More and more customers use the internet to find products and services they require. Having a website will make your business more credible. Without a professional website your potential clients will go to your competitors that have a website. If you have an existing website, but you made it at home, ask a professional company to have a look at it, let them help you create a professional image which inspires great confidence. If you are working from home a good website will definitely benefit you since you have no storefront for your business.
You should never think you can’t afford a professional website, as a business owner you can’t afford not to have one. Once you have paid for your website, you should not be paying more than a R200 a month for your hosting. Compare prices and ask your professional company for advice. Once you have considered the potential market you want to reach with your website, it will be one of the most cost effective ways to promote your business.
A professional website will also enable you to keep your clients informed of the latest trends in your business. It is quick and easy to update your products and services online, letting your clients know about specials or arrival of new products, is a lot easier than printing and distributing it. Printed ads can become outdated, your website can provide current information and news in real time.
You will also be able to contact your clients 24 hours a day 7 days a week providing them the opportunity to view all your product on their laptop, tablet or cellphone, while your business is closed. With our busy schedules this is a great way of making decisions.
A website allows you to target a wider market. Your website will provide an alternative location to sell your product or deliver your services. If you are a retailers, consider getting a eCommerce site as this will be a great place to sell your products online.
Websites are also a great medium to showcase your work. You can do this by having a portfolio section on your site, image gallery and testimonial section about the work you have done.
Believe it or not, but a website will save you time. You will not need to take time to tell people about your products, you can just refer them to your website. If you have a online catalogue your clients will be able to view all your products, saving you time.
You will improve your customer service by adding small things like FAQ or newsletters. This will add value to your product or service and help you create a better service for your clients by using the data they are giving you.
