The power of a website
The goal of this article is to help you understand the power of a website, it can be so much more than an online brochure.
Your best sales person
If a website is designed to drive sales, it can be your best, high performing salesperson. Why? It can say the right things to the right people at the right time. You can tell it exactly what to say and it will be consistent in its approach. It will never have a bad day. You can give it goals, you can monitor it and tweak until it delivers on those goals.
It can do the work of 5 people
Imagine having a work force that is working 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. That is 8760 hours of manpower. That is a workforce that never goes on holiday and very rarely gets sick. How many people would it take to cover those hours? If one person works 40 hours a week for 46 weeks of the year, that is a total of 1840 hours of manpower in one year. A quick division to show how many workers it would take to cover 8760 hours. 8760 / 1840 = 4.76 That is almost 5 people. So, your website has the capacity to do the work of 5 people! I think that is quite astonishing. The price of a website can be a lot less than hiring 5 people. Image not having to deal with extra interviewing, training and contracts of employment.
What can a website do?
A website can do multiple jobs. It can be easy to put more bells and whistles on your site than is necessary. This can have a detrimental effect. It can make your site cluttered and put people off.
