Emery Road’s Top Five Posts From 2009

Now that the new year is in full swing and most of us are back in the office, I thought it was time to revisit a few blog posts from 2009.

Last year was a year of creative thinking and exploring new and more effective ways to reach people in order for us to stay in business. Some of us scraped by on our boot heels and others were a bit more successful and ended the year with a bang with new business.

To all of you who made it: Congratulations! I wish everyone a great start to 2010. May your business grow with all of the new and endless opportunities a fresh, new year brings.

What Can a Website Do For My Business?

Having a website isn’t just about keeping up with technology; it’s about providing your target market with a place to learn more about your company, giving them multiple ways to reach you and to determine if your company can handle what they require.

There are a number of benefits to having a professional website, including:

  1. Increased Traffic

    A website can generate more traffic to your company or storefront. When you have a website, you have a web presence. If a prospect finds your website and likes what he sees, you may just have a new customer, one you would not have obtained without the website.

  2. Happy Customers

    Customers want to work with professionals. They want to know that your company will provide a valuable service and will handle their needs thoroughly and with care. When you have a well-written website with a nice design, you demonstrate to your customers and prospects that your company is serious about providing the best possible service and keeping your customers coming back for more. A professional website will give your company an advantage over your competitors that either have a poor website or don’t have a website at all.

  3. New Customers

    When prospects want to learn more about your company, there is a good chance they will look to the Internet. If you don’t have a website, they may move on to another company that does. A professional website can provide those prospects with the validation they need to make the next step in deciding to utilize your services.
