Unless you want your competitors to get all your future customers, you need a website and it needs to have better SEO than your competitor’s.
It also needs to look and be professional because Your website is now your first impression when your new customers find it.
A website makes it easier for your customers to do business with you. Your customers like the convenience of giving you the information you need from them with online forms that are available 24/7. Remember, your competitors are providing these services on their website.
Your website also provides information about your products and services 24/7 in the best possible way. You can have your best salesperson make their best sales pitch 24/7 with pictures and videos!
Many small business owners think, since they have done business for years without a site, they don’t need one. This couldn’t be further than the truth. If you’ve been in business long enough, you know over time you lose regular customers for circumstances out of your control and these customers have to be replaced with new ones to maintain your income. If your competitor has a website and you don’t, your new customers will find your competitor instead of you.
We recently built a site for a business owner that didn’t think he needed one. He was amazed after the first month at the number of orders and ease of payments that it generated and how much easier it was to make sales over the phone.
It’s kind of like the cell phone, once you have one, you can’t imagine how you lived without it.
