Your local business is running along pretty well. You’ve got a nice base of customers built up, and maybe they come back again and again. And since your business is local, you’ve decided that the a web presence is just not all that important to you.
If you’re in business today, this is the kind of thinking that might just be holding your company back from some serious growth. Today, customers look for businesses of all sorts online – whether it be the hardware store around the corner or the international conglomerate headquartered a continent away.
Don’t show up only on an old map…
For many customers, there’s a good chance that your corporate web presence is the very first thing that he or she will see. These customers will very frequently create initial judgements about your business based not on the quality of your services or goods, but on the quality of your website.
This is why it is imperative for any business, even a small or local business, to pay serious attention to the professional development of a high-quality web presence. A quality website, Facebook page (and footprints in other social media avenues, as well) will serve to differentiate you from the competition and give your customers peace of mind that your company is meeting their needs in the best possible way. A well-developed and well-managed web presence will translate to improved customer conversion rates. Your local business will grow, and you’ll find yourself a more successful business operator.
