WHY YOU NEED A WEB SITE

Customers expect every reputable business to have a web site, no matter what industry they are in. Your competitors probably have a web site, can you afford not to?

Your customers want to be able to check your store hours, locations, products, pricing, and current promotions online without having to call you during business hours.

Studies show that people are more likely to shop at a store that provides information online, even if it doesn't sell directly from its web site.

Your customers want to know that you can meet their needs. A web site shows that you are willing to do business on their terms. And where else can you advertise your products to the world for only R150 pm? We can’t even advertise in the local newspaper for so little.

Advantages of a web site

  • Your Business is Open to the World 24/7, 365 Days a Year
  • It's Your Online Brochure / Catalogue That Can Be Changed at Anytime
    A web site is easier, cheaper and quicker to update than print material.
  • Reach New Markets with a Global Audience
    On the Internet; you aren't that local little business anymore. You have the potential to be seen by millions across the globe.
  • Improved Customer Service
    Online forms can be used to allow customers to request quotations or ask further information. Save costs by allowing users to download important documents.
  • Present a Professional Image
    For a small business, a well-designed web site is a great way of instilling confidence and looking bigger than you actually are. In this day in age, customers assume that you already have a web site. By now, your primary competitors probably already have a presence on the Internet. Shouldn't you?
