REASONS WHY YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS A PROFESSIONAL WEBSITE!
- YOUR SMALL BUSINESS WILL GAIN CREDIBILITY
It is very obvious that consumers use the internet more often to search for the products or services they need. Your small business will gain credibility by having a website. Without one, potential customers will go to your competitors that do. Let’s say you have a website already, well, it is important to have it professionally redesigned in order to provide your business with a professional image which will inspire even greater confidence. For home-based businesses, this is particularly beneficial since you do not have a store front to promote your products or services.
- A WEBSITE SAVES YOU MONEY
Do not think that you cannot afford a professional website as a small business owner, what you cannot do is not to afford. Although the cost of designing a website varies, once it’s up and running, a website for a small business generally costs under N100,000 a year and, in some cases, as little as N40,000. Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, when you consider the potential market you can reach with a website, it is a very cost effective way to promote your business.
- IT WILL ENABLE YOU TO KEEP YOUR CUSTOMERS INFORMED
Think of your website as being your online brochure or catalogue. Updating information about your product and services is way much easier and quicker on a website than in print material, making it an effective way of letting your customers know about the arrival of new products, upcoming events, special promotions, or any new services you now offer. You website can provide and maintain current information and news unlike printed information and ads which quickly become outdated.
- IT IS ALWAYS ACCESSIBLE
A website is available to both your regular and potential customers 24/7/365 providing them with the convenience of reviewing your products and services when your store or office is closed. With today’s busy lifestyles, this is a great selling point when making a purchase decision.
- A WEBSITE MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO TARGET A WIDER MARKET
Whether you provide products or services, your website will provide an alternative location to sell them. As a retailer, having a website (eCommerce) is a great place to sell your products to a wider market; even services can be made available globally. Don’t think you’ll be able to sell your products or services online? Don’t forget, even cars and houses sell online!
- IT PROVIDES A PLATFORM WHERE YOU CAN SHOWCASE YOUR WORK
No matter what type of business you’re in, a website is a great place to showcase your work. By including a portfolio or image gallery, as well as testimonials about your work, you can demonstrate what makes your business unique.
- A WEBSITE SAVES YOU TIME
