If you run a business and you still don’t have a website or have a lousy website that doesn’t do any good to your business, 2020 is the year when you must have a website.
In this blog post, I have shared 5 good reasons for you to create a website in 2020.
Let’s get started!
#1 Build a website to reach your customers
If you run a small business and keep thinking how to grow your sales by reaching the maximum amount of potential customers, give a serious thought to build a website this year.
A website can not only help you to target your local customers, but it can also add wings to your small business so that you can grow worldwide.
Today, if you have a small business in Singapore and wish to get grow your sales in other countries like USA or UK, it’s very much possible. With the help of a website, you can make your local brand a global identity.
So, if you need more customers and more sales, get a website.
#2 Build a website to boost trust
If you don’t have a website today, your potential customers may not trust you.
Simply because most of your competitors may have their websites already. A company or business without any website is considered as outdated and unreliable.
When you build a website, you gain trust of your customers by:
- Showcasing your existing customers’ reviews.
- Describing about your company, services and products.
- Mentioning your contact details.
- Enabling your customers to send you enquiry anytime.
#3 Build a website to sell your services
There is no better & affordable way these days to sell your services & products efficiently.
If you hire marketing & sales people to sell your products, it may cost you fortune. But with the help of a website, you can promote & sell your products at much lower price.
Why it is affordable to sell with a website?
Firstly, the cost to develop a website is very affordable. You can easily hire a website developer who can build your corporate website for as low as $1000 and an e-commerce store for as low as $2500.
Not only website development cost, but marketing & advertising your products through your website is also affordable as compared to the traditional methods of marketing like TV, print media etc.
#4 Build a website to get & manage leads
A website doesn’t have to be static. With the help of your web developer, you can add a lot of features to it.
For instance, if you want your website to have a CRM where you can manage all of your marketing leads, it’s possible.
If you have used WordPress to build your website, then you can add several free plugins to your website that will make the process of lead generation & its management much easier.
