Why Do I Need A Website For My Business?
Ask yourself, am I making my presence felt on the Internet?
Do I want to earn an income on the internet?
Do I need a website for my online business?
You know, not so long ago if you wanted to check when a movie was playing, you’d consult your local newspaper. Or, if you wanted to find someone to remodel your kitchen, you’d open the yellow pages or similar directory.
However, for an increasing number of consumers, those habits are as dated as an old pair of faded bell bottoms……………remember those!!!
Mobile Internet use is now surpassing desktop and laptop use, so now Google are also starting to index apps, which will see an explosion in this area over the next few years.
Introduce Yourself to your Customers
The Internet offers you an opportunity to introduce yourself to consumers exactly when they are searching for your business – that is by your website appearing in the major search engines like Google. Your website can be as much about customer service as it is about selling products and services.
Your Website Can be Serious & Professional
With your very own website your business or service will be much more credible and professional looking to new and existing visitors or customers.
It profiles you, offers valuable information about your product or service and will show your customers that you are available – it is your virtual Shop Window.

Five Good Reasons for a Website
There are numerous reasons why even the smallest business can benefit from a Web presence, here are just five key considerations:
With more and more consumers logging onto the Web to research products and services, if they are going to find your business, your business must be on the Web.
With a Web site, you are no longer limited to a customer base that is in physical proximity to your business premises. Your place of business can be hundreds of miles from your customers or your business could be in Boston with your customers in Bangkok or anywhere else in the world.
When customers can log onto your Website and easily find the information they want and when they want it, their satisfaction level increases.
A professional looking Website can level the playing field for smaller companies trying to compete against larger enterprises. It’s also a way to stay in the game, even if people can’t find you on the Web chances are they can find your competitors.
When you can point customers, partners, even potential employees or investors to a Website, it tells them you are a serious, professional business.
Getting on the Web quickly
Not so long ago, having a Website was out of reach for most small businesses. What, with the cost of hiring programmers, designers, writers and paying for hosting services plus the time commitment involved in keeping the site updated – well, it just was not possible or affordable.
Thankfully, times have changed. The time and expense once associated with having a Website has been replaced with template-driven software services that make it a quick and relatively painless process to build a basic Website.
There are many options out there, some will promise that you can pop out a website in a few hours but you will soon discover, some services of that type, are very limited with their design options, functionality, training offered and ongoing support.
Another concern that makes some small businesses reluctant to make the move to the Web is the need to put up a site with lots of different pages. Nowadays, however, a website can be a work in progress and, at the very least, you can start out with a “business card” type design containing just some basic information about your company like:
- Name, Logo, Location, Contact information
- Brief description of products or services
