The impact of the Internet on small businesses is huge. If you have a business, small or large, even if you don’t think your service or products can be sold online, you should have a website. Period.
More than 100 million shoppers are now online, purchasing everything from books to computers to cars to real estate to anything else, you name it. You should, at the very least, have a presence on the web so customers, potential employees, business partners and perhaps even investors can quickly and easily learn more about your business and the products or services you have to offer.
- Provide more information to your clients in a better way
Having a website is definitely helpful in marketing your services. If you have visual examples of what you do, a website will act as a portfolio and introduce your work to prospective clients. Your website is just like an online brochure to your potential clients. You can direct your clients to your website for more detailed information, which is more effective and efficient than delivering a paper booklet. In addition, you save money on printing marketing materials.
- Reach more potential target customers
Your business website is online and everybody can visit it at anytime from anywhere in the world. Anybody visiting your website can be your potential client. You need to make your website more visible and attractive to your visitors. How can you do that? With proper search engine optimization, your website will have a higher Google page rank. Your site will be displayed on top of your competitors when potential clients search your products through search engines such as Google or Yahoo! With a professional and user-friendly web design, your visitors will stay at your website for longer time. Research has shown that the more time visitors spend on your site, the higher the possibility they will buy your services or products.
- Learn more about your target customers
You can use web analytic software to keep track of your visitors. For example, you will be able to find out where are they from, how they found your website, what information they are looking for, how long did they stay on your site, how often do they come back, … etc. Based on the intelligence analysis, you can fine tune your website and improve your services to better meet your clients’ needs.
- Interact with your existing and potential clients virtually
What’s the best way to retain your clients? – By interacting with them, by building personal relationships with them. That’s why those social networking websites (FaceBook, Twitter) are becoming more popular in the mainstream. Small business owners can combine a blog or forum into their website to get feedback for services from clients directly. You don’t need to meet them in person in order to build a relationship with them. Build a community for your clients and they will become loyal customers.
- Keep your competitive advantage
Simply put, if you don’t have a website, you are losing business to your competitors that do.
- A website is not enough, you need a professional website for your small business
