Ways A Web Site Can Help Your Business Grow
7 Ways A Web Site Can Help Your Business Grow
1. Pay-Per-Click Advertising
One of the most cost effective and efficient means of advertising
is on the Internet. Pay-per-click advertising, for instance, allows
you to place ads on behalf of your business for as little as 5¢
The best thing about this type of advertising is that you only
pay a fee when someone clicks on your ad. That’s right! You
only have to pay once the customer clicks on your link and enters
your web site. Pretty cool!
2. No Postage Fees
If you have tried direct mail to promote your business, you probably
discovered that direct mail advertising certainly isn’t cheap.
With the high price of postage these days, your costs for conducting
a direct mail advertising program could run in the hundreds if not
thousands of dollars. When you have a web site, however, you can
send electronic newsletters, announcements, invitations and sales
bulletins free of charge! This allows you to stay in contact with
your customers on a regular basis without worrying about postage
3. No Printing Costs
Do you currently print-off information (manuals, booklets, brochures,
etc…) that you send to your customers? Turn that information
into an electronic file then send it to your clients via email.
By making your printed files electronic files, you have the ability
to distribute your information through email at no cost to you.
Simply attach the file in your email and send it on its way.
4. Accept Credit Cards
Many of you know that by accepting credit cards, you could potentially
increase your sales by as much as 30 to 100 percent. By having a
web site you could register at PayPal (there’s no fee to register)
and begin accepting all major credit cards and checks for as little
as 2.5 percent-2.9 percent for each transaction.
5. Expand Your Customer Base
Having a web site allows you to conduct business with anyone, anywhere
for just a few dollars a month. There's no need to place ads in
different states or counties to expand your business. Just get a
professional web site equipped with the right tools and you will
be ready to sell your products and services to an international
marketplace twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
6. Out-Shine Your Competition
Do your competitors have a web site? If they don’t, this is
a great time to gain a competitive advantage and get a web site
that displays the professionalism of your business. Do your competitors
have a better web site than yours? No problem, you can upgrade your
old site with a new one by using a professionally designed template.

If you have always wanted to achieve true success in your business,
the Internet can help you get there. The Internet helps provide
a level playing field for small businesses, giving you the opportunity
to look and act like one of the “big guys”. Don't get
left behind! Get a professional web site and see how the Internet
can help you become more efficient and more profitable.
