2. Your competitors already have websites.
All businesses are in competition with other businesses and if they have a website and you don’t then they have a clear advantage over you. Your potential customers could be looking for exactly the product or service you can supply, but can’t find any information on you when they look online. A website is a great way to level the playing field and stop sending your customers to your competitors.
3. Everyone ‘searches’ these days
More than ever before, people are turning away from traditional ways of finding information and looking online. Written directories are becoming less popular and the internet has become the tool of choice when it comes to finding information. Millions of users in all age groups now search online for their needs and your business website should be one of the things they’re looking for.
4. Improve customer confidence & Build your image.
With a professional website you will improve your overall impression to customers and people develop a greater sense of confidence in companies that have a solid online presence. As well as information on the products or services you’re selling you can also include pages about your company itself, the staff, your future plans, and various ways that customers can contact or visit your premises.
5. Save money on Printing and Postage
Businesses spend a great deal of money printing leaflets and brochures promoting their companies and another small fortune just to send them out in the post. Having your own website can slash those costs considerably, plus you can keep the site updated with the very latest information instantly and even email your customers with special offers and promotions.
6. Low cost advertising
Many companies find advertising in local newspapers is extremely expensive and not cost effective, but with your own website you can cut those costs by placing smaller advertisements with information on how people can visit your website to see your full product range. There is only so much you can say in even a full page printed advert, but on your website you can add all the information they need to see - and your site is available at any time of day for the lowest cost to you. The expensive advert you placed in last week’s newspaper is wrapping a bag of chips this week.
7. Websites get you more sales.
Having a website significantly improves your customer numbers no matter what services or products you offer. They may have found your site via an advert, a link from another website or just an online search - but every visitor to your website is a potential customer, and when they arrive looking for a certain product or service they may also see something new they didn’t know you offered - another potential sale. More potential customers equals more potential sales.
8. A local website can reach the World.
Most small local businesses are only able to promote themselves in their own Town or immediate area. With a website, you can expand your territory to market yourself in a much wider area - in fact the whole World if you require. The internet is truly global and your website can be seen by anyone, anywhere.
9. Customer Services and communication
Consider including a ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ section on your website with answers to common questions, assistance and advice on specific products or services, and include a variety of ways in which you can be contacted - telephone, fax, email etc. Your customers will appreciate this depth of information and you will also save time having to explain your products to customers before they make a commitment to buy from you.

so read on below ...
1. A website never sleeps.
A website will make your business appear open to potential customers 24 hours a day,
7 days a week, 365 days a year.
In fact you’ll probably get more visitors through your ‘website doors’ in the evenings because that is when most users surf the net looking for information. Those website visitors could easily become real life visitors tomorrow.
