When we talk about business, what we are talking about here is the offering of some goods or a certain kind of product in exchange for money or any other accepted legal tender which you would take in exchange for your own offering. For any kind of business to stay in shape and qualify to meet the meaning of the word in every sense of it, there has to be a certain kind of product that is being sold and trust us, there is no business without a product with which it keeps its customers engaged.
The kind of product which you offer could then be one that can be seen and quantified or just one that can be offered and qualified, leading us to the concepts of product based businesses and service-based business respectively.
There is an edge that the peddlers of product based business have over those in the other sector of service based business because the former can showcase their goods to the public straight up and the latter just has to rely on their convincing skill and also, any and all feedbacks and testimonies that they could have had from other customers to make a new one trust them since what they are offering cannot be seen till it has been done. For this reason, it is kind of challenging for someone to develop this kind of business model and keep up with it, given the kind of vigor involved and that means that you need to use all the means at your disposal to get your services and service based business out there. One of the best ways to actually get people to then see what you are made of and what you can offer is a website which can be your key to unlocking an endless sea of client markets.
It is not rare these days to go online in search of a product and find one website or the other that would offer you that kind of product for sale, indicating the price and the availability also but try that for service based businesses of any kind and you would find that you would come up short with results. You have to know that these days many people would prefer to get what they want online because let’s face it, smartphones and internet technology is almost everywhere which makes it one of the most viable options that you could ever consider going for.
If you are not very convinced that you need a website, lets open for you a book of reasons that would help you make the right decision and see the light in this subject matter. For your business to grow, there is no doubt that you would need to advertise it to get the maximum prospects interested in what you offer going through media houses, publications and the likes is very expensive as opposed to a website where you can have as much banners and content as you like to help promote your business in the same vein, all for next to nothing.
One thing that you should not also forget is that you would be giving your customers a lot of comfort in the sense that they would not need to get in the car and drive all the way to your location (which frankly, most people would not do) to make inquiries on what kinds of services you offer when they could have easily obtained such information and so much more from your website online.
When you think about having a business, the best way to expand is to think locally and act globally. Thinking locally would help you identify the need of your immediate environment and cater to them while acting globally is best achieved by setting up a website which would link you with even more clients from all walks of life, places that you would most likely not have reached if you had stuck to spreading the gospel by word of mouth and local advertisements only.
What most businesses pay for the most these days when it comes to expansion is data as regards to the kind of people that love and use their product and as well, what the customers would like to be changed or improved upon. By getting your service based business a website, you automatically and readily have access to all these kinds of information for free because your website would keep statistics of the kind of people that visits, from what locations (as a function of their IP addresses) and you could even get a lot of customer feedback and important comments that you would have otherwise missed out on.
Not to mention the fact that you won’t have to prove how credible you are to different clients over and over again (since there would be more than enough proof of your service on the website) and that you would be able to retain clients on the long run, there is an assurance of increased sales in leaps and bounds only if your business can get out there more. That you are getting low income from the offerings of your services might not be due to them not being up to par or sub-standard but maybe because you’re not getting it out there enough.
We strongly believe that if your service based business does not have a website that showcases all of your unique talents to the world, you are not just doing yourself a good deal of bad but also, doing the world a gross injustice by keeping such talents as yours hidden from the in
