23 Mar 9 Reasons Why You Need A Website in South Africa
Why do you need a website if you do not sell products over the Internet? Like many small business owners in South Africa, you may think that your business cannot benefit from having a website or that the website is not within your budget.
Or maybe you think that because you never use a computer, neither do your potential customers. These are all delusions.
Listed below are 9 reasons why your company needs a professional website in SA, no matter what size your business is.
1. Website Saves Your Time
Providing information to your customers takes time, whether by phone, face-to-face, in a brochure, or in emails.
With a professional website, you can provide a wealth of information about your products and services. Once your website is up and running, it will be available to your customers anywhere in South Africa or all over the world, saving you time.
What is time? Time is money!
2. Constant Availability
Many people browse the web in the evening when most businesses are closed, which is great because sites never rest.
The site will allow your business or organization to be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Having a website is like having an employee available around the clock – even on weekends and holidays!
3. Create A Site To Increase Your Income
According to statistics in South Africa, small businesses that have their own online presence have 39% higher income than those organizations that do not have their own website.
4. Your Competitor Has A Website
If your competitor has a website, then he has a clear advantage. Internet users know about him, but don’t know about you.
More than ever, people are now choosing to search the Internet over traditional means of finding information, especially using mobile devices.
Your business should always be close at hand when people search on search engines.
For many people, you don’t exist if they can’t find you with a search engine. In this information age, being online is vital and essential.
6. The Site Increases Customer Confidence And Improves The Corporate Image
With a professional website, you will improve the general public’s impression of you, which in turn will result in a greater sense of customer confidence in your organization.
7. Websites Help To Find More Clients
According to statistics in SA, 50% of Internet sales in South Africa are made through new customers. Having a website greatly expands your customer reach no matter what services or products you offer.
8. Websites Are Global
Most small businesses are only able to sell in their city or nearby areas in SA. Having a website, you can sell your goods and services throughout South Africa and even all over the world, if you wish.
You can find friends and contacts in places you have never been and where you may never go. Now working around the world does not require more effort than working locally.
9. Website Saves Your Money
