Some would rather say why wouldn't you market your business
online? The way that people shop nowadays has changed from 5 years ago.
Many of us now shop with convenience in mind, rather than taking a
leisurely stroll down the high street. Whether you're at work in your
lunch break, or at sat on the sofa hastily trying to find a last minute
present, it always tends to be on a laptop or a smart phone. So to make
the most of your business, you want to advertise it where people are
looking. Directories and yellow pages are becoming a thing of the past,
so you do not want to advertise your business somewhere where your
market doesn't look. The internet is becoming available to those of all
ages, so here is why you should want to get your business on there too.
is an extremely targeted way of pinpointing your audience. You know who
your target market is, and therefore it makes it very easy to tailor
your website and advertising to suit them. If your website is aimed for
children, it is going to be full of fun and games in order to capture
them, whereas doing this for adults would not appeal to them.
can also track your hits instantaneously, making this a very good way to
find out how much interest you are getting to your website, and how
many of these hits are turning to sales. You are able to recognise any
problems. Perhaps your problem in this instance may be that your
ordering process is too complicated so customers will give up and shop
elsewhere, a problem which you can then solve.
With the internet,
you can market near enough to the whole world, giving you tremendous
chances at sales. Once your business starts to grow, the internet is a
great foundation to get your name out there. With the addition of social
media, for example Facebook and Twitter, it is now easier than ever to
take your business anywhere. This can enable your business to become a
large scale, international, iconic name if you want it to. And it's also
at a fraction of the cost.
It's also an impressively fast way to
get information to anyone. People nowadays will pick up their phone or
tablets to search the internet to get information. What can be faster
than that? So getting your website to these places is inevitably going
to give you the upper hand over others. Also, ensuring that your website
is mobile responsive will please your customers as it will be mobile
ready without them having to faff around scrolling and zooming to read
text. If this is the case, customers will unsurprisingly go elsewhere.
it is very cost effective to use online marketing and advertise to such
a wide range of potential customers. It is much cheaper than paying for
a newspaper, radio or TV advert. This is a big advantage to businesses,
particularly as costs can escalate quickly. Nonetheless, marketing is
such an important aspect for your company, it cannot afford to be
ignored, but it can be afforded to invest in online marketing.
other aspects of your business, it can be very stressful to manage all
parts of it, so investing in the skills and expertise of a web design
