(business website – 5 minute read)
Hi there accounting fan!
As you’re reading this website right now, I’d like for you to stop and ask yourself this: ‘Do I need to have a business webiste?’. If you already have one, great! If you don’t have one yet, this article should convince you to have one!
A business website builds credibility
Customers are more likely to trust a business that has a professional-looking website, rather than just a social media page or listing on a directory site. Having a website shows that you are serious about your business and committed to providing a high-quality service or product.
Also, how cool is it for potential customers to be able to search for your company name online and have your website come up on the first page? A good website creates a good impression, which in turn encourages online viewers to become your customers.
It gives you a wider reach
With a website, you can reach customers from all over the world, rather than just those in your local area. This can be especially valuable for businesses that offer products or services that can be shipped or delivered digitally.
For example, our accounting firm SH Advisory services the entire New Zealand and is not geographically bound to any area. Hence we have clients from all around the country. Perhaps one day we’ll have clients internationally as well!
A business website is a valuable marketing tool
Webites are great for promoting special offers, events, or new products. You can also use it to collect customer information, such as email addresses, which can be used to send newsletters or targeted marketing campaigns. I hope that you’ve already subscribed to our The Comic Accountant newsletter! haha!
As a resource for your customers
It can provide information about your products or services, your business hours, and how to contact you. This can save your customers time and make it easier for them to do business with you. In our business though, we take it one step further. This website, The Comic Accountant was setup specifically to serve as a resource for our readers who are interested in personal and business finance.
Set up your business website today!
In short, having a business website is essential for any small business owner who wants to grow their business and reach a wider audience. It’s an important tool for establishing credibility, promoting your products or services, and providing valuable information to your customers. So if you don’t have a website yet, now is the time to get one!
