1. Make A Positive First Impression
Consumers have gotten savvier and more determined to find a good service and a
knockout deal. Rather than visiting store after store or calling one service and then another,
people are taking to the Internet to find out all they can on a business, good or service.

Chances are many of your customers will first learn about your business from visiting your
site, which then becomes your first opportunity to make a lasting, positive impression.
A site that looks clean and is easy to navigate makes a big difference with consumers
while a confusing one will drive them away.
Even if you’re not selling your good or service online, a webpage will direct readers
looking to contact you, which then lead us to…
2. Appear more professional
A well-designed website will make your business appear more professional. In fact,
a well-considered website can fool customers into thinking your business is larger than
it is and could even level the playing-field between your business and its more established
3. Your Top Competitor Has A Website
If you are in direct competition with another business that has a website, they have a clear
advantage - especially if they are adequately marketing their website. A website is a great
way to level the playing field.
4. "Just Google It"
More than ever before, people are turning away from traditional means of finding information
and looking online, especially by way of mobile devices. Your business should be at their
fingertips when they look in the search engines.
5. IT PROVIDES A MEDIUM ON WHICH TO SHOWCASE YOUR WORK
No matter what type of business you’re in, a website is a great place to showcase your work.
By including a portfolio or image gallery, as well as testimonials about your work, you can
demonstrate what makes your business unique.
6. A WEBSITE SAVES YOU TIME
Providing information to your customers takes time, whether it’s on the phone, face-to-face,
in a brochure, or in emails. With an online catalogue you can provide lots of information
about your products and services. Once your website is up and running, it is available to
your customers indefinitely, saving you time. And what is time? Time is money!
7. WEBSITES ARE GREAT ADVERTISING.
Whatever you're advertising – services, products or just yourself – a website is a great way
to do it. Every other kind of advertising going costs a premium, especially if you want to
target a specific kind of person, and there's no guarantee that they're paying attention.
Websites are like brochures that are free to reproduce, interactive, and quickly distributed to
people who are already looking for them. No advertising medium even comes close to the
ease-of-use and effectiveness of a website.
8. Reachable Anywhere
The days of the phone book have long since passed and the browser is increasingly losing
its users. Not all customers are sitting at home searching for a business on their laptops.
Many are on the go, searching for a product or service on their phone or tablet, and if they
can’t find you, then they’ll go to the person they can find: your competitor.
A responsive design site allows users to quickly pull up your information and get in contact
with you wherever they are. These sites are designed to adjust to any screen size, whether
it’s a browser, tablet or phone. Consumers won’t miss out on your important information.
