You need a strong presence on the internet to really compete in today’s marketplace. That’s where your customers like to spend a lot of their time — read, watch, and research, socialize, and buy. If people can’t find you easily online, you’re missing out on potential customers.
If your business is online already then you’re already doing it right but if you’re still contemplating – here are a few reasons why you should take your business online right away.
Improving your company image – This alone should be reason enough to start a new website and start selling online. It is an extremely important factor considering that prospective customers could start to wonder how serious you are about business without a website, blog or online presence. Today, a successful online presence is being established by companies of all sizes and industries. You need to have an online presence because your prospects and customers expect you to have one.
Build your brand – No large budget for advertising? There’s no problem. You can afford to use a website, social media profiles, and other web-based efforts to raise brand awareness, build credibility, and develop a loyal and growing customer base, no matter how small you are.
24*7 – While some fast-food restaurants, grocery stores, and gas stations are running 24-hour service, most businesses cannot. That’s, without the web. A key benefit of having an e-commerce website is that at any time — day or night — your customers and prospects can read about your products and place orders on regular business or vacation days. Imagine what this would do for your business.
Internet was made for business – The Internet’s beauty is that your prospective customer(s) can be just one click away from your online store. You can now educate, instruct and solve customer problems through the internet. You can accept and receive orders and payments directly in your inbox.
Reach a wider audience – You are limited to the number of people with your brick and mortar business who can visit you at any given time, let alone find you. With a good website, you can literally have thousands of people visiting your online store at once, even tens of thousands (even millions). Imagine your company’s potential if you can expose your products and services to a potentially unlimited number of interested individuals.
Reduce the cost of operation – Only one task can make a significant difference in cost savings. For example, receiving online orders reduces the need for customer service staff. With inclusive sales and product information online, you’ll simply receive purchase orders and payments through email or into your database. It is possible to reduce staff numbers, thus reducing office space and related office expenses.
