Why Do I Need a Website For My Business – Here Are Top 10 Reasons

When I started my own business few years ago, the first thing that came in my mind was “I need to have a website”. Why do I need a website?, Why did I think that?

I made the decision and here are my reasons.

Reason 1 – Online-Brochure

Small and medium businesses spend thousands of dollars creating catalogues and brochures and their distribution. By having a professionally designed website, you can skip this completely. Your prospective customers can find about your company, products and services easily online. If you do most of your business through personal connections and networking, then they might want to check your website too before doing business with you.

Reason 2 – More Potential Customers

More than 3 billion people are now using internet to look for products, services, 95% of those have bought something or made an enquiry online in the last twelve months. So by not having your presence online, you have more chances of missing out on a big piece of pie.

Reason 3 – Value of Your Business

Have you been trying to get a business loan recently? You know that it’s not that easy, but when you try to get the business loan and the bank asks to check your website, you better have a professional one. It just doesn’t stop with the bank; not having a website for your business will lessen the value of your business in everyone’s eyes, especially your potential customers.

If you have a professional website, possibly hundreds of people and ideally your target customers are going to see it. You will be easily able to educate them and influence their decisions.

Reason 4 – Helps To Achieve Business Goals

That is correct, when it comes to gathering information and writing content for your business website, you are going to re-visit many things about your business that you have not paid attention to in years. You will probably re-assess your business objectives and goals.

Reason 5 – Showcase Your Work

You know that it feels great when your work is recognized by people, well, by having a professional website, you can easily showcase your work and explain what you do and how you do it for your customers.

Reason 6 – Your Business is Open 24 / 7

Your business will run 24 hours a day and 7 days a week without any supervision. Your customers can always get in touch with you through an inquiry form and will always be there for your customers.

Reason 7 – Internet Marketing

The World Wide Web has opened up a whole new world of internet marketing that didn’t have any existence before. Your business website can easily attract new potential business by using some search engine, digital and internet marketing techniques.

Reason 8 – Better Customers Service

Your business website can greatly help you in reducing the customer service cost by having a system called “Ticketing” or even just a section for FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) on your website.

Reason 9 – Email@yourbusinessname.com

I understand there are many ways to do this, but your website could help you getting your own email address under your domain name, for example steve@mydomain.com, it is easier to remember and offcourse more professional. I know we love using our personal email address hosted with gmail or yahoo but it doesn’t really look professional to the customers.

Reason 10 – Beat The Competitors

Have you ever wanted to start the business but didn’t have an idea how to beat all the competitors out there? By creating a highly professional and incredible website with a strong digital marketing strategy, you can break the big guys in-to pieces. You will have less chance of creating bigger sky-scrapper, however your business web site can break down the big wall between you and them.
