Thinking about getting a
Having a web site really does make sense for any size or type of
business. Consider the examples below and ask yourself what
other form of advertising can give you as much, 24 hours a day, 7
days a week, for anywhere near the same yearly cost. A
website is one of the most flexible forms of information
dissemination, too, allowing you instant access to change or
update what your customers see.
Even if you don't
plan to sell your products directly online, a website can
give your customers an idea of what to expect when they
come to your store. It's also a great way to notify
your customers of specials, discounts, and more.
Great ways to encourage repeat business. Giving your
customers the option of signing up for your online mailing
list gives you instant access to a receptive audience, and
your customers instant access to the best deals and most
up to date information possible.
If you do plan on
selling directly online, we can work a great shopping cart
program into your site. This gives you the ability
to instantly add/edit/delete products, and lets your
customers shop from the comfort of home. If you take
orders via telephone, you may find it time
consuming. With an online store your customers can
place orders any time of the day, get instant confirmation
of their order, and you can process them at your
leisure! No more dealing with ringing phones all
throughout the day. Now you can choose what time of
your day to devote to order processing, and your web site
handles the rest while you are free to do other work.
Do you sell specialty
products? Specialty stores generally have great
repeat business, and customers that know just what they
want. Just as the example above, whether you decide
to sell directly online or not, a website gives you an
invaluable resource for giving your customers the
information they need, and you the resources to motivate
your customers to buy.
|If you offer services,
a web site gives you a great way to get the word
out. Think of the last time you saw that pickup
truck around town with the magnetic sign on the door:
"Paint Pro's - House painters". What are
the chances of you remembering the phone number and
picking up the phone to ask questions the next time your
house needs some fresh paint?
Now, lets change that sign to
read: "Paint Pro's - House painters. Visit us
online at: www.PaintPro.com" Now what are the chances of you remembering
that web site, and taking a casual look this evening after
you're done checking your email? The long term
advantage is dramatic too, as one person tells another
and so on.
|If you're reading
this, it means you're considering a web site for your
place. Don't wait. It's clear that online
shopping and research will only grow bigger and
bigger. Any business, no matter how small, will
benefit in some way from having a web site. Just
having a recognizable email address like firstname.lastname@example.org
alone can be a great advantage in this day and age, and
our features go far beyond that. Please feel free to
browse around this site, and please don't hesitate to
contact me if you have any questions at all.
