The best low-cost investment for your small business

2 min read

Best investment? That’s a big call. But it’s true. You need a website today.

Having a website for your business is important, even if you’re not planning on selling any products online. Why? 34% of customers are unlikely to shop with a business if it doesn't have a website.

 

Don’t lose a customer to another business. Today is the day you must launch a website for your small business.

 

Take Off That Invisibility Cloak

 

Imagine you’ve arranged to go on a date at a cafe. You arrive, start searching around but your date hasn’t turned up. How would you feel? Disappointed? Let down? Annoyed?

 

That same psychology can be applied for a customer searching for your business online. Your website needs to show up on Google if you want to appear on their radar.

 

Small Investment For A Big Impression

 

A website is a lot cheaper than buying a physical storefront or renting a market stall. If your small business is product-led, your website can help customers browse your range and make a digital purchase.

 

On the other hand, if your small business is service-led, your new website can be a cost-effective alternative to print advertisements. Make changes instantly and increase your revenue with around-the-clock information about your services.

 

Hands Down The Best Time-Saver

 

A website will help automate many of your business processes to save you hours each day without compromising on sales.

 

For example, instead of repeating FAQs over the phone or giving quotes on email, new customers find and buy your products or read the answers they need on your website page.

 

So you can can enjoy a weekend away without the fear of missing out on a sale.

 

Perception Of Being A Big, Successful Business

 

48% of people cited a website’s design as the number one factor in deciding the credibility of a business.

 

Displaying a site with a visually impressive design, high quality images, and relevant content gives customers the confidence that they’re dealing with an established and professional business.
