What are the benefits to having a website?

 

More Professional and increases credibility

A website helps you appear more professional. 84% of consumers believe a business with a website is more credible than one that only has a social media page.

If you’ve previously conducted business using a personal email address, having your own website enables you to create a branded email address (such as info@websitename.com). This helps add professionalism to all of your correspondence. Additionally, using personal email addresses is no longer allowed with several email marketing solutions. This means you will require a business email account if you wish to use and reap the benefits of email marketing.

 

You can have a 24/7 Salesperson

The internet never closes! Your website is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it’s the face of your business!

Customers can find out more about you, the services you offer, make purchases and book appointments at any time. Day or night. When suits them!

 

Beat your competition

At least 70% of people research a company online before visiting it or making a purchase.
If your competitors are online and you’re not… those competitors get the first interactions with the customers.

 

Automate your services

Many of the processes that you do manually can be automated.
Customers can book appointments, purchase products and sign up for membership all on your website. This saves you time and allows you to focus on your business rather than taking calls and manually inputing monotonous tasks.

 

Marketing

If you have a website you are available to a much wider audience. Anyone can find you – therefore increasing potential customers.

You can implement email marketing strategies to get people to sign up to your mailing list for discount codes, special offers or new products. You can also have a blog to extend you reach and use affiliate marketing and ads to get more passive income.
On a website you can also use search engine optimisation techniques. These can help you get found easier on a google search than social media alone.
