Need a website?

Do you own or operate a business in St Bernard Parish?
Don't think you need a website?
Does your current website need to be re-done?

Take a look at these reasons why any business will benefit from having a website:

When was the last time you picked up a paper phone book?

The next time you're looking to call or search for a small business, imagine your customers doing the very same thing.
What will they find?

- GO LOCAL:
The web is gonig local. Initially, the web was (and still is) a fascinating place where you could discover people, places and products from around the world. However, in recent years the web, particularly Google, has been pushing for valid, relevant local results in their search results. In fact, as much as 97% of all consumers turn to the web to find local services. I know I do. Whenever I’m looking for local stuff, I search Google.

Most people quickly search for the type of business and location in hopes of getting all kinds of information, such as:

- your address and phone number
- when you are open or closed
- what you have to offer

Without a website, this opportunity does not exist.

- SHOW ME THE $$:
So maybe you're not looking to sell online. Maybe you're a salon, seafood store, tourist destination or local coffee shop. However, consumers want to SEE what you do. Did you whip up beautiful hair-dos & nails for the school dance? Did you just put a new sign up at a local business? Is your seafood amazing and fresh? Show me.

We live in an on-demand society and people want to see what they're about to try/buy/see & do. It's as simple as that. If you're not showcasing your product/service/destination/idea, someone else probably is. And guess who will get the business?

- YOUR BEST EMPLOYEE:
A website works 24/7, promoting your business. No caffeine or energy drinks necessary.
Who couldn't use a dedicated employee like that?

A small business website with a portfolio, testimonials section, feeds from your Facebook and Twitter pages is a robust selling machine. And it works all while helping your audience to know, like and trust you.

- A WEBSITE SAVES MONEY:
As a small business owner you probably think you can't afford a professional website, but you can't afford NOT to. Although the cost of designing a website varies, once it's up and running, a website for a small business generally costs $0 to $100 a month. Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, when you consider the potential market you can reach with a website, it is a very cost effective way to promote your business.

- SOCIAL MEDIA CAN FALL SHORT:
So you post pictures like a paparazzi to your Facebook page. Your fans and followers see all of the wonderful creations you come up with, they know about your specials and engage with you regularly. That's great. But, in a few weeks to a year, those posts are buried and forgotten. A new person coming to your page is not going to scroll and scroll until she/he comes across the image that convinces him your product/service is for them. He may not care about the cute comments and conversations with your community. He wants to see the goods, (see #2).

A website with an image gallery that is well organized, will help customers quickly locate and see the images they're looking for. This makes the process of looking at your business' offering easy and painless.

Facebook is a valuable resource and should be used to it's full potential. But, in 5 years, will Facebook still be as valuable? Remember MySpace? It took off like a rocket and fell like lead shot during it's short history.
All of the info, pictures and comments you spent time on could be gone.
Just. Like. That.

A professional website is really not out of reach.
If you've been told that a website will be expensive, you're asking in the wrong places.
