Succeeding in business is
getting harder and harder. If you are determined to
succeed in your business, then there is no question…you
need a website…you need it NOW…and here’s why:
1. YOUR WEBSITE
WILL GIVE YOU THE GREATEST ROI (return on investment)
of any other marketing media available.
(CA) spent $5,000 on their website design, $2,800 on the
online processing portion and $80/month on hosting. They
had a hard time justifying the expense in the beginning,
but after just 90 days, the revenue from their website
was EQUAL to that of the retail store. By the end of the
first year, their website was generating 3X that of the
2. YOUR WEBSITE WILL CUT YOUR
MARKETING/ADVERTISING BUDGET considerably and
give you a higher return on your marketing dollars.
- Most people do not
even use the yellow pages anymore. They go to the online
yellow pages and search engines. They are faster, easier
and much more informative/current. Miracle Marketing
Network.com paid $6,000/Year advertising in the yellow
pages with a 3X5 ad. Their website Design and Hosting
was ½ of their budget and they receive 2X more calls.
3. YOUR WEBSITE WILL PROTECT YOUR
INVESTMENT in your company in the event of a
natural/organized/accidental disaster. More inexpensive
than hurricane/tornado/flood insurance AND your website
generates revenue at the same time!
- As a repercussion of
the September 11 tragedy, approximately 4,319 New York
Companies went out of business. Many could have been
saved if they had had a web presence. With a website
they would have been able to communicate with their
customers/clients & they would have been able to
continue to generate revenue from the sale of their
products & services online until they could re-establish
a physical presence.
4. YOUR WEBSITE IS AN INEXPENSIVE, FULL
COLOR BROCHURE…and any aspect of it can be
changed in seconds for a very minute cost.
- Print Brochures are
outrageously expensive and if there are any copy errors
after it has gone to print, you will pay full price to
have them re-printed. Making a change on your website is
just as easy and quick as cutting & pasting in word.
5. YOUR WEBSITE IS A TAX DEDUCTIBLE
ADVERTISING EXPENSE…AND IT WILL DO MUCH MORE THAN
ADVERTISE FOR YOU
- You can use your
website to distribute/display/sell products, services,
flyers, newsletters, coupons, bulletin boards, menus,
calendars of events, documents, press releases, etc…
Your website can also gather important statistics about
6. YOUR WEBSITE WILL LEVEL THE PLAYING
FIELD & CREATE GREATER CREDIBILITY, enabling
the small business to compete better with larger
- You will be able to
express your goals, values, visions and beliefs better
than your larger competitors. You can make your company
look very large with the use of alias e-mail addresses.
You will be able to automatically respond to your
clients/customers making them feel like you are giving
them special attention.
7. YOUR WEBSITE WILL ENABLE YOU TO DO
BUSINESS WITH A WORLDWIDE MARKET You are no
longer limited to your local market. You do not want to be
the only one waiting on a local market to respond in a
global economy. Even if you can only do business in your
local area…you still have a worldwide market.
- Consider this: Joe
lives in New York and owns rental properties in Florida.
When he needs a contractor or property manager, he jumps
online, finds what he needs, they send him a picture
after completion and he pays them online. He NEVER moved
from his living room! This is how people are doing
business today. If you are not online, these shoppers
will not know that you exist and they will contract with
8. YOUR WEBSITE WILL GIVE YOU THE
COMPETITIVE EDGE that you will need if you
intend to survive in business during the next millennium.
You will be able to recapture your market share from the
competitors who have been snatching it from you. Your
website will ensure your success in business tomorrow!
- If you do not use the
Internet yourself, don’t be fooled. Your customers and
clients do! Your competitors ARE online and they are
getting ahead of you in the learning curve and stealing
YOUR market. You cannot afford to wait another minute.
Research shows that for each day that you are not online
your competitor gets 30 days ahead of you. They are
taking money out of your pocket, and they are learning
more about online media each day. The longer you put
this off, the longer it is going to take you to catch
up! It is critical to get online NOW and get going
through this curve!
9. YOUR WEBSITE WILL ENABLE YOUR
STOREFRONT TO BE OPEN 24/7
- People are too busy
during the day to shop the way they used to. Research
shows that they go online AFTER the dinner hour (after
you are closed) to find the products and/or services
that they need. Your website will do business 24/7 with
this market. If you do not have a presence, they do not
even know that you exist, so you can expect to lose them
to your competitor because you are not even there for
them to choose from.
10. YOUR WEBSITE IS A 24/7 EMPLOYEE THAT
CAN ELIMINATE A HUGE PORTION OF YOUR OVERHEAD
- Your website is not on
the payroll & does not need benefits or vacations. You
do not have to pay taxes or workman’s comp on it. It is
never sick or late & it is always doing business on a
professional level. It can answer frequently asked
questions so your employees can stay focused on your
core business instead of spending hours on the phone
answering the same questions day in and day out (saves
your phone bill!). It can auto respond to your
clients/customers and you can e-mail them through your
site FREE (cuts mailing costs). Sections of your site
can be password protected so that only your employees
can access it. Your website can greatly aid your HR
- BabyCenter.com made $6
million in their first 6 months online (avg. age of

½ million-dollar account after only one month online
