Have you ever wondered why Apple, Samsung, Sony and other big MNCs companies need a website? They could certainly do without one as their business comes from their long established branding and products. However, would you give it a second thought if these companies do not have a website? And how would you know if there is a upcoming iPhone X or Samsung S9?
About 50% of Singapore’s businesses still do not have a website, for various reasons. However, given that everyone is so reliant on the internet whenever they require something, most people will google search the product they are interested in, and above 70% of people do not go past the first page of google search result.
If i am looking for a service (for example engineering services), i would be more inclined to go towards one with a website as it is a form of company’s image and i can look through what they have to offer. This is particularly important for businesses as they have new projects and products to add in periodically. Furthermore, you would want to let as many people know about a newly launched products / services that you have to offer, right?
If you are expecting international businesses, or clients to be working with you, or partnering with you, it would be important to have a website for them to go too, before they come for a visit. This would also in turn boost their trust and confidence in the company.
Better customer support & response
Be ready to serve your customer’s enquiry 24/7 and they would be pleased with your customer services. With limited time on hand a day, you would want to handle most of your client’s enquiry through a FAQ and reduce the amount of time answering enquiries on the phone.
Make your company’s service/product widely accessible
If you have a nice and innovative product that is very suitable for overseas market, you can’t possibly be producing it before bringing over to the country and see if it works. Instead, let the internet work for you by targeting the visitors there and get prompted for a response on your product.
24/7 business as your website is never down
Round the clock, especially for countries in the opposite side of the world, you have your services and products easily accessible when someone wants to look for it. You will never know when someone wants to look for your services.
