Your website can be likened to a 24 hours sales person that is always available to make sales even when your business is closed.  


It can act as a digital brochure, sharing up-to-date information about your products/services, as well as a direct sales tool. E.g. When e-commerce or booking system is integrated into your website, it can allow customers purchase your product or book your service online even when your physical business is closed for the day. 



3. A website helps you connect with both new and existing customers


Your website will enable new customers who are looking for the solution you provide easily find you especially when they search online via Google and other search engines. This can only be possible if you have a website.
