Top 5 Reasons why your Business Needs a Professional Website

These are the 5 major reasons why you definitely should have a professional website for your business

1. Credibility – Small or Big, your business really needs to boost credibility, and one of the best ways to earn that is by having a professional looking website. Many people today resort to using the internet to get everything they need and want, not having a website loses the chance of garnering these consumers.

They are also picky when it comes to looks, so do not ever settle down for a website that just looks like a high school project as there is a great possibility that your site will be tagged as a scam, or simply a joke – no one will trust you if that happens.


2. Cost Efficient – Most business owners, especially small-time ones would assume that having a professional website is too expensive. Although there is absolutely a price when designing it to look professional and legit, once it is already running, it will just cost around $100 a month or as low as $30, and you get to reach more potential consumers faster and will have very broad marketing strategies available.

That is way cheaper that putting your business on a newspaper ad, and a better way to promote your business and not limited only to your area but almost anywhere that you deem you have consumers.


3. Accessible and Informative – Having a website allows all your customers to have details and information on it all the time, 24 hours a day, throughout the whole year. This is crucial for most people nowadays because of today’s extremely busy lifestyles. They would be having free times at late nights where most physical shops are closed, but a website is always open. This would also update your loyal consumers to know what’s new on your shop and would increase the potential visits you get from regular costumers.


4. Wider Market – Having a professional website will give you more area of coverage for your service or product. It can even allow you to access the worldwide market, there is no limit to where your website can represent your business – the only limit is if you would choose not to.

5. Better Customer Service – One of the best things about having a website is that you can simply provide details and answers to frequent questions by simply adding a FAQs page. This allows both you and the consumer to save more time and remember, “Time is gold.” If you won’t invest one, you will always have to entertain phone call about the same question just about your product or service which really cost a lot of time.

What Questions to Ask before getting a contract with any Website Development Company

Hiring is a website development company is absolutely not a joke, you are giving them a part of your business’ future; make sure you pick the right one.

web development company

  • How are the services priced? – Ultimately, this is the first question that you should ask or at least know from a website development company. Never directly ask how much after providing your project details without even knowing how they come up with that number, think smart and always survey first.Remember the basic aspects when it comes to service, the effort, time, and complexity, rely on those and you can judge for yourself if it is worth it or not.
  • Can you show me your past projects? – This should never be ignored; there are thousands out there who just senselessly sign the contract without even knowing how great their previous works are. Remember that the past is proof of how good one thing is – would you hire a surgeon, if all of his past patients’ surgery failed? If no, then you have good common sense and knows what “risk” means.
  • How Qualified is the company? – Never be afraid to ask these kinds of questions, remember that you are investing a huge amount of money to create your own website. You have all the right in the world to know how credible are they, do they have government papers on this type of business, is the description a perfect fit on what they do, have they ever worked on big time websites? Just check on things that will assure you that you are indeed facing a legit website development company.
  • May I know details of your team? – Remember that a professional website is never done by a single person; it is done by a set of experts and professionals. Before you get too comfortable, know first if the team members are all employed professional, not just some freelance that can be hired miles and miles across the globe.Because if that’s the case, you won’t be assured that their previous wonderful works are still made by their currently contracted freelancer, what if not and the new freelancer isn’t even knowledgeable, once again you pay big money for this; make sure you get the best out of it.
  • How financially stable is the company? – This might seem like a far-fetched question, but it is absolutely not, remember that if they go out, you will be left hanging. Make sure that the company you sign a contract with is stable and can continue running without new projects coming in. Websites don’t just pop up in a day, it takes weeks or even months just to be fully operational and can run perfectly.If you would hire a website development company that is not financially stable, just imagine the possibility if some kind of accident happens in the middle of the project, they would just declare they are bankrupt and just hand you down a half baked website – no one wants to receive half a car.
