Why do I Need a Website?

  • Cost Effective Advertising.
  • Online selling.
  • Increased geopgraphic range.
  • Wider customer base.
  • Efficient marketing.
  • Improved customer support.
  • Succesful market research.
  • Customer feedback.

Just a few of the reasons why your business or organisation, however small, can benefit from having a professional web presence.

Your web site can be viewed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by anyone with a connection to the internet, anywhere in the World. With more and more people using the internet as their main method of researching and obtaining goods and services this is a potential market you can't afford to ignore. In fact, many people obtain nearly all of the goods and services they need almost exclusively from the internet. This means that if you don't have a web site, you are losing business to those forward thinking companies that do.

A website can be many things. In its simplest form it could be a single page advertisement, similar to one you would print in a newspaper or magazine, except that it would be available all day every day. A more useful website would consist of a few pages describing your business / organisation and informing potential customers of the products or services you offer. This can be coupled with contact information and a direct e-mail link so that your customers can easily request more information should they need it. More complex sites can contain an unlimited amount of additional information, can have complete online catalogues of the products you offer and even allow customers to order and purchase products from you online.

Some websites can even offer facilities and functionality that are not available via any other medium. A well designed website brings customers to you and brings you closer to your customers, opening up new opportunities for your business and providing your customers with the service they deserve. It is an ideal way of enhancing the service you provide.
