Perhaps you’ve been thinking about it for a while but the time is never right? Or maybe you just don’t know where to begin because there is so much you can do. We want to work with you to help you make the right decision and take action.
We know that running a small business or start-up takes complete focus and the last thing you want to spend your time worrying about is the website, search engine positioning, or social media strategies. But you also don’t have lots of money to throw away to big agencies to tech companies. So we want to be your high value affordable answer and partner in this endeavour. Read below to find out how we can work together and make your life easier.
Before you embark into the exciting world of online for your business its important to make the necessary preparation which will give you the best chance of success. This includes simple and straightforward planning so that you have a clear path of where you want to get to and how you’re going to get there.
Although planning can sometimes be a bit of a chore, once you begin moving if you don’t have a plan you’ll soon find yourself going in the wrong direction or getting stuck in one place.
Establishing a targeted strategy is also crucial as you build your plan. Your business has many competitors online and offline, so how are you going to position your business in the minds of your customers? Having a well-thought-out strategy made up of a collection of tactics will get you there. Then once you’re in the minds of your customers, they will think of your business when they’re planning their purchase.
Having your business represented on the internet is crucial for its future success. More than ever the internet is the first place people go to when they’re researching something. The traditional marketing channels no longer cut it.
Having a website for your business means you’re the one in control. Its a place that you can fill with the information that you choose, update it when needed, and where customers can visit no matter the time of day. You’re able to engage with customers directly and build their loyalty. Your website is hands-down your most important marketing tool.
Customers will visit your website instead of giving your business a call or looking it up in the directory. On the site they will want to find your business address, opening hours, products and services offered, and get to know the “personality” of your business – your brand.
You may not be ready to have an online store selling your products directly, but you should at the very least have an up-to-date website with this key information. The good news is that this is easier than ever and can be setup for much cheaper than you might expect.
However, if you’re already prepared to engage with your customers online in a more meaningful way and want to sell your products on your website, then please scroll down.
The most exciting opportunity for your business is to connect with your customers online and sell your product and services to them immediately. Having an eCommerce store enables you to do this. You can make sales even when your physical store is closed and you’re at home relaxing after a long day on your feet.
With modern technology and easy to use tools, there is now no excuse to build a great online store, even if it starts small and only offers a selection of your products. Its relatively easy and affordable to build and you’ll be able to keep it updated yourself without ongoing ‘webmaster costs’.
Our goal when working with our clients is to design and build an eCommerce store which reflects their business and is easy to use and update. We’re here to provide ongoing support where needed, but we want you, the store owner, to also be able to maintain the website and easily update it regularly.
Please reach out to us and we’d be happy to have a chat about the possibilities. There is absolutely no obligation and no cost.
