Over the past decade, the internet has evolved faster and superior to most advertising avenues. Even faster than Superman…after he found out…well…that he was Superman. We discuss the five reasons why we feel all businesses should have a web presence. Especially local businesses in Michigan!
First, potential clients can quickly and easily lean all about your company, products, and services by checking out your website. Why spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on print media, when you can have a digital brochure that can be updated on the fly? A website can easily reflect current events, special promotions, and profitable services. Ideally, your site should be a launch-pad to display and promote your incredible work.
A Website Is An Extension of Your Brand And Bolsters Your Credibility
Second, a website can increase your local directory listings and help you climb the search engine results. Sites with lots of fresh content are more relevant than those without. Your site is an extension of your brand, and there are effective marketing strategies to leverage your offerings online.
Third, increased exposure online will increase your prospects for new business. There are hundreds of local consumers, within your “neck of the woods,” who search the web every day. Unless you are selling spare parts for the NASA space shuttle, consumers are most likely looking for businesses like yours. Your website can broadcast hours of operation, location maps, driving directions, contact details, and much more.
Forth, a professional website that is well presented, automatically can attach a positive image, gives you instant credibility, and consumers will want to do business with you. Who would you choose – a company with an impressive website or without a website?
Finally, your website is a great referral strategy. Many satisfied customers often refer your business without you knowing about it. Put your site on auto-pilot, ready to take on new potential customers. By posting relevant content, highlighting your community involvement, and showcasing your products and services – you are sure to be one up on your competition!
