Here are our top reasons why your business needs a website in 2022



Why Your Business Needs a Website

With the rise of social media, we have noticed some businesses don't have a website anymore and instead use a facebook page or just their Google Business Profile listing.

We don't think this is a good idea. Feedback from our web design clients over the last 16 years has told us that having a website is still very important to their business.

Here are our top reasons why having a website is necessary for business:

You are in Control
Facebook and other social media platforms can change your business page when they want. They may decide to run ads for your competitors alongside your content.

Only with a website are you in full control of the content and how that it will displayed.

Buyers May Not be Able to Find Your Business
More and more consumers and businesses research their suppliers online as part of their decision making process, so continuing to not have a website may mean you are missing out on potential business opportunities.

Buyers Expect a Business to Have A Website. It Builds Trust
It also provides the opportunity to showcase your core values / expertise and say why new customers should select you over your competitors. It also provides a mechanism to offer answers to frequently asked questions, helping with customer service and saving you time.

Opens New Markets
It's an easier way to target new markets and allows you to promote your services to a wider geographic area.

Service Customers 24/7
Customers may be looking to purchase outside of your regular office hours. As a website is available 24/7, customers potentially don't need to wait until you are available to find out about your services or make an initial enquiry

Provides Customers More Options to Start the Purchasing Process
If your products / services can be sold online, customers can view products, place orders and make payments online.
