Your website is the face of your business online, and is every bit as important as your physical storefront—maybe even more so, since many people’s first impression of you will be your website, not your storefront.
Those first impressions matter:
- 80% of customers are more likely to do business with a brand that has a website than one that doesn’t.*
- 75% of consumers admit to making judgements on a company’s credibility based on the company’s website design.*
Good websites build trust. In a global survey, 70% of respondents ranked websites as the second-most-trusted advertising format, behind recommendations from friends and family.* That’s how influential a website is to customers!
Sure, you can just use a Facebook page as your online presence, but besides the credibility issue, you have very limited control over your appearance, and how information is presented to your customers. Perhaps most importantly, you have no control over the many things distracting your customer from engaging with you—even ads for your competitors displayed right next to your information!
And with beautiful, professionally designed websites available for as little as $99, and your own domain and hosting for less than $25 a year, frankly, it’s just crazy to not to have a decent website, if you’re serious about your business.
Let us help you create that great first impression.
