Are you stuck in the early 2000’s and still don’t think you or your company needs a website? Well, guess what?
You’re oh so.. so so.. Wrong. Here are 21 of the biggest reasons why you’re completely wrong, cleverly and more importantly accurately written by Mr. Peter Visser from Big Mouth Marketing that we’d like to share with you!
Why Do I Need a Website Design? Here are 10 Reasons
Create your online brochure
Companies spend millions creating brochures and distributing them. By having a website design you can skip that entirely.
Your potential customers can find out about you and any of your products online. If you get most of your business through networking and personal connections, then they will want to check out your website design.
A beautiful web design attracts customers
More than 2.4 billion people use the internet every day, and some 90% of those have purchased something or contacted a company, online in the last 12 months. So by not having a website, you will be missing out on a big piece of the pie.
Have you tried getting a business loan recently? It’s not easy, but if you try and the bank manager asks to see your website design, you better have a pretty good one. It doesn’t just stop with the bank, the perceived value of your business will be lower in everyone’s eyes – especially your customers.
Be an Influencer
By having a website potentially thousands of people are going to see it. You are able to influence people’s decisions and educate them.
Time to show off
You know that great feeling you get when people recognize your work? Well, by having a website you can show off what you do and take pride in your work.
Helps with business goals
That’s right! When it comes to writing the content for your website you are going to revisit things about your business that you haven’t in years. You will most likely reassess your business goals.
You can greatly reduce the cost of customer support by having a ticketing system or even just an FAQ on your website. I can think of about 5 companies off the top of my head that streamline your customer service straight from your website.
24 hours per day
Your website runs 24/7 without any supervision or need to lock it up. You can always be there for your customers.
Communication with customers
By having a blog or even just a feed on your website, you can update customers on your newest offers, products, promotions, events, photos, or any other content.
The internet has opened up a whole new world of marketing that didn’t exist before. Your website can attract new business by using a whole host of low cost marketing techniques.
