The internet has become a significant resource for finding information, replacing printed phone books.
It helps customers to quickly and easily find out more about your business and the products or services you have to offer.
The internet levels the playing field. With a well-designed site, your small business can project the image and professionalism of a much larger company. And remember, even if you don’t have a website, your competition does.
A well-designed web site can instill confidence in your business by representing your image and professionalism to your customers.
You are open for business 24/7, providing information about your services and the around-the-clock opportunity for sales.
Your website will allow you to attract new customers that may not have otherwise known about your services. A website providing a continuous source of new customers means increased revenue.
According to the Pew Research Center (http://www.pewinternet.org/), in 2009:

– 81% of research products or services they are considering buying
– 75% buy a product or service
