On several instances, we have found ourselves searching the internet for businesses we think should have a website so as we learn more about them but, to our surprise, we cant find them and we are left with no option but to thumb through the ‘yellow page.’
As a business, a website is largely part of your consistence and success, hence a must to have one. The need to advertise and ultimately reach out to customers and prospects searching online is achieved. Further, there are no rules unto how your website should be, look or feel as creating one is an easy, cost effective, manageable and inexpensive venture, especially if you use a free web builder.
In this article, I will outline the major merits of a good website, and how that will help you understand why having an online presence is essential.
1. Stand Out.
Competition is inevitable. Sooner than later, competition will catch up with your business, and a website is a perfect starting point on how to beat and stand off your competitors. ‘How good are there websites?’ ‘Do they have websites at all??’ With these simple questions in mind, you can gain a large market share and wip out your winners.
2. Save Money
Placing advertisements in newspapers, bulletins, magazines and all other traditional offline platforms generally costs way more than placing your advertisements online. If running on your own website, your ads will be free of charge. Even if your website is merely just a page where your target audience read more about you, grab your contacts and dial you in real time, you should see a huge money serving when comparing to prints ads.
3. Create elite connections
With up to scratch internet security in place, not only can your website support secure online payments, you can further exchange other vital information safely with your target audience, amongest management. Passwords, User Roles and Capabilities to mention a few are just some of the measures you can put in place to ensure restricted access and usage of privileged data and website areas.
4. Real Time Based Feedback

A website is your online business card. You will not always have the opportunity to face-to-face present and explain what products and services you offer. But with your own ‘https://rodger.rmi.one‘ and ‘custom emails’ bearing your business brand name, ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ for instance, it would allow your target audience to learn more about you in the comfort of there zone, while selling what you offer..
