How to make your small business grow through a website

By Herbert Nyaisu | January 30th 2017
A website usually works as a marketing executive only that the website is at work 24 hours a day, and has more content and features than a cute marketer. There are many benefits of having a website for your small business but I will mention a few:

1. Advertising around the clock - a website never goes down unless you are late in paying for your hosting or there is a bad internet connection

2. Professional image - Businesses which have websites tend to be perceived to be more professional than the businesses which do not have websites

3. Access to information - A website can carry unlimited information about your business. This saves time and inconveniences which come as a result of too many inquiries

4. Sales will double or even triple - If you are selling at a specific amount of items in a day, offline, just ask yourself if you went online.

 Everyone is going online, due to the popularity of social media and online shopping. You should take advantage of that.

I will share more benefits on why you should have a website by now, in my next article. But by now, you should be weighing your options!
