If you haven’t realised it yet, websites are crucial for any small business. In this quick blog, I will be going over the reasons why its so important for small business to have a website. So, without further ado, lets get straight into the first reason.

1. 24/7 Access.

Customers will be able to access your site around the clock. With today’s busy life style, a website is just more convenient for consumers and business owners alike. Customers prefer to search products online in the comfort of their own homes rather than drive down to your store. A company website is also a useful resource for employees as you can add time-tables, internal forums, instructional videos etc. and with around the clock access, you can always keep employees and customers informed,

2. Reach a wider audience.

A company website will help get your name out there and showcase the products and services available. Online marketing strategies are proven to be effective so you can reach more potential customers. MineWhat.com compiled a study which shows that 81% of people google a product before they buy it. Another way to get your message across is by blogging.

3. First impressions matter.

With more people Googling and looking up reviews before they shop, its important that a business gives off the best first impression. By having a website, you have the opportunity to tell your customers “hey, I’m trustworthy, look at my testimonials and awesome feedback!”. This will greatly increase the credibility of any business.

4. Your competitors have websites.

That’s right, your competitors have a great advantage over your business. They can reach out to more people and even steal some of your potential customers! Businesses without a website lose money. Lots of money. And if you want to stay on top of competition, then a well designed website is a must.

5. Its cheap!

And the final reason why you should have a website for your business (if you’re not convinced already) is how cheap it is. Having a website isn’t going to cost you an arm and a leg.
