The Internet has dramatically changed the way business is done, not to mention the way the world communicates. Because of this, websites are no longer a novelty, they’re a necessity for any organization.
But building a website doesn’t have to be a burden—in fact, it’s a tremendous opportunity, if approached properly. Here’s what a website can do for you:
- Expand your customer base by reaching new audiences that otherwise might not find out about your business. A website can personalize your company and make potential customers comfortable about doing business with you before you even speak with them.
- Save money on advertising, publishing and marketing costs. Information can be updated more quickly, frequently, and less expensively than in traditional media such as print, radio, or the yellow pages.
- Increase market presence by allowing people to find out about your company from anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day.
- Add value to your advertising dollar. With a website, your company has more space to work with and unlimited use of color, in addition to many other benefits over other advertising methods.
- Level the playing field with an online presence. By conveying professionalism and quality, your business can be more attractive to potential customers than your largest competitor.
- Achieve global awareness by being accessible to anyone, anywhere, at any time.
- Customers come to you through search engines, by typing in your address, or clicking on a link to your site. For once, customers find you, so you don’t have to work so hard to seek them out.
- Reach an unlimited audience because, unlike printed materials, there is no limit to the number of times you can pass out a web address or the number of times a website can be viewed.
- Share corporate documents and data more efficiently through the use of a customized web-enabled database or application.
- Add credibility among customers who want to be impressed. Remember that in most cases, a company that doesn’t have a website is taken less seriously in today’s marketplace.
- Save time spent on customer service by referring customers to your website.
- Help customers find you in the “real” world by making your contact information more accessible.
