Having a website will attract new customers to your business and make you more money.
We like this stat so much, we’re mentioning it twice: 81% of people research a business or service online before making a purchase decision. If you don’t have a website, you have no chance of capturing a share of this market.
Your website can be available 24/7/365 even when you’re not. A website acts as your “always-on” business advocate during and outside of office hours.
Websites help you convert more of your existing referrals because most people still do their research and stack you against your competitors.
Add instant credibility to your business simply by having a website.
The 21st-century consumer is a skeptic; in fact, 56% of people stated that they won’t trust a business without a website. Having a good website instantly boosts your credibility as a legitimate business.
First impressions count and websites allow you to make a very strong impression with a well-designed introduction for your business.
A website can help showcase your expertise and better position your business. A website can be your number one tool for standing out in a crowd.
It’s not as hard, or as expensive, as you think.
You don’t need to be tech-savvy to get a website. Many web development companies have very simple signup processes which make the process quick and painless for you.
It can be very cost-effective.
Websites offer a better return on investment than any other form of advertising.
If you’re planning to market your business, a website should be your first priority. Over time the relatively low investment of getting a business website will pay dividends by driving you new customers and building your brand. Plus, it’s a legitimate business expense and a tax write-off.
