time someone wants to know your hours, location, directions,
or any other details about your company, they can get
it without disturbing you.
Low staffing costs. When you have a web site,
you can offer your products and services without hiring
any extra employees. You won't have to spend any resources
on compensating or insuring your new staff members and
still be able to maintain the same level of sales and
Gain thousands new customers. Because anyone
in the world can see your web site, you will gain customers
from other states and countries while you are putting
in the same amount of effort and money.
Create an image of a well established company.
The Internet is a great medium through which you can
create any image of yourself you want. It is all in
your hands: design a professional web site, add helpful
content, and your company will immediately take a step
up in the image it represents. No matter how small your
business is, with the right tools and a great desire
you can make it look like a corporation on the Web!
Save on postage and printing costs. Think of
how many cards you mail out to let customers know about
your sale. All of that can be eliminated by putting
the sale information on your web site and inviting your
customers to visit it. You can collect your customers'
E-Mail addresses and keep in touch with them about special
events in your store via E-Mail.
Unlimited advertisement. If you ever advertised
in a local newspaper, you know the costs. You are being
charged per line, per inch, and per color. On the Web,
there is no limit to how much you can put. You can add
pictures, articles, newsletters, rates, product images
and so much more! With just one web site, you can have
almost unlimited advertisement for the same low monthly
cost (under $25 a month!)
Improve communications. If you have employees
or suppliers, your web site is the best way to communicate
between you and them. Changes take effect as soon as
you post them on the Web, and everyone can see updated
information without having to wait for a new database
of products, and without contacting you directly.
Impeccable customer service. This is a dream
of any entrepreneur: "buy my product and leave
me alone". By this I mean that business owners
do not like to spend time explaining to customers how
to use the product, how to install it, troubleshoot
it, clean it, move it, turn it, and whatever else can
be done to a purchased item.
