We've seen the shift happen. Good ole marketing is taking a quick 360. This means before, you're in charge of how you take customers. Now, your customers are now in charge of choosing which business they'd deal with.
You're no longer alone. When people look for a car repair shop, they don't look at them yellow pages anymore. Where do they find you? If you don't know by now, you're in trouble.
But it's okay. I'm here to tell you. Ready?
They now look for what you can offer online.
With that in mind... are you sure that your business is ready?
Your customers have questions. Are you ready to answer them?
They need your service right away. They want to know what your rates are. Are you ready to give them that information to them?
There's a simple way to get this figured out for your business. And it's definitely not rocket science.
You probably already know. But you probably just don't have the time to tinker with it. And it's okay. Now there's a solution to your problem.
Look, if you want to appear always available to your customers online, the easiest way is to get a website up and running for your business in just a matter of minutes.
Your website can answer all your customers' questions, so they can perform informative and educated decisions. The more reasons you give them to go with you, then you will trump and win against other businesses who simply don't have a website.
Don't get me wrong. Having social profiles like a Yelp business page, a Facebook page, or any other page out there is great. But then, what would you do if that's gone?
By having your own website, you have total control on the information or how your customers can access information about your business.
Your website can act as your secretary, except you don't have to pay for a secretary. Oh and btw, a secretary could cost you thousands of dollars in a single month, whereas your website only cost you as if you're simply buying pizza.
A website is readily available for your business 24/7. Where as a secretary can only work so much, plus overtime fee can be too much.
So, what's your next step?
Give your customers a reason to stick with you.
Give your customers a reason to buy from you.
Don't have a website yet? That's okay. It's never too late.
