or Why Should I Put My Business On The Internet?
A question that I do not get
asked much anymore is, "Why should I put my business on the internet?" The question I get more often lately is, "What will it take to put my business on the internet and how fast can I get on-line?"
Most people realize, now more than ever, that the internet and the
World Wide Web are not just a fad or for computer nerds only.
Computer technology is easing its way into every household. We can no
longer bury our head in the sand and say, "Well, that computer stuff is not for me." The fact of the matter is that very soon, if you have a
television and a phone in your home you will be on-line.
The current wave of technology suggests that in the very near future
the television, computer and telephone will become one product.
FREE MONEY is not a catch-phrase that I came up with. I have
picked-up those two words as they have been repeated by several of my
business clients who have recently put their businesses on the www. I hear
it in phrases like, "This is free money. These orders come in from all over the planet with no added overhead."
Here are some advantages
to being "on-line"
- Advertising - Unlike television, radio and regular print
based advertising, the whole advertisement is very cost effective to
produce and keep in place - 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
- Interactivity - The www also allows interactive responses
from those that view Websites, making market research and rapid
responses to enquiries with a simple click of a mouse. The superior
advantage of e-mail as a form of communication and the internet as a
form of delivering data is quickly replacing print media, mail
promotions, even phone and fax communication.
- Marketing - If your product is of interest anywhere in the
country or if you are seeking contacts in foreign countries, a Website
is an ideal vehicle for furthering communication and sales ambitions in
these areas. With the use of an integrated strategy, sales orders can be
taken on-line and processed in the normal way. Using the www you can
target market to potential clients in the next town, county, state or
The Internet and the Web can do a lot for almost any business, be it a
small restaurant in a holiday town seeking additional customers to a large
company reinforcing brand image across the globe.
If you could expand your market area to reach outside the local area
for less than $20 a month reaching millions of potential clients would you do it?
This is why my clients no longer ask, "Why?"
but "How? What do I need?" and "How fast?"
There seems to be a sense of urgency. The first businesses to take
advantage of the internet will have the advantage over their competitors
in this arena giving the smaller companies the upper hand. Large
corporations are slower to change their marketing, but smaller companies
can adapt quickly and inexpensively.
