1. Credibility

When looking for a product or service, most people will do a Google search as their way to find what they are looking for. Having a fast loading, nicely styled website that reflects your brand is immediately going to build your credibility in their eyes. Even when friends or family refer businesses to us, we still go their website to check the business out and see if we think they are credible before making a decision.

2. Your Customers Expect Your Business to Have a Website

3. 24/7 Salesman for Your Business

With our modern lives, FIFO, spilt shift, lots of people don’t keep regular hours anymore, having a website means your business never has to close. Even better, you don’t always have to be behind the counter. Depending on the type of products/services you sell, you could be selling online to customers you have never met from all over the world. Even small micro business can benefit from a brochure style website.

4. Answer FAQ’s
