Why you need a business website?


Every business should consider an online presence as it can be a very effective sales channel and marketing tool. The Internet is being used on a regular basis by millions worldwide with more connecting every day.

Worldwide Internet Population 2004: 934 million (Computer Industry Almanac)
Projection for 2005: 1.07 billion (Computer Industry Almanac)
Projection for 2006: 1.21 billion (Computer Industry Almanac)
Projection for 2007: 1.35 billion (Computer Industry Almanac)

Three-Quarters of Americans have access from home which has risen roughly 9 percent in a year.


Regardless of whether you sell your product online, you should consider an online presence. This is so that customers, potential employees, partners and even potential investors can easily and quickly find more information about your company, the products and services you have to offer, as well as being able to contact you.

Think of your web site as a marketing tool which could generate a return on a modest investment. Your competition is probably already online and you need to use every possible avenue just to keep up. You should look at having a web site as a valuable investment in you and your company's future.

Getting noticed.

More and more people and businesses use the Internet to find information about products or services. Search engines like Yahoo or Google are quickly becoming the new "yellow pages".

Your website is a means of offering information to those who may be researching online before buying. If you don't have a website, how are they going to even get a chance to see what you have to offer?

In the same respect, if a potential client has heard about you but can't find your business card, they may turn to the Internet to try and locate your contact information or to learn more about you. Whether they are 5 or 5,000 miles away.

Even if your service is normally only preformed locally, there is always the potential to expand. You are more likely to increase your local client base if your website is available for them to research your service also.

Placing your unique web address on your promotional material, advertising and business stationery will enable potential customers to get a thorough idea of what your company can do. Existing customers can frequently look back at your site to keep abreast of any changes or special offers.


With a professional-looking web site, your small business can project the image and professionalism of a much larger company.

Your site needs to attract new visitors and it needs to keep them coming back. Content is essential !

Having a website allows your business to advertise 24 hours a day, seven days a week and it is available whenever someone is in need of information on your product or services.

Users to your site make quick and often harsh judgment calls within seconds of viewing your homepage. By making an outstanding first impression with a crisp, clean, professional look the user gets a sense of trust from the company behind the site.

The elements you include on your website are a determining factor for how successful a marketing device it will be for you.

You can even easily include a little something extra, such as tips and resources, to help your clients see your dedication to providing topnotch customer service.

Get to the point, provide a wealth of information about your product or service and then inspire them to want to contact you for a little more information.

By including your email address on your site, potential clients have a cheaper, reliable and more convenient way of making direct contact with you.

How expensive would it be to run an advertisement that would reach such a vast client base? Your website allows you to create and showcase much more of your information and at a reasonable cost.

Ease of content change.

With your Internet site, changing anything is a simple and inexpensive process.

Say you just received a new product, that you can offer a new service or you want to advertise a "special". Reaching your customers by the normal means of communication would be time-consuming and expensive, but sending a "blanket" email to all your customers would be instant and free. Frequent updates and monthly "specials" will generate interest with existing and potential customers who will keep coming back to check on these deals.


This is a medium which should be embraced by all businesses. The potential is there for you to use and capitalize upon.

Consider a website that compliments your existing sales and marketing attempts.

Is your existing website performing as well as you thought it would ?

If your company does not have a website, are you losing customers?

Are they wondering why you do not have a website when all of your competition does?
