With businesses starting to slowly reopen in Kitsap and Clallam County, everyone is scrambling to market and get their business back up off the ground. Now more than ever, YOUR ONLINE PRESENCE MATTERS.
Consumers are asking a number of questions before deciding who to bring their business to. Questions like:
Are they open?
Is their office taking walk-ins?
What kind of protections are in place?
What are their hours?
Have prices been adjusted?
This is a call to action. If you are a business owner, you need to dust off that old password sheet, log into your website, and reconnect with your customers. The problem for many business owners is they have NO idea how to edit their own website (or it’s just too complicated/time consuming to figure it out). As a result, many businesses don’t frequently update their website, causing their otherwise loyal customers to not purchase their goods and services – or worse, their customers are heading to competitors.
On a similar note, many business owners are forced to pay a web developer high monthly maintenance fees just so they will make a simple change to their website.
We recommend every business owner take control of their online presence. If you are not making changes to your site directly… we have a proposal for you. Why not switch to a website platform that looks professional AND is user-friendly? There are many exceptional web hosting and development platforms that fit every business owner’s dream:
Easy to create
Easy to edit and update
Even if you are all thumbs when it comes to computers, you’ll very likely find these two sites very simple to use.
