Find out why with 9 reasons for your business to have a website [/hdlg] [hdmd]#1 online brochure[/hdmd] [l]Every year companies spend millions on creating and distributing brochures. By having a professionally designed website you can skip that process, and its associated costs, entirely if you wish. Your potential customers will have all the info about you, your products and your services at their fingertips rather than being lost in the bottom of that draw, you know the draw I’m on about ;) [/l] [hdmd]#2 – more customers[/hdmd] [l]More than [b]2.4 billion people[/b] use the internet every day and roughly 90% of those internet users have purchased something, or contacted a company, online in the last 12 months. That’s an awfully big piece of an extremely large pie that you’re missing out on by not having a website. [/l] [hdmd]#3 – business value[/hdmd] [l]Having a professionally designed website can increase the perceived value of your business. Having no website, or a badly designed site, can lower the perceived value of your business in everyone’s eyes. From your bank manager when you are trying to get finance for your business to your customers. [/l] [hdmd]#4 – Influence[/hdmd] [l]Having a professionally designed website opens your business to the possibility of being seen by thousands of people. This is your opportunity to influence those people’s decisions. By having a professionally designed website that has well-presented relevant information can help build trust in your brand. [/l] [hdmd]#5 – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week[/hdmd] [l]While your business hours may be the standard 9 – 5 having a professionally designed website means that your customers can still find you after office hours. This does not mean that you no longer have a personal life and you’ve got to stay awake 24/7, it just means that no matter the time or the place your customers will know where to look to find out more about your products or services. [/l] [hdmd]#6 – Marketing[/hdmd] [l]The internet has opened the door to a whole new world of marketing possibilities that did not exist before. Your website enables you to send the exact message that you want your customers to view. There are many forms of online marketing, some of which are even free, which enables you to do business at a rate you’ve only ever dreamed of. [/l] [hdmd]#7 – Customer Contact[/hdmd] [l]If you have a website then no matter the time or the place your customers can send you a message to find out more information or to tell you that your products are wonderful or, well the lists goes on but suffice to say communication has always and will always be an essential part of business. Having a website with a contact form just makes it easier for everybody involved. [/l] [hdmd]#8 – Do business your own way[/hdmd] [l]It’s your business so you can do whatever you like. So you want to write a blog and feel it appropriate to drop the f-bomb here and there then go for it. It is your business and your website so you do what you feel would be most beneficial to your company. The internet offer a much less formal way to do business than traditional methods. [/l] [hdmd]#9 – Instantaneous credibility[/hdmd] [l]Have you ever had difficulty making a sale? Or convincing the customer that you are the person they need? By having a professionally designed website you can help to foster some instant credibility with your potential customers. First impressions are everything in this world so make sure your website gives a great first impression. [/l] [l]So there you have it 9 reasons why you should have a website for your business. Have you got one yet?....[/l]

About the author

My name is Michael Griffiths, I am a website designer and developer and the owner of Griffiths Web Design. I am based in Royston, Hertfordshire. Most of my work is local, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Essex etc. but that’s not to say I won’t work elsewhere. One of the wonders of modern technology is remote working. So no matter where the client is located it is always possible to connect.

I specialise in creating ASP.NET webforms applications using C#. I use Microsoft SQL Server for database development and on the front end I use Html, CSS and JavaScript. I am also proficient in the use of jQuery and several CSS frameworks.

One of my greatest passions in life is learning. Which is why I chose to pursue a career in web design and development, technology is in a state of constant and rapid evolution which means there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy writing, both fiction and non-fiction.
