The Importance and Benefits of Having a Website for Your Business

In any aspects of our lives today including the business world, the Internet is considerably one of the greatest technology advancements ever made. Next to computers, it has opened a whole new way to manage and grow a business.

At present time, nearly all businesses are taking their merchandises or services online. Despite of having a physical store or office, company owners are also getting their own space in the web by building a website. This website is their passport to reaching out potential customers from various parts of the world. Other starting companies also take into consideration having a website first.

One of the obvious and most important benefits of having a well built website is it allows existing and new business owners to expand their market reach. It simply gives a company an authority on the products or services they offer while presenting their commodities or services without uttering a single word. And because the Internet is available 24/7, potential customers can access their website round the clock and allow them to do business even if they are asleep.
The cost of putting up and maintaining a website is also much lesser than building a physical shop. The cost of a domain and hosting, including the security of a website is still much cheaper compared to installing CCTV cameras, hiring a security guard, managing staff as well as paying rent and electricity and actual maintenance of the display and furniture.

Various online applications also help entrepreneurs in reaching out to new customers and keeping the communication line open with their existing clients. Such tools give owners a wide variety of means to do their marketing campaigns and allowing potential customers to visit and check out products even without visiting the physical store. With a feedback form on website, customers can also easily reach out to them and owners can easily respond to inquiries or other concerns.

With the fast emerging life, one should never be left behind. Studies show that a huge percentage of people are spending more time in utilizing and browsing the Internet than watching info commercials. While TV campaigns are still effective marketing campaigns, it is now a must, if you are aiming to expand your reach, to build, maintain and do your marketing online.

Having online presence and physical store is a good strategy. A physical store is still a great key to establish trust and confidence on your business. In today’s trend, either of the two is not an option. They need to go and be maintained hand in hand.

  1. Is $2,000 too much for an e-commerce website design and seo?
    I am thinking about using 3D-Cart as my shopping cart for my ecommerce website. They have a design and SEO package that comes out to a little over $2,000. I have tried getting quotes from other such companies and some are much higher. I want a quality, professional looking site with SEO. I just don’t know if I could find the same quality for less. Any suggestions would be great. I want to leave the design and seo to pros so it’s done right.

  2. Average costs of blogging website design I mean beautiful all bells and whistles, freelanced?
    I am saving up to get a website which main marketing will be through written articles. I want a really nice and professional looking website, easily maneuverable, SEO for engines, with everything that says come here and stay a while : > Can you give me a ballpark of how much I am looking at paying from a freelance designer please? Thank you…

  3. No, its base cost. But because it is base cost, that doesn’t do much to guarantee your site will be successful. Also, what you bring to the table as far as content and photos greatly affects the success factor of your website. You should come to them with no less than a 10-page business plan providing them with more content than they will need.

    Also, a shopping cart developer that provides turnkey website solutions should be a little suspect. For instance, although your site costs $2,000, maybe they’ve done enough sites to where it only costs them $200 of creativity and labor.

    But anyway, I’d say if you can get those people on the phone, and if you’ve talked to more than 1 person from their company, and if their portfolio and website examples instill a sufficient amount of trust, I would take the risk. (Although I am a quality web developer myself).

    If I was going to charge $2k for shopping cart and seo, only $400 would be applied to the seo. This amounts to 4 hours of work per day for a week. To put it another way, I charge $140 for Basic Website Promotion for 1 week. This includes sitewide optimization, industry research and submission to major search engines as well as relevant targeted website directories. Also includes integration of Google Analytics for site tracking.

    All I’m saying is make sure you know what you’re getting. Determine metrics that will indicate success (as far as the seo efforts), And perform a bit of risk assessment and figure out how much you’re willing to lose and be satisfied with how much you’re willing to trust.

    My one suggestion is to check out oscommerce. It is a great, free shopping cart program and you can find services that provide oscommerce websites. Also, zencart is an offshoot of oscommerce with more features. Maybe, since those shopping carts are free, designers providing solutions using them will use more of your $2k to help ensure your success and not just get you out the door.

  4. How Much Should Commercial SEO Cost?
    I’ve been referred to a service that charges approximately $5000 for website design and SEO. I’ve checked out the websites they have made for others and they seem to get results with high search rankings for their clients. Is this a competivie price though? I can design my own website fairly easily, I really am just looking for SEO. Is there cheaper, but effective ways of doing this (other than doing it myself)?

  5. You need a lot more than SEO to make your website successful. All of these features — http://pipeno.com/Features — are necessary. Having a freelance designer and developer build all of these for you could cost 10s of thousands so best to go with a pre-built system that has all these features and looks great — check out this site http://ladygaga.pipeno.com/ which has video, photos etc… and provides a dozen ways of making money by writing articles.

  6. website design and SEO?
    I am currently planning on making a new web site for a hotel with reservation capabilities. I am debating if I need a company to built the whole site and then SEO it or just built the site myself and then have a SEO company look at it? I dont want to spend an excessive amount on PPC campaigns and need organic listings for the marketing end. I am wondering if I need a new design compared to the existing site http://www.econolodgeflagstaff.com to have the best results.

  7. What do you think of this website in terms of design and SEOļ¼Ÿ?

  8. Hey Richard,

    It greatly depends on what you want accomplished and how detailed your project is. $5k is pretty standard, but you can get good work done for less. I did a search and this page has some real good SEOs that are recommended. Some do design work as well.

  9. Your questions are great. I think what you need is a web host that will assist you through the set up and maintenance of your web site. I personally enjoy having the opportunity to have a big part in the building of my site. There are web hosts that specialize in what you are looking for. I would suggest that you research many options. First compare feature-by-feature then dollar-for-dollar. This will ensure that you get the best fit for your needs and get you the most for your money. You can take a look at the web host that I use as one of your options. http://wahm.sitesell.com/UnstoppableDreams.html
    I would be happy to share about my experience using them as well.

    BEST WISHES!
