In 2013, if you aren't online you are missing a vital cog of your marketing and exposure. Without changing any of your existing business practice - simply adding an effective brochure-style website would at the bare minimum give searchers something at least to find and discover about your business.
Just think of it as a 24/7 advert diverting enquiries to your business - or maybe without it you have nothing heading to your business. At Organic Digital I have run my own business for 8 years before I started building websites that work for people who want results. It might not be about jargon and corporate invoices for you - and it isn't for me either.
Here's 10 more reasons why you should start doing business online right now.
1. New economy.
Internet has created a new economy, which by its explosive growth and sheer size already changed our perception of traditional way of doing business.
Companies like Amazon and Ebay have successfully created domination on areas, where just few years ago traditional brick-and-mortar companies were kings.
But, in order to be successful on the net, you don’t have to be a giant like them. In fact, now it's all about being found in local search - which means a local presence in Newcastle is more powerful and important than ever.
Many small and mid-size companies managed to build online businesses without fancy corporate web design companies or their ridiculous pricing systems.
Right now, studies show small and mid-size companies will be the main growth force of e-commerce in 2013 going forward.
2. Internet is a perfect venue for business.
In order to make a sale you need visitors to physically walk to your shop, or track down your number.
On the Internet, your shop is a click away from your next customer.
With Organic Digital your Internet storefront can be another pillar holding up your brick and mortar shop.
