Why a business needs a website

As a society, we have moved at a great speed in technological advancement. So much so that reports of the death of the high street and physical retail space are increasing, and businesses are quickly adapting by moving online.

This is even more so the case following the global pandemic, in which businesses were largely operating from the vicinity of a worker’s own bedroom. The demand for instant gratification from acquiring products and services has made people across the UK used to the convenience of the here and now.

Businesses are now ultimately faced with the decision to modernise or die. The expectations of consumers have risen exponentially, making it critical for businesses to review their marketing strategies, including the significant improvement of the quality and quantity of website content.

Expectations are not only growing, but they are changing, meaning that the aesthetic of your website, alongside the content, must be adapted to modern trends which captivate your target audience.

A stand-out website helps a business, online or hybrid, build credibility. Heightened credibility and reputation online can ultimately attract more consumers, ultimately increasing sales: every business end goal.

Websites provide your business with increased credibility through the presentation of professionalism and accessibility.

Websites are a fundamental asset to building brand awareness and creating your niche in a competitive market.

Websites provide a starting ground and a base for consumers, enabling an opportunity for you to build long-lasting relationships with your audience and providing them with reassurance to trust your business.

The accessibility of a website provides consumers with the opportunity to explore your business long after you clock out – the internet has no closing time nor a set location. As a result, your website is always there even when you are not.

Your products or services are being constantly marketed without your direct involvement which makes for incredibly cost-effective marketing.

Your website provides visitors with extensive information regarding your company, advertising your reputation, capabilities, and generating sales throughout the day. This is significant to increasing your customer reach, enabling the growth of your target demographic beyond your specific location, even globally.

Ultimately, having a stand-out and extensive website is not only beneficial, but essential to the survival of your business.

The increasing demand from consumers means that there is not just a desire for, but an expectation that a legitimate company has a website alongside social media accounts. Without this, businesses are faced with negative responses and uncertainty from customers, who may not perceive your business to be competent, or in the worst-cases, the perception that your business is an online scam.

Therefore, improving your customers experience upon finding and using your company avoids this uncertainty and increases the likelihood of sales. An effective website allows for customers to find answers to simple questions they may have, reducing the direct contact with you and the consumer whilst maintaining a solid reputation.

This is not only a positive for the consumer, who doesn’t have to chase the company directly for answers but takes the workload off yourself and staff which can improve productivity elsewhere.

Understanding the importance of a website is the first step, but building one is an entirely different thing.

We acknowledge the competition out there is fierce, with brand awareness being a fundamental aspect of a thriving business.

As a small business or start-up, improving familiarity and trust amongst consumers is everything. Where your products and services may be fantastic, perhaps your ability to create an original, contemporary website is not.

As specialists, our company can work alongside yours to ensure that your vision is fulfilled for your brand, to not only look good but generate more sales to an increased target audience.

Website optimisation goes beyond mere aesthetics but involves the optimisation of search engines, which requires a level of research and expertise, taking time away from you which you may not have.

It may feel like a big expense for a small business to take on, but if you are reading this post, rest assured investing in the development of a quality website is worth it.
