5 reasons you need a website (web presence)
A website is like your giant public bulletin board where people can get information on how to find you, where you are located and what you have to offer. If you offer something that people are looking for, you have to consider that a large portion of people (perhaps a market unknown to you thus far) will search the Internet for it, because it’s fast, it’s easy, it’s global and it’s private. A website will put you in competition with others on the Internet.
A website never sleeps
Whether it’s Christmas day or two o’clock in the morning, the Internet never sleeps – which means that you can present your work or hobby 24/7.
Having a web presence will open your concept up to new views, outside your local area, giving people from across the world the chance to browse your ideas or services.
By having a web presence, whether you’re an artist, an entrepreneur or a manager, you will improve your overall image in front of the public and, in turn, they will develop a greater sense of confidence in your organization.
It’s more cost effective to setup a website than renting or buying advertising space and, on top of that, you get to present yourself and/or your services to your audience using many descriptive pages, images, interactive elements, etc.
A website is a communication forum through which your audience can get in touch with you, ask questions and give feedback.
Any business needs a certain online presence. Not only will potential clients expect it to exist, but it’s also one of the easiest ways to get you on the large marketplace.
Did you know that 71% of Internet users go online seeking products and services available in their local area rather than looking in printed catalogs?
You need a website, how else could potential customers find you online? And if they don’t find you online, then who will they find? Your competitors!
A website is a big business opportunity you’ll be missing out on if you don’t have a web presence. Even if your business website lists little more than your address and opening hours, maintaining a web presence could give you the edge over more techno-phobic competitors.
