Why do I need a website?
We are living increasingly in two worlds, the first being the physical one that that we eat, sleep and breathe in and the second being cyberspace. We are spending more and more time doing things like replying to emails, catching up with friends on facebook, searching on google, chatting on skype, shopping, keeping up with the latest news or even just checking the weather.
The internet has become a big part of our day to day life. To lay claim to real estate in cyberspace is affordable and in many cases necessary to get your business, product or message to your intended market.
A website is an important part of a business’ communication strategy. It has become almost expected that businesses nowadays have a website as people increasingly turn to their computers for information on suppliers, producers, clients and new opportunities. And by having a website the business’ products, services or information is available to prospective clients, investors or other interested parties 24 hours a day, seven days a week and from anywhere in the world.
Online shopping and ordering has become one of the biggest growing business sectors. Whether people can request quotes or order through your website or purchase online immediately more door are opened to a greater client base.
A website can be an invaluable tool to clubs and organisations. It showcases what the club or organisation is about, their values, beliefs and the club or organisation’s objections or goals. It can also be a portal through which members interact and can share thoughts, ideas and experiences.Photo galleries and event calendars make these websites dymanic and lively. If the organisation is a non-profit one a website is the cheapest and incredibly effective way of reaching potential donors, particularly if the donors are located in other countries.
