1. Why do you need a website?
The internet gives small business owners and marketers with varying financial budgets from all walks of life the ability to level the playing field with larger and often much better financed competitors. By having a website, you can reach a wider and broader audience, sell more to various types of clientele, share more information, and keep current customers better informed. In addition, you can readily market yourself, your product/s or business inexpensively, quickly and effectively – all with the click of the mouse. Not to mention the fact that the rent on the internet is extremely cheap compared to a bricks-and-mortar store or office lease. Internet will continue to expand and flourish with each new on-line technology developed, introduced, and embraced by business and consumers alike.
The advantage of internet website is open 24/7. You can read information to customers and business alliances in moments, not hours, days or weeks, and you can update or alter your marketing message and strategy quickly, conveniently, and very inexpensively. The question should not be why do you need a website? But rather why do you not already have one?
