The benefits of a website for your business
Creating a website for your business requires an investment in time and money. It is therefore legitimate to think about your return on investment before embarking on the project to create your company’s website. This article explores the benefits of a website for your business to help you decide if it is a necessary or useful investment.
Your business website is a marketing tool. With a quality presence on the web, you can convince new customers to buy your products and make use of your services. In other words, the fundamental purpose of your website is to increase your turnover.
Let us now enter into details of the benefits that can provide a website for a company.
Increase your visibility
Once your website online, you have an internet presence day and night. Whether you are sleeping, biking or drinking a coffee, your potential customers can find you, learn how to join and find out where your business is located. They can also find your offers and products, to get an idea of who you are and simply begin to connect with you through your website.
The fundamental advantages of a website rich in information
By building a website rich in information, which presents in detail your services, your products and your approach to trade personal and professional manner, you will get many advantages:
- You increase your professional credibility by the clarity and quality of texts (and images) of your website;
- You have contacts with potential customers better informed (your website) who already know they are actually interested in your products or services;
- You have the ability to send potential customers to your website for more information (this prevents you from having to always repeat the same basic things);.
The information content of your site is also the base that will allow your website to be well referenced in search engines like Google. (Two articles on this subject: the “Key Word” and its importance to SEO and Quality content generates confidence on the web ).
Certainly, your customers will always arise and again the same questions. How this option cost? What is the delivery delay? What is the margin of error in your estimate? When will you finish work? Plus a multitude of other specific issues related to the specificities of your products or services you offer.If your website answers these questions when your potential customers to contact you, they have already read many information about your services and products. This is a major time saver in the long run because when they contact you, you are already customers better informed and the discussion can get to the point faster.More advanced prospects in the “buying cycle”.
Because your prospects (potential customers) have already read your website, they have had the opportunity to reflect if your services or products really interested them. There will be a greater proportion of people actually interested in your products and services that contact you. You stop wasting time talking to people who are not really interested in what your business does.
Your potential clients come to you with more specific questions and they are already more advanced in the “buying cycle” that led to the decision to use your services or buy your products.
Better professional image.
When using the phone began to spread in society, some businesses have adopted immediately and others wanted to continue with the “tried and true methods of the past.” Today, it seems unthinkable that a trade was not a phone number.
The situation with the Internet is similar. Today in Switzerland there are many companies that have a website. But there are also still many companies that do not have a website …
Choosing not to have a website, is choosing to leave an important part of your potential customers turn to your competitors.
In a few years all serious companies have a website in Switzerland, in the same way that all companies today have a phone number and email use. If your company has no website, the question is simply how long you will let your competition using the internet to your dependent.
You are free to make the decision to exceed the competition with a modern website, professional, intuitive and high-quality information.
Establish a relationship of trust.
Two scenarios are possible.
(1) Potential customers can find your business on the internet or
(2) They can go to your site to learn more about your business and what you offer. In both cases, the key to the success of your website is to establish a relationship of trust with your visitors.
( 3) Some potential customers can find your website through a Google search, with online or offline advertising, a link in an email or on your Facebook page. These are people who you have never met and who do not know any of your business. Their first impression on seeing your website is very important. If you can convince them your skills and quality of your products by giving them useful and easily accessible information, new customers will contact you soon!
( 4) Some potential customers you have already met or they heard about your business by someone. But before deciding to invest money in your services or products, they would like to be certain that you are a serious company, you sell quality products or have the skills to do what they need. They also have a host of specific issues. If your web site answers questions in a competent and useful way, if your website is compelling, you can deepen the relationship with them. They may have you ever met, but now, thanks to your website, they see better “what is behind” your business, what you offer and this gives them the confidence to contact you, this time having decided to buy your products or services.If your web site manages to gain the trust of your visitors, it will become a powerful marketing tool.
Simplicity and efficiency of sales through e-commerce.
Internet offers many opportunities to simplify product sales procedures. The most powerful of these is of course the online sale. The investment to set up an online sales site is greater than for a normal website. But the return on investment can be extremely important:.
- You save the work of the person working the cash for all sales made online, since (almost) everything is automated;.
- People can buy your products at any time, regardless of your opening hours;.
- Your customers can buy your products from anywhere, provided they have an internet connection and a credit card (or other online payment method);.
- The interface of your web site can automatically generate your customers online database which not only allows you to easily manage orders more centrally, but also to get back to your customers by email to offer them other products by subsequently, thus developing your long term marketing strategy.And more. But I will stop here because this article is not specifically about e-commerce.
Conclusion: think about your ROI.
