No matter what kind of business you own or what industry you work in, your business can benefit from creating a website. Internet marketing is one of the most effective ways to get more customers!
Even if you can’t actually deliver your products or services online (for example, a plumber can’t exactly fix a client’s sink over the Internet), you still need a business website. Regardless of how you actually deliver your products or services, your potential customers are still trying to find your company online.
People don’t use the phone book to look for businesses anymore. In fact, a recent study discovered that almost 70% of adults rarely or never use the phone book to find businesses, products, or services. Instead, people now use the Internet to look for companies. If consumers can’t find a business website for your company, you can be sure they’ll discover your competitors’ websites instead.
Starting a website also makes your business look more credible. For one thing, consumers tend to trust a business more if it has a high-quality website. Plus, with a business website you can create professional email addresses for your company, like email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Many consumers won’t even consider doing business with you if you use a free email account like Gmail or Hotmail because it makes your company look unprofessional.
It’s more important than ever that you take your business online with a business website. Your customers are looking for you online – make sure they can find you!
All of your competitors have websites. That alone should make you want one, but if that’s not enough consider the following facts.
For one thing, 75% of small businesses (including your competitors) show up in the search engine results. When you consider that 85% of consumers search for businesses online, that means lots and lots of potential customers are going to find your competitors’ websites. If you want to claim your share of that market, you need to have a website too.
