Why do you need a website?

So you might be asking yourself, why you need a website.

We understand the dilemma:

– Your business has done ok so far without it
– You don’t have the time or knowledge to create one
– You fear that it will cost you thousands of pounds to have one created for you.

First things first, let’s take a look at why it is important for you to have a website.

1. Credibility

Today’s marketplace is a world of research and reviews. Credibility and trust are huge factors in decision making. When somebody is looking for a product or a service, they will usually take to the internet to search for reviews and recommendations. Once they have found your business, the first place they are likely to look is for your website.

If they can’t find a website, then this could ring alarm bells for a lot of people.

Your business is successful and you have lots of very happy customers, but without a website to back that up and show people who you are and what you do, they might not know!

The risk of that, is that your potential customers might just move on to a different business that does have a website and not look back.

A website will provide a place that your customers can look through and see all of the great work you do and what your previous customers think of your work. It gives them the trust that you will be able to help them too!

 

2. Brand Awareness

You might not think of your business as a brand, but it most definitely is! Even if the business is just you, you are the brand!

To build awareness of your brand, you need a platform that you can point people to online. If you don’t have a website in this day and age, it will appear to the online marketplace as though you don’t even exist at all – and that is definitely not what we want!

A website is just one tool in the mission for brand awareness, but the most important one of the lot! Pairing your website with a presence on social media will undoubtedly increase the awareness of your brand.

 

3. Increased Revenue.

The more people are able to find you online, the less customers you will lose to your competitors. In a recent study by .uk it is estimated that within the trade sector alone, a business could make an additional £16k revenue per year purely by having a good website – some even up to £24k more!

If you are able to capture just a fraction of the customers that would otherwise look elsewhere – how much could that be worth!?

What's next?

So now that we have established that a website can help to grow your business revenue and increase the number of customers coming to your door – how do you go about getting yourself a website that isn’t going to cost you thousands of pounds?

Well you could, of course, try one of the many DIY website builders that are available. Wix, Squarespace, Shopify, just to name a few.

BUT – you are already a very busy person. You want to spend your free time with your family and friends (once we are allowed to again!). You want to be able to watch the footie or a film in the evening. You want to have a date night with your significant other. Not be spending hours on end sat in front of a computer trying to figure out how to navigate the complex world of page builders, or how to make your business stand out online in a huge market of competition, only to end up with something a bit mediocre.

I can hear you thinking – but websites are expensive – It is going to cost thousands of pound to get it set up!
