Its an often asked question, but one with a very simple answer, YES.
Any business in todays market is losing out on potential sales by not having a website, the reasons are very plain. We all know how rapid the growth of the internet has been, and it has carried online sales with it. In 2010 Australians spent $29 billion in online sales, $29 billion, up from $9 billion in 2006, that's rapid growth! The projected increase is a doubling of online sales by 2015, doubling! Four out of every five Australians shop online, and that is an Australian government statistic!
But forget the statistics, you just need to look at the people around you now. Newspapers, yellow pages or television play a very poor second to hopping onto a computer and googling, everyone does it, and they may just be looking for what YOU sell! We can't make any promises about increased sales from going online, but one thing we can promise you is that by not having a website, your online sales will be zero!
Another great thing about the internet is that it is a terrific business leveller. With a good looking, functional website, an owner/operator can look the same as a large business employing hundreds. There is virtually nothing that can't be sold over the internet, so even if you think your product or service is not suitable, think again. Remember if any of your competitors have a website, you're losing sales to them! So, unless you want to risk losing potential sales, you need to act now! What to do next?? Give us a call!
