12 reasons why you do.
#1 People assume you already have one
Chances are if your already up and running people assume you will have a website.
#2 Gives you credibility
Having a website gives you credibility and gains trust between you and your customers.
#3 You can get one for free
Yep you heard me right you can get a website absolutely free! You can build a free website online using sites like Weebly, Wix, Wordpress and more. You can design a website yourself using the web builder or you can pay a designer to design it for you (that’s what I do).
#4 Works as an online brochure
A website can act as an online brochure. It can showcase what you have to offer and it’s easier (and cheaper) to make adjustments to than a printed one.
#5 Sell products online
Not only can you showcase your products you can also sell them and use your website as an online shop.
#6 Your competitors have websites
You need to stay competitive with your competitors and without you having a website they are already in the lead.
#7 More customers
About 80% of consumers use the Internet to search for products and services they need before purchasing them. Being online allows you to reach more customers.
#8 Saves you time
You can put information on your website about products and services and then direct people that want to know more to that page. Talking to clients is great but sometimes we don’t have the time to explain exactly what we do to everyone.
#9 You get to show off what you do
This piece of the World Wide Web belongs to you and it’s your place to show off what makes you special! Your website tells a story of who you are as a business.
#10 24/7 access
Your website runs 24/7 without someone having to be there meaning you can be there for your customers all the time even when you’re sleeping. Zzzzz
#11 Makes you a professional
How great is it to be having a conversation with someone and being able to say “I’ve written an article about that on my website.” It automatically makes you sound like a pro. Go you!
#12 Beat the bigger companies
Okay your website isn’t going to beat theirs in the way your thinking but your beautifully designed easy to use website can actually beat the big guys in other ways. Big websites feel very impersonal but your website can feel approachable and can allow you to see the man behind the curtain and costumers like knowing your real.
So if you haven’t got a website yet what are you waiting for. Go and get one!
