If you are a business owner and you aspire to have a website, it’s definitely worth your time and money. Here are top 5 reasons why your business should be online along with a unique website address and impressive design. Read on:
- Having a website is a marketing asset
Your website promotes you 24×7 and doesn’t even require any dedicated employee to handle that. Do you know nearly 30 percent of your consumers won’t even consider a business without a website? So, is it worth taking a risk? Think again!
- People search for you online before buying from you
Here’s another startling fact! Do you know 97% of people research about you before buying from your website to establish credibility? Not just this, above 90 percent of online experiences start with a search engine result. In fact, Google receives nearly 3.5 billion searches per day. Another hard fact! Just this very moment, there will be someone in your area looking for the exact product or service you are selling and who is getting noticed? Certainly not you!
- 75 percent people judge a company’s credibility based on its website design
If you don’t have a website, consumers trust you less, which may affect their decision to do business with you. Therefore, a website is the first place to check an individual or company’s reputation, products, credentials and reviews. Willing to take a risk?
- Nearly 50 percent people leave your website, if they don’t find it convincing and attractive
If your website fails to impress the visitor immediately, you have poor chances of getting a customer on board. Nearly 40 percent people leave a website if they find navigation or website design poor. Is that the risk worth taking?
- I already have enough customers. I really don’t want to add more!
Even when your business is giving you more customers than you can handle, you definitely need a website. Do you know the purpose of the website is not just adding more customers to your list? Here’s the fact. As per the National Restaurant Association, more than 80 percent of Americans find dining locations, directions, hours of operations etc. on their smartphone or tablet. How about adding special deals, offers, company updates, and quick answers to most common questions that customers may have from you or for your business?
So, if you already have a website, look closely. Does it meet the criteria of being referred to as a mobile and SEO friendly website? If you don’t have one, get in touch with a good website design agency and let them weave a digital world of magic for you.
