Okay, I am very sure you’ve heard tons of talks about owning a website and you keep wondering – “Do I really need a website?”
A local business owner once asked me this same interesting question –
“Eze, how beneficial is a website to my business?”
In this brief article, i am going to quickly help you answer crucial questions and tips that will aid in decision making as it regards getting a professional website and also choosing the best Web Design agency to help you attract more customers and grow your business.
The following are questions I believe you should give answers to as a first step:
- Is your Business/Brand something you would like publicized?
- Do you want to reach more people?
- Do you want to generate more revenue by providing services/products on popular demand?
- Do you have strong competitors and aim to have an edge above them?
If you answered “YES” to these questions, then I believe you really need a website whether or not you are a freelancer or the head of a team in a corporate organization.
We all know the main aim of every business (like I always say),
is to generate more customers and grow revenue.
If your business doesn’t boast of this, then you are clearly not in business
The first step to achieving this is to own a smart business website.
The following are outstanding reasons why you need a website:

Having a website shows people how serious you are and gives relevance to your business/brand. It also gives your business the opportunity to let potential customers know why they should trust you.
INCREASES YOUR REACH:
In 2015, the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, recorded more than 97 Million active internet users in Nigeria alone. This number has increased over the years. Having a website gives you the opportunity to reach out to the millions of internet users.

KEEP YOUR CUSTOMERS INFORMED:
Your website is more like an online Catalogue or better still, a brochure. Information about your business/brand is easily updated and this makes it easy for your customers to stay updated on the availability of a new product, upcoming event, special promotion or a new service you intent to offer.
A website makes your business available to potentials/customers anytime of the day and is accessible on every platform (mobile and desktop devices). Having a readily available information like this eases your customers’ stress of calling your office or paying their way down there just to get information.
SAVES YOU MONEY:
Think you can’t afford a professional website as a small business owner? You definitely can’t afford NOT to. Although the cost of getting a website varies.
PROMOTE AND ENGAGE:
Apart from direct marketing, i would suggest you leverage indirect marketing which involves sharing insightful tips on the benefits that comes with your offered services on Social Media platforms and Blogs.
