Why your business needs a website in 2019
Most business owners know that when it comes to staying ahead of their competitors, finding successful ways to market their business is absolutely necessary for growth. However, we all know how busy most business owners are too, and some business owners don’t even have a website, but as technology progresses, having an online presence is becoming increasingly important. Data actually suggests that now some customers won’t even give some companies a second thought if they don’t have their own website. It is unfortunate that some consumers think that way, but it still is a fact. That being said, here are some wonderful reasons why your business should have a website in 2019.
Websites Can Help Bring You New Leads
If you are used to getting business from just referrals, the phonebook, or television, then it’s time to start playing catch up. Did you know that in 2019 over 50% of users browsing the internet are using their smartphones? Did you also know that when most smartphone users usually determine who they will do business with based on the aesthetics of the company’s website? This is another unfortunate fact, but it is still true in some cases and in some ways it is understandable.
If you do take the time to build your website or you hire a web designer to do it for you, then be sure to take the time to really try and impress your customers with it, because first impressions can mean everything.
Your Website Can Help Your Customers
If your company sells products or services and you give the option of letting your customers pay online, then you might actually retain more business this way. Let’s face it, many people don’t want to pick up the phone anymore to re-order simple services or pay their bill, because it’s 2019 and people are on the constantly on the go. Adding little features like this can not only help increase the length of your sales cycle, but it can also start helping you build more trust with your customers, too.
A Website Can Help Build Your Brand
We already discussed how your website can be used to attract new leads and build trust with your customers, but let’s not forget that your website is basically like prime real estate on the internet and having it online means you can gain constant brand awareness. Furthermore, if you get serious about building an online presence, then you can start researching ways to increase your business’s reach even further with tactics involving search engine optimization and social media. These tactics can really help your business reach new heights when they are executed properly, but they can also cause you to lose customers too if you don’t know what you’re doing or if you pull a disappearing act on your audience.
