Advantages of the Net
The internet has dramatically impacted the business world in the last few years and this trend will certainly continue well into the future. Many companies have discovered the advantages of having a presence on the internet and have successfully addressed corporate objectives by integrating their web site as part of their business strategy.
A web site can generate awareness and provide a world wide store front for your company while automating many business procedures 24 hours a day. Let 1st Tech help your company benefit from the many advantages listed below that are available with a well designed and marketed site on the World Wide Web.
- Establish a presence
- Over seven Million people have access to the world wide web with more and more added every day. Your business cant afford to ignore this many potential customers. Become an active member of this new and growing cyber-culture by developing a web site. Your company can easily and inexpensively expand with a new store that is open 24 hours a day in one of the fastest growing cities in history.
- Develop lines of communication that promote contact with potential clients and organizations. What an easy way to pass out hundreds or thousands of business cards advertising what you do and how your clients can contact you.
- Provide business information
- Like any printed form of advertising, your web site can post your business services, hours, location, phone and e-mail for the public to view, but unlike the traditional advertising mediums, your web site can have instant communication with information about your company that changes regularly. A restaurant may allow customers to check on reservations for availability, search the menu for vegetarian dishes, and see what the chef has posted as the special of the day to help them quickly make an informed decision. Information on how and why people should use your company, frequently asked questions, and more can all be just a few mouse clicks away.
- Service your customers
- Your customers can have access to business information and services that may not be available any other way. Your clients can be from anywhere in the world and shop in your store like never before and from the comfort of their homes. Even if you have a large inventory, anyone can easily and quickly search your database and locate the exact item that they were looking for and purchase it online.
- Conduct business
- A web site does not have to make money to be considered a successful endeavor, but it does not hurt to generate some type of income. Your web site can provide your customers with the tools needed to locate the exact product that they are looking for and the forms needed to purchase any item or service online. This can occur automatically without draining human resources 24 hours a day
- Provide files to download
- All pamphlets, brochures, advertisements, and even a demonstration video of your product or service can be down loaded from your web site. Anyone interested in your company will have access to files that can be designed to print beautiful informational brochures, complete with pictures of your staff, or tables and graphs of information about your company. These same files can have links to picture, sound, and video files to enhance your ability to deliver an interactive and effective introduction to your companies products and services.
- Remote employee/office access
- Your employees on the road or in satellite offices may need up-to-the-minute information to properly accomplish their tasks.
Sensitive information can be protected with a password for employee access only. For the cost of a local phone call an employee can log into the "office" from anywhere in the world at any time.
Establishing and maintaining a web site can be relatively inexpensive and far more versatile and interactive when compared to other advertising mediums.
The internet may not be the only way you conduct business, but it should certainly be one of the ways.
