a website for your business.
5. Because You want Company Emails e.g Email@mywebsite.co.za
The business world is all about image and professionalism. It looks unprofessional to be doing company business using public email accounts like gmail, yahoo etc.
6. 24 Hours A Day
Your website runs 24/7 without any supervision or need to lock it up. You can always be there for your customers.
