Avoid Losing Sales Now Why Go Online if You’re Local? 10 Reasons to be Online

Avoid Losing Sales Now

A recent ACNielsen survey of businesses with websites found that websites:

* Helped 58% of small businesses grow or expand
* Made 51% of small businesses more profitable, and
* Reduced costs at 49% of small businesses surveyed. – ACNielsen 2004

The old excuse of “my business does not need a website” no longer works.

No matter what your industry – Someone like you, somewhere uses their websites to make their business more money daily:
* Service
* Professional
* Manufacturer
* Retail / eCommerce
* Wholesale / Network Distributor
* Artwork and Crafts

Hundreds of small businesses were recently surveyed to see what obstacles they encountered in getting websites and doing business online.

The survey revealed that close to half thought their goods, services and/or location were “inappropriate” for a website. Almost a third thought they had to give up their face-to-face business approach, and several others were worried about security and costs.

The truth is that if a website was easy, affordable and helped you make money, you would get one, right? Of course you would! That's just good business sense. We can help you really understand all the ways a website can help make your business sales sky-rocket – even if you don't do business online!

A website can help your business make money in many ways:
* Sell products online.
* Drive visitors to your offline store.
* Save you money by providing customer support.
* Gather leads so you can follow up with interested buyers.
* Support your offline sales process by giving you extra credibility to close the sale.


Why Go Online if You’re Local?

Simply – you MUST go online, especially if you're local. And the most important thing is to be first or one of the first in your market to have a web presence.

Why do I have to be first?
Two Reasons:
One – as more of your competitors get internet savvy, you won't be standing out from the crowd anymore.
Two – more and more homes get online and more and more are looking for local shopping and services options. Who do you want them to find? You or your competitor.

According to statistics and various analysts in the field, any business that's not equipped to effectively market on the Internet will go out of business within the next 2-5 years. Please, I beg of you, don't become one of those statistics.

But, you argue – my business isn't suited to the internet –

A website can be a huge benefit to your business, whether or not you sell online.

A little mistake that cost a plumber $3000
- you are probably making it too!
If you don't think you need a website, you are probably like John or Suzy.

John's two-truck plumbing business lost a $3000 contract because the customer felt more comfortable getting the job done by a competitor after seeing pictures of their quality work and certifications on their website.

Suzy sells homemade candles. She just discovered her neighbor sells 16 more candles than she does each week, all through the Internet and at double the price .

Both John and Suzy are missing ready opportunities because they don't have websites for their businesses.

10 years ago a website was considered an expensive luxury item that only leading businesses needed to have.

Today, websites are affordable and are expected by your customers, just like they expect you to have a business card and a fax machine.
