The most important reason to have a website is to connect with people beyond your physical location.
Brick and mortar businesses are limited by the distance people are willing to travel. But an online business is open to the world.
Hours of Operation
Brick and mortar businesses are also limited by the hours it is open. An online business is open 24/7. Customers can shop or read while the physical business is closed.
As technology advances, potential customers or clients are turning increasingly to the internet to find what they need. They are more likely to go to the internet than they are to go to the phone book. Come to think of it, as more people are replacing their land lines with cell phones, do they even have a phone book in their possession?
A web presence is important locally. Potential customers or clients can go to your website to find your hours of operation, your phone number, and your address.
Marketing Your Business
A website is an essential tool for marketing your business. It enables you can inform, educate, or sell products and services locally, nationally, and globally. You can stay in touch with your customers or clients in so many more ways than you can without a website. Newsletters, surveys, blogs, and emails are all ways to maintain customer relations.
Today’s shopper (whether for products or services) assumes you have a website and they are searching for what you have. Your competition most likely has a website already and if you don’t have a web presence, they are very likely to get some of your business.
A web presence is important for answering questions people commonly have, for imparting knowledge and creating credibility.
