If your organization doesn't have a website, you need one!....
And here's 5 reasons why*
#1 - Online Profile
Organizations spend tonnes of money creating brochures, marketing materials and distributing them. Individuals also spend a lot of time cultivating their personal brands on Social Media and other channels. By having a website you are able to turbocharge your storytelling; by customizing your site to suit your personal/business style, make an emotional connection and ultimately achieving your goals. Your potential customers/friends can find out about you and any of your products/services online in a well-curated environment.
#2 - More Customers
More than 2.4 billion people use the internet every day, and some 90% of those have purchased something or contacted a company, online in the last 12 months. So by not having a website, you will be missing out on a big piece of the pie.
#3 - Marketing
The internet has opened up a whole new world of marketing that didn’t exist before. Your website can attract new business by using a whole host of low cost marketing techniques. From SEO to SEM, Google Maps, sharing your website's links on Social Media etc.
#4 – Business value
Have you tried getting a business loan recently? It’s not easy, but if you try and the bank manager asks to see your website, you better have a pretty good one. It doesn’t just stop with the bank, the perceived value of your business will be lower in everyone’s eyes – especially your customers.
Reason #5 – Email@mywebsite.com
We know there are other ways to do this, but by having a website you can have your own email "firstname.lastname@example.org". It is more professional and easier to remember.
