I get asked this question all the time from clients: Why do I need a website?
I can see why many of you ask this question. After all, websites can cost a lot of money. And, if you're just starting out in business or you don't generate a huge amount of revenue, justifying this cost can be hard to do. However, there are a lot of benefits to having a website...you just need to look at it from another perspective...
Let's say you saw a Facebook advertisement and it caught your interest. You liked the ad copy, image and you thought seriously for a second about buying it. What is the FIRST thing you would do?
And why would you do online research? Well, let's be honest - there are just a few online scams out there. These days, before purchasing ANYTHING online, you absolutely must do your homework. So, the first thing you're going to do is go to Google and search their company name in an attempt to find their company website, right?
Whether you realize it or not, that website tells you (an interested buyer) a few things...but mainly it shows you're not a scam, and that you're a serious company who has invested some money into their online foundation. When you see that someone has gone to all the trouble of setting up a website, you know they are a legit company, you know they are serious about what they do, and you feel better about working with them.
So, if you don't have a website, please get one! If you wish, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote.
