Does a Website increase your chances of winning new business? Yes! Your website impacts both your brand image and your bottom line. Here is the fundamental question that we as business owners and marketers ask ourselves, does it really matter? After all a website isn’t really a tangible demonstration of your organization. Your clients don’t go and open the doors to your website for a walk inside. They don’t interact with the cashier or speak with an expert. So does it matter?! Yes. Here’s why. Your website does something no physical location can do; it travels to your customer. In today’s marketplace consumers almost unequivocally visit your site first to learn more about you, before they pick up the phone and call, or get in their car and drive. And here’s the important part: •

• •

75% of users admit to making judgments about a company’s creditability based on that company’s website design. 53% of consumers use it to research products and prices. 72% of consumers are more likely to shop with a business with a website versus one that does not. Reason: easier interaction***

We’ll I’m a B2B. A website isn’t nearly as important to my business… 83% of businesses use the Internet to research and find potential vendors*

Should I go it alone? The decision to go it alone or not is really a decision that only you can make. There are elements that you should take into consideration before making that decision however.

#3: Lack of expertise within your company Don’t invest valuable time and money in building a website on your own without the skills and expertise to do it right. An amateur site is a DEAD END for your business.

#2: Myopia You view your website differently than your customers do. An outside, impartial, and expert viewpoint may uncover something crucial in terms of design and usability.

#1: Cutting Quality Means Cutting REVENUE Your website is the prime conversion tool for all your products and services. The more you invest in your website, the more return you’ll reap from.
