If you’re reading this, you’re probably starting a business and wondering the following questions… “Do I really need a website for my business?”, “Is it important for me to have a website?”…
The answer is a big fat YES!
But before you go ahead and create a website for yourself, you should understand the “why” behind it. It’s so much more than just converting your business card into a digital format.
When your website is done right, your potential customers should see a glimpse of what your business is about and say, “take my money” so you can help them with their problem or pleasure! After all, that’s what your business should really be about.
In this blog post, I’m going to discuss the 3 reasons why you need a website for your business and how it can help you get more sales.
1, Your Customers Can Find You 24/7
Whether your business sells products or offers a service, a website allows you to be found by your potential customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Having a website means you could be getting leads and making money while you sleep. How amazing is that!? Gone are the days you needed to have a physical store and be fully awake to make a living.
It doesn’t matter where you’re located in the world; your customers can now connect with you in just a few clicks.
You can reach way more people than ever before by having a website for your business.
2, Your Website Can Sell for You
Imagine getting a lead while you sleep because your website is up and running online, connecting with your potential customers.
When your website is done right, it should attract the right customers and do the selling for you.
If your potential customers connect with your website, they’ll proceed to make a purchase or enquire for more information.
Of course, to get them over the line, it also comes down to your actual offers, sales conversations, customer service and more…
But first, you need a website to start the conversation.
3, Your Website Makes You More Credible
If you don’t want to invest in having a website for your business, you could potentially be losing more money than you think.
For many people looking for a product or service online, when they find out that a business doesn’t have a website, they’re more than likely to move onto the next option.
Why do some people steer away from businesses that don’t have a website?
The answer is credibility. People don’t want to spend their hard earned money on something they’re not sure of or have doubts if a particular business is legitimate.
Every single customer who has turned away because a business doesn’t have its own website has a value of XYZ. Only you can answer this question as to how much you’re actually losing when you continue to not have an online presence for your business.
More often than not, people like to check out a business online after getting a business card from someone or finding them on social media.
What they really want to know is that the business is legitimate and they are going to deliver on their promise once they pay them.
When a business doesn’t have a website, it shows that they’re not serious about what they do to invest in something so important; therefore, why should they spend their money there?
A business without a website is like searching for an address that doesn’t exist on Google Maps.
There’s way more gain than loss when you have a website for your business.
Let’s put your business on the map and make more sales together!
