Even if you never use the internet, MOST of your customers do. In early 2005, Google announced it had over 9 Billion pages in its index. Common sense should tell us that there must be something to this internet marketing!
By having even a simple, informative website about you, your product or service, you open an instant, FREE door to perspective clientele that you never had before. This is the digital information age. The purpose of the website is to give yourself a billboard in it. Even the simplest website can:
Instant Access to your business Collateral- Provide Downloadable forms, price lists, sale sheets and brochures to people researching a purchase. House a forum via email to quickly and easily answer questions about your goods and services.
Reduce Costs- A strong enough web presence can eliminate many print advertising and other campaign costs. Even on the most rigourous web campaigns, the advertising cost per customer is far, far less by comparison.
Give People What They Are Looking For- More and more people research a company or product online before face to face contact. Today people expect to find a web site for a company with at the very least further information on services or products.
Always On- Information about your company is available 24/7, locally, nationally, and globally at no extra cost. Imagine the cost of a direct mail piece through the post office to every address in the world with a computer!
Cost Effective- Can easily be the most cost effective advertising and marketing medium of communication to existing and potential customers.
Showcase What You Do Best- If your product and service is quality and you're a one person operation, your website can focus on your business and open the door to people who might not be thinking of a smaller business for their needs.
