12 Reasons why you need a Website?

Do I need a Website?

Great question!

If you’re not interested in growing your brand then of course you don’t need a website.  But if you do want to grow and move forward in your business, then you need a website.

Top 12 Reasons you need a Website

1. Customers expect it

Think about it, if you’re looking for a service or product, where do you look first  –  Online.  Even if you find a company’s Facebook page, you still look for the link to their website to look for specific info on their products.  If this was the only reason to have a Website, it would be enough.

2. 24 Hours per Day

Your website is ON 24/7 without your supervision.  In a way you can always be there for your potential customers.   Even when you’re sleeping your customers can still find the info and prices they are looking for.

3. Communication with Customers

By having a website / blog you can update customers on new products, promotions, competitions, newest offers, photo’s and content.  If there’s anything new in your business simply update your info on your website.  This way your customers will always find the most up to date info.

4. It provides Social Proof

Online reviews influence customers’ buying decisions.  Since potential customers are already looking for you online, including customer feedback on your website is a great way to impress them.

5. You don’t need Coding or Technical Skills

Having a website created is not only affordable, but easy to maintain yourself.  Once the outline of your website is built you can easily just add blog posts.  WordPress really makes it easy for anyone to maintain.

6. Marketing

Your online presence rally makes marketing affordable.  With a few simple marketing techniques your website and social media can attract new clients.

7. Customer Support

It can be as easy as a FAQ section on your website.  Potential customers can find answers to their questions before making a buying decision.  If they can’t find an answer to a question they might have, they can simply contact you through your contact form.

8. You can Show Up in Google Search Results

Most people search online first when they need a product or service.  That means they go to Google and type in the keywords of what they are looking for, like:  JUMPING CASTLE BRACKENFELL.

If you don’t have a website, the chances of your business showing up in the search results is Zero.  If you don’t have a fishing line in the water, you can’t catch a fish.

9. Email Address

Yes, you can use your gmail account address:  jannie83@gmail.com, but with a website you can have your own email address.

It’s more professional and easier to remember.

10. Level the Playing Field

A work at home mom can’t compete with a big business by building a bigger skyscraper, but online you can have a beautifully designed website to compete with all the big names in your industry.

11. Affordable

One of the biggest objections people have against getting a website, is that it costs too much.  This is no longer the case.  You don’t have to spend thousands on design anymore.  There are many web designers who will design and set up your website for FREE and you only pay a minimal fee for the hosting.
