1. Having a website can help you generate a professional image-
A professionally designed website is one of the best ways to instill confidence in new customers who are not familiar with you company. It gives the impression they are dealing with a firm they can trust and will generate a sense of respectability.

at any time -
Unlike the yellow pages you can update your customer offerings at anytime. Plus it’s cheaper and quicker to update your website than printed materials such as brochures and flyers!
4. Sell More Products -
Millions of people log on to the internet each and everyday, creating billions of dollars sold by E Commerce businesses.
5. Provide Research information -
Consumers spend hours of time researching potential businesses, products and services prior to making an educated purchase.
6. Reach desirable Demographic Markets -
The World Wide Web is arguably the highest mass-market demographic available. Mostly consisting of college educated or being college educated consumers making high salaries or soon to make high salaries.
7. Open International Markets -
With a Web page, you can open up dialogue with international markets as easily as with the company across the street. Another added benefit is that they can access your offices information for the price of a local phone call.

Business is worldwide but your office hours aren't. Web pages serve the client, customer and partner 24 hours a day, seven days a week. No overtime either.
