Why your business needs a website and how you can get one for free on Vconnect

3 min read

For small businesses every little opportunity counts, one of the ways businesses are making sure they have a competitive advantage is the internet.

A website for your business is not just a statement of intent, it also makes it easier for customers to find information about your business from the convenience of a mobile device or a computer.

What are the benefits of having a website

There are numerous benefits to be gained by having a website for your business no matter how small the size of the business. Here are some key advantages:

1. Business credibility

Reputation is everything. A website lends significant credibility to your business. A professional looking website shows how committed you are to the business.

2. More customers

Having a website opens you to a customer base that you were hitherto excluded from. The fact that anyone with access to the internet can easily find your business means you are exposed to more potential customers than without a website. Embedded maps also help customers easily and quickly find your physical address.

3. Customer engagement

With a website, you can set up forms for enquiries, complaints and suggestions which you can respond to quickly to better serve your clientele.

4. 24/7 access

As long as your website is up and running, your customers can access your business at whatever time they want. This also saves you money running customer support.

5. More conversions

As your website leads to access to more customers, improved engagement with your customers and better support to your customers, you also enjoy higher conversion because of the improved services you offer.  You can also go the eCommerce route to get more sales.


So a website for your business benefits your customers in these three major ways:

  • Better information about your business
  • Improved engagement with your customers
  • Higher conversion rates
