Why Local Service Companies Should Have a Website

The Internet is being used by local service business to improve sales today. Sales are improved because a website gives a company more credibility and in some cases generates leads.

Improving Credibility with a Website
The more a prospect can feel like they know you, the more comfortable they will be to calling you for assistance. Most yellow page and other ads only give a limited amount of space to share information with the prospect. An Internet website allows you (or your competition) to easily and cost effectively share this information.

Websites that help a prospect feel comfortable calling a local service business often include: a description of the products and services you offer, what makes you different from similar companies, and testimonials from past clients.

Websites don't need to be fancy or flashy. Most people prefer the simple informative websites that makes it easy to find the information they're seeking.

You can direct people to your website by publishing it's address everywhere (yellow page ads, truck signs, uniforms, business cards, letterhead, invoices, etc).

Summary
If you can direct prospects to a nice website, you'll have more credibility and therefore orders from them.

Generating Leads with a Website
When Americans need information, 65% of them go online to an Internet search engine before going to the yellow pages or any other median. This is amazing when you consider the Internet browser in its current form was introduced 10 years ago in 1995.

Adding "Cincinnati" to a search will give you information about jobs, real estate, hotels, used cars, etc in the Cincinnati area. Over time, people will be looking for Cincinnati electrical contractor, Cincinnati muffler repair, etc on the Internet. Google has also been testing local search functionality for over a year. When this technology is generally available, local searching will increase even more.

There may or may not be people looking for your business in your area today. A website optimization company can look at the numbers for your industry in your area and tell you if people are looking for you or not.

Summary
People may or may not be looking for your business locally on the Internet today? They will in the future. It makes sense to put a quality website in place for credibility today. It will then be in place for when people start looking for your specialty online in the future.
