The digital age is here and it's not going anywhere.
With the continuing rise of the internet's influence on the way our world works and how it connects people each and every day, it's hard to imagine a world without it.
Which is just one of the many reason that your business should have its own website. You practically can't operate successfully in today's market without a website for your business.
In fact, according to a research conducted in 2016 by Forbes Insights, a large majority of customers, 82% in fact, do research on a company online before they decide to make a purchase from them.
It's more important than ever to have your own website for your industry or small business.
Today, we've got four great reasons for you to choose to build your website with the friendly experts at Atwill Media.
The location of your store makes all the difference when it comes to how much business you get each day. Place your storefront on a busy city street, and you're bound to get more exposure and foot traffic. Place it in a low traffic area, however, and you'll have a harder time getting your name out there and earning more business.
A website works in the same way. Think of your website as a piece of rich, online real estate. When you expose your business to millions of internet users, the property value of your business goes up.
You want to get your business in front of as many eyes as you can. With Atwill Media's team of experts working to optimize your website and increase your search engine rankings, you can be certain you'll get the optimal amount of online exposure.
Are you looking for a way to increase your brand awareness? What better way to do it than by placing yourself online to be discovered by thousands, or even millions, of internet users.
Your website works similar to the traditional way of advertising on billboards.
Think of people on the internet as cars driving down a highway. When a car passes a billboard, most people will glance over at the billboard to see what is says. That's the intended result of having a billboard ad.
Your website works in a similar fashion. When people are browsing the internet, looking for a plumber to fix their toilet leak, or a mechanic to fix their car, they are browsing through hundreds of other websites. They use Google and other search engines to find the right business.
A website is the best way to ensure that they find you and your business, and choose to use your services instead of your competitors. Don't miss out on business opportunities due to people not knowing your business exists!
Are you looking to sell your products online? Are you wanting to supplement your in-store inventory with an online store, or move to completely online business model? Our websites have some great ecommerce solutions for you.
There's a reason that companies like Amazon and Walmart are doing so well in the digital age: ecommerce. Nowadays, many shoppers are looking for the convenience of buying products from the comfort of their home, using a cellphone, computer, or tablet. They would much rather buy products online than have to travel to an actual store to make a purchase.
Atwill Media has a great set of ecommerce tools available at your fingertips to make selling online easy and convenient, as it should be.
You have a phone number for your business, and you might even have an email address that customers can contact if they have a question or need help solving a problem. But is that information easy to find and out in the open for anyone to see?
A website makes it easy to put all of your contact information in one place, so customers can always contact you with any questions they may have. Every Atwill Media website comes with a dedicated Contact Us page, where customers can find important information, such as your phone number, address, store hours, and more.
We even have a Reviews page, where customers can leave you a review and let you know how they think you're doing. It's a great way to connect to customers in ways that you may not have been able to before you had a website.
A website is much more than just a fad these days; it's one of the best ways for you to increase awareness of your business, connect with your customers, and earn you more business.
