Do I really need a website?
Our clients often have the same kind of questions when it comes to online presence…
- Is it still relevant to have a website?
- I have a small business…Do I really need a website?
- I have Instagram, isn’t that enough?
- Isn’t it too expensive to create a website?
Having a website is a super powerful marketing tool. It can help you get more leads, gain a competitive advantage, increase sales, enhance your branding and improve your customer service.
Have a look at these 5 reasons why you need a website.
It makes you look professional
Your website is your number one marketing asset! Consumers think a website makes your business more credible than companies who only have social media profiles. Next to that, when you have your own website, you can create a branded email address, which also adds professionalism to your communication.
A website is no longer difficult to manage
When we develop a website in WordPress, we make sure that the back-office is always user-friendly for our clients. We want our clients to be able to change or add things to their website without our help. So after we developed the website, we give them a training of half a day to explain them how everything works. And ofcourse, we are always available if there are any questions afterwards.
It expands your market
Having a website allows you to break through the geographical barriers. It will help you to target people you might not target in your physical shop. Online sales were on the rise even before COVID-19, but now it’s more important than ever to also have an online presence/shop.
People are searching for you online
97% of people go online to find something, and 90% of online experiences begin with a search engine. People will search for something on Google, on Bing…Which means, we recommend you to invest in a website with SEO (search engine optimization), so that when a person is searching for something specific, he or she will see your business in his/her search results.
Your website belongs to you
You might already have a Facebook page and an Instagram account, so why even considering having a website? Well time changes and algorithms too…What’s working today, might not work tomorrow. If you have a website, YOU can control what you want the people to see. You decide which content you want to post, which pictures etc…because it belongs to you.
