Years ago, when you wanted to find information about a service or company, the first step was to look in the yellow pages. Now, with the use of computers, smartphones, and tablets, all kinds of information sought can be located in seconds. Many companies lose potential customers just because of no web presence. Here are some reasons why a business needs a website:
Improved customer service because the website is available 24/7, which means potential customers can contact you via the website at any time.
A web address is much easier to remember than a phone number.
The company can report new services, updates and all referring to the company via the website which helps the credibility of the business.
Having an email with a .com domain is more professional than a private one of a free service. Example, email@example.com is better than one with Gmail, Outlook, Hotmail, or Yahoo.
Being found on search engines Google search, Yahoo, Bing, etc. Google processes approximately 3.5 billion searches a day. These searches are a source of potential customers that every business should consider.
Websites can be accessed from around the world. A person can access your website no matter where and any time.
Being available online is an advantage over the competition because through computer or phone, the user can get the information they need from your business.
It is cheaper to have a website. As I said before, the websites are always available. Imagine if you had to pay a commercial that lasts 24 hours a day and all year. Maintaining a website costs only a small monthly fee.
