Retailers need an online presence
Small businesses and retailers may incorrectly believe that they do not have the resources to establish and maintain, but they need to do both.
Why do you need a website?
Did you know that your potential customers are typing [your product] [your suburb] (e.g. restaurant randwick) into a search engine right now? Regardless of whether they're looking to order a pizza, or research their local beauty salon, people are turning to the web to explore their neighbourhoods.
Don't take our word for it, here are some hard numbers:
The average monthly search for some variation of 'restaurant randwick' is almost 800 searches. It would be a significant boost for a local eatery if you were able to capture even 10% of these prospects.
Benefits of a website for retailers?
All retailers benefit from having an online presence, as it allows you to execute any and all of the following:
- Improve your brand, distinguish yourself - you're not just a name, address, and phone number in a list.
- Inform your customers - what do you offer, what are your business hours, where are you located, how can you be contacted.
- Incentivise your customers - what are your specials, what are the latest announcements, put them on your periodic sales email list, provide them with 'web only' discounts.
- Expand to a new channel - sell online.
It's agreed, you need a website - how do you get one?
