Should your business be on the Internet?

There are really only two reasons for a business to have a web site:

  1. You want sell products or services via the internet.
  2. You want to advertise or provide information about your company.

Why use the internet?

  • Your web site will provide information and sales 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

  • Over 190 million people use the internet now and that number is growing more than 65,000 new people each day. When these people visit your web site, they are specifically visiting your site for information and possibly sales from your company.

  • In the United States alone, there are 2,000 new Internet users per hour. An Internet population of 19 million in 1997 has mushroomed to well over 100 million today.

  • Internet advertising is much less than the cost of conventional advertising, especially for what you get.

  • Provides a lot more information than a standard print ad

  • You can use pictures, audio and video to help sell your products or services.

  • Maps & directions can more easily be provided.

  • Provide background information on your company, sales people or anything you want.

  • Coupled with e-mail can provide a convenient means of communication between potential customers and you.

  • You can reduce your print/mailing costs by having people visit your web site instead

  • E-Commerce can allow you to sell to customers throughout the world, not just in your own backyard.

  • Web sites can be set up to answer questions and provide advice on how to use your products most effectively.

This list can go on and on as more uses are found for the internet. I stand ready to help you get the most out of your web site.  Whatever you want the site to be is what I will make it.
