Ten Reasons Why You Need A Website

A lot of new businesses are asking themselves why they should have a website, it’s a good starting point to understanding what the goals of your website should be. These goals can range for example from getting prospective customers to download a brochure for your services to getting those who might be interested in your field to sign up for a newsletter service. So to kick off this blog we’ve decided to start with a Ten Reasons Why You Need A Website post. Add yours in the comments section.

  • A website makes it easy for people to get your contact details without having to drag out the phone book or look for your business card
  • It acts as a proxy for you when your customers, clients and associates are looking for information and you’re trying to get in a bit of time with your friends and family
  • Because there’s never enough room on a business card to answer all the questions that someone may need to ask you at 10pm
  • Because there are only so many times that you can answer the same questions, like how long you have been in business and what your hourly rates are
  • Because some people prefer to send emails to the address that they find there, rather than picking up the phone
  • Allows you to connect and have one-on-one conversations with many different people. Some of whom are prospective clients
  • Carries your voice around the world, and you never know from which country the next big opportunity is going to come from
  • Lets you let friends and business partners know what is going on in your world
  • Enables you to share your expertise and experience in your field
  • Gives you an opportunity to give your business presentation a personal touch

    “Got another reason?” How about millions of reasons.
    How about a 24 hours online tool to build brand consciousness, convey news and announcements, describe corporate policies. And we’re still talking basic HTML.
    How about adopting web 2.0 tools to enhance communication with customers and to obtain tons of statistical data about usage and customer trends.
