Every business needs a website. Why, you ask? Well consider this. times have changed for when people turn to the big yellow book when looking for a service/product. Most people today own a smart device/tablet and surf the web. Over a billion people have access to the World Wide Web (WWW). A recent study found that people spend around 3 hours a day on their smart devices/tablets. You can reach customers online that would possibly never enter your physical store. Whether people are at home, work, or just have a few minutes to spare,in minutes they can do a Google/Yahoo/Safari search for nearby restaurants, stores, or services. If you don’t have a website, you are losing out on millions of customers.
Reach a Larger Customer Base
Having a store in a certain location means only walk-in customers can visit your store to purchase your products. This limits your client base to a geographical location. If you have a website, anyone, anywhere can visit your online business. It exposes your company to the global marketplace thereby increasing your sales. Your website is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, allowing customers to shop at their convenience. Think about the potential increase in sales! The best aspect of this is that you don’t have to be at your business. Your online website will always be open and available.
