How is your website doing?
When was the last time you took some time out of your schedule to upgrade your website? That said if you have a professional website developed…
With technology ever evolving online, you need a company that is on top of things and can do it all when it comes to your online brand. If you don’t have a website or cannot remember when last you did some overhauling, then we suggest you contact us to help you.
Let’s have a look at what is a website exactly.
A website in its bare form is a single domain that consists of different web pages with your services or products. Even in today’s life is it shocking to see the how many businesses still lack an online presence or rely on only a Facebook page for their online marketing. Everyone should, but surprisingly not everyone knows the benefits a website…
If you have a business and don’t have a website, you are losing out on great opportunities for your business. A website itself can help your business grow, making it a level playground when competing with major corporations.
As a business owner, you need to know where your consumers are. But what if consumers know your business and what you can offer, but they can’t reach you? That is one of the risks you take by not having a website for your business.
So, what are some other benefits of having a business website?
1. Cost Effective
You know exactly how much your website is going to cost you and it’s ongoings – unlike when you take your car for a service and waits for the phone to ring with additional costs, will a good developer tell you upfront what it will cost to develop and host your website. If you do your development through HB Web, you eliminate monthly hosting fees by paying only an annual fee.
2. 24/7/365 Help Desk and it is accessible around the clock
Your website and social media accounts are working 24/7/365, name one staff member willing to do that? Can you remember the feeling you have when you go to the mall looking for something only to find the shop closed…? Now imagine you can buy whatever you needed without even getting in your car… Since your website is operational around the clock, from the convenience of the local coffee shop, their couch or their bed, your customers and clients can easily access your website and services.
3. Providing Trust & Credibility
By owning a business website, you are giving your business the window to tell clients why they should trust your business. Did you know, 75% of people search the internet to find a product or service that you could be offering. When you provide a good service, people will talk about it online and people tend to trust a business after they have read other people’s reviews. By using your website, you will continuously serve consumers online and increase your credibility as a business owner.
4. Business Turn-Over
Without clients, there are no sales, without sales, there is no revenue and without revenue… You are screwed and heading for failure! By creating an online presence, you allow your business the opportunity to sell your products or services 24 hours a day. In short, by having a website that is optimized for search engines and correctly indexed, you can be one step ahead of your competition and have a worldwide visibility that could open more opportunities for your business
5. A 24/7 marketing strategy
There are lots of marketing strategies you can use to advertise and market your business and your website is one. Not only will it provide an online presence but also serve as a marketing strategy for people looking for your services online. With a number of people searching for things online, is it understandable why online marketing has been so effective.
