Websites have become an integral part of running a business. The first thing people do when they hear about you, is google you. First impressions count! You want a customers view of your business be the best it can be, that means having a killer website. You start to gain credibility as people will spend time looking online for what’s on offer, and you don’t want a client or customer going to a competitor.
Compared to offline advertising techniques, a professional looking website that’s well managed and looked after, is an affordable way to generate new business. Keep your current clients and customers informed by updating with information. Got a new menu? New product? New design prototypes? Great! Chuck it on the website, show the world!
People don’t window shop like they used to. Gone are the days where people would stroll past your window and have it catch their eye. Now, will browse before even leaving the comfort of their bed. Having a website means not only will people read reviews but they will leave reviews. By now it’s clear that if you don’t have a website, you’re missing out on opportunities for customers to identify who you are and if they want to spend money with you.
This said, if you have a bad website it is better to have no website. While no website equals missed opportunities, a bad website can actually be worse since it literally makes your business look bad. – Forbes, 2014
