In our current conditions, it comes as no surprise that technology is something we simply cannot live without. Even more, so is the constant development and improvement of technological discoveries. Technological advancement is something that is unavoidable. From our fast-paced cars that have replaced the slow carriages, to our handy-dandy cell phones that fit in our pockets as opposed to the humongous landline phones that are impossible to travel with, these are all proof of said advancement.
Right now, we are moving towards an age where just about anything can be found online. My point is, that it is common to see many websites online. Simply go online, and you’ll be able to find what you need. Thus, it is only conducive if businesses, large or small, at least have a website that people can use to search for what they require.
Here are a few reasons why you should have your own website:
Build Your Own Name
The first thing to remember when you own a small business is that you are practically unknown. Not many people might be aware of the existence of your business. By building your own website, you will be able to build your own name, and by extension, your own brand. The snowball effect of this is that more people would be aware of your business, hence helping you generate more customers.
Now, that you’ve built your own name, you must focus on making it more popular. This is because your business is most probably not one of its kind. Other bigger and better businesses would have a better set-up with a higher number of already establish customers and clientele. By having your own website, it gives you a competitive advantage that would be beneficial for you as it would give you a fighting chance for your business to survive in the long run.
Another to remember when having your own business is that you need to promote. Advertising and promotion for any business are a must. This is a no-brainer, no matter how famous you are. Having your own website makes it cheaper for you to promote your business as there is no need for printed flyers and posters. Not only is it better for the environment (fewer trees are cut down and less trash will be lying around), but also will it help you cut down your budget. You can instead use the money allocated to your printed promotional material in other departments that require more funding.
Besides it being cheaper and environmentally friendly, it is also more efficient. Let me tell you why. Firstly, your employees needn’t wait around in busy malls just to hand out flyers to people who don’t even want to be bothered by this kind of thing. Your employees can instead be dedicating their time to other places that need more attention, such as product packaging and so on. Additionally, a website is not restricted by location, hence, you’ll be able to increase your clientele to the whole of Malaysia, instead of just Selangor.
