You can also provide locations and contacts of your business offices, giving consumers information they need to buy your products and services.

A website enables you to tell your own story online and manage your reputation online. Without a business website, information about your business can still be online but it could be inaccurate.

With your own business website you can provide the true and unadulterated information about your business.

Some of them could be interested in your products and services, creating new opportunities for your business to grow.

Facebook is not in Nigeria, but we still use their services because they have a website. With an e-commerce website, you can sell even to customers hundreds of kilometres away.

3. Grow your Business with Online Tools

A lot of online tools are available to enable you understand your customers. These tools will enable you discover a lot about consumers online and provide solutions that will enable you leverage this information.

Having a website makes it easier to leverage online tools like Google Analytics and Facebook business pages for growing your business.

Having a website also means you can easily take advantage of potentially viral marketing techniques like Affiliate Marketing and Influencer Marketing.

With these marketing techniques, you can reward your fans and social media influencers for recommending your products to their friends and fans. Of course, the easiest way to do this is by sharing a link from your website.

With online advertising you can target visitors who are looking for your class of products and services on the internet and drive them to your website to see your offers.

With a website it is easier to engage with your customers using social media and email. Engage with them on social media and drive them to your website to view your offers.

4. Leverage on your Offline Advertising

These days after viewing an advert offline on a newspaper, TV, or radio, online consumers usually go online to get more information about advertised offers.

Without a website, a gulf is already created in your business promotion. Interested viewers/listeners of your ad are left in the dark with lots of questions that needs answering.

Having a website will enable you provide detail information about the offers being advertised and how they can secure them.

There is a limit to the amount of information you can put on ad advert. Ads are supposed to focus on generating interest (attraction); your website should focus on information and call to action (conversion).

5. Build and Manage your Online Reputation

Having a website puts you in a better position to build and manage your reputation online. For example, using SEO you can make your website the top destination for consumers looking for your class of products and services.

This puts your brand in front of consumers interested in your kind of product and improves your brand recognition and reputation.

By creating a blog (a type of website) on your main website, you will be able to engage with consumers and build a community around your kind of product and service.

This will enable you build respect and loyalty in your industry, which is good for your business.

A website also enables you manage bad press hurting your reputation. Once there is bad news about your business, journalists and bloggers look at your website for your response.

No website means they will use their imagination, and you know what happens when that happens.
