Why Do I Need a Website?A website is a further extension to your marketing campaign: it is a salesperson working 24/7 for your business and if you don't have one, or your site is unprofessional or ineffective, you are losing out on valuable sales opportunities.
The internet is increasingly the first port of call for people looking for a product or service. They are able to type in a couple of keywords and are presented with page after page of websites, all offering what they are looking for. People like to take their time researching and comparing the offerings of different companies and online they can browse day or night, ordering products and services without even leaving their home or office.
A business needs an online presence to compete in today's market - even if it is a simple one page, 'business card' type website. As long as you have effective copy, all of your contact details and preferably and contact form, you will have the potential to reach a wider audience than any of your other marketing put together!
In order for your business to flourish, you need to grab hold of every marketing opportunity available to you and using a website to promote or sell your product or service is one of the most cost effective. A good website should be well structured and well designed to maximise its visibility, accessibility and usability.
