Businesses need to be online in 2020 – here’s why

Internet

(CIO.com, 2016)

We at Artonezero have been bringing businesses online since 2006, in fact, we pride ourselves on doing so.

With the current pandemic, it’s now very important that your business has a fully-fledged, user-friendly website.

We will share some reasons below why your business needs an online presence in 2020:

The current pandemic has changed e-commerce

It’s no secret that the pandemic has affected a lot of our actions this year. However, it has had the biggest knock-on-effect on e-commerce. With most retail stores across the UK needing to temporarily close, naturally, customers have shifted towards shopping online. In fact, total online retail sales are 50.7% higher than they were in February.

Elsewhere, research from Adobe also found that 57% of UK consumers have made a purchase online since March, and on average those who shopped online made 11 purchases between March and June. E-commerce will be here to stay, so it is more important than ever to shift your business online.

Having a website will attract many new customers to your business

It’s more important than ever to have a website for the sole reason that it will attract new customers to your business. In fact, only 48% of all UK businesses have a website, with micro-enterprises less likely to have a website compared to 84% of businesses with 10 or more employees having a website.

Your website will attract new customers through Google

It’s no secret that customers search for items online now. In fact, 81% of customers search online when looking for a new product or service. If you don’t have a website, you will be missing an opportunity to reach out to your potential customers.

Also, customers can easily find your website if it is well-optimised for search engines.

Moreover, having a website that is user-friendly, search engine optimised and modern can show off your businesses best qualities and bring more customers to you.

4. A website ensures longevity

With 96% of UK households accessing the internet, it makes sense to shift your business online as it will maximise the scope and enables more customers to find you. Having a well-built website can bring a great ROI too.

By having an effective website offering, you are maximising your business’s potential. It is a great place to refer potential investors to, as well as showcasing successes and recent company news. It can create a two-way conversation between you and your customers, and keep them wanting more.

 

Artonezero can help you create a new website to bring your business into 2020.  We’ve been bringing businesses online since 2006, with some great results too.
