Is it necessary to have a website

Living in todays digital world, a website is necessary for all business, big or small.

If you have a business and don’t have a website, you are probably losing some great opportunities for success.

A website is the way forward for marketing strategies to help your business grow.

It is a fact of life today that the internet has a wider reach than any other form of advertising. Whilst it does take time to drive traffic to your website, it costs very little if you get the right advice. Your website will be the center of your company`s online presence; through it, you advertise your business around the Web on social networking sites, forums and google ad words if you have the budget to go that way.

  1. Increasing your business is a major reason for having a website. Even if people know of you through word of mouth, they may want to carry out further research online first. You should have a map and contact details at the very least.
  2. Another important reason to have a website is to give your business credibility. By providing a website, you are giving your business the opportunity to tell consumers why they should trust you and testimonials and facts about your business reinforce it. Most people today search the internet for a product or service before they decide if it is for them. One of the great things about the internet is that the size of your company does not really matter, the focus is all about how you present online. You can get your business to rank in Google along side a large competitor and perhaps take some of their traffic, just by having a smart strategy. This is a big part of the reason that a website is even more important for a small business than a big one, it tends to even the playing field.
  3. Your Website is available 24/7, providing valuable information about your business. Because of this, your customers and potential customers can visit your site at their leisure and may notice more than they would when they are otherwise pre-occupied. This makes it an invaluable resource for  your business
  4. A shop with e-commerce can give a dramatic boost to your sales. Before the internet, people spent hours shopping to find just the right product. Now the shops come to you, in the comfort of your own home.
  5. Most people assume that you have a website. If you don't you may again miss out on business, as their expectation is to find you online and if they don't, they settle for someone else .
  6. The fact is, having a website is the way to move forward successfully. The more professional it is, the more advantages you can gain. You can get it made with WordPress or some other platform that people consider easy to use and gradually get comfortable enough to do it yourself, or not in a lot of cases.
