What is the importance of having a website? Listed below are some compelling reasons.
You website can be an effective way to communicate your message to people.

You can also add a “contact us” feature to your website to make it convenient for anyone to reach you.
By having a web presence you can expand your market share significantly. You are not limited to your local trade area, now you will be making your organization and it’s message available globally. By having a well presented website, information about your services will be available for everyone to see.

With a website you can revamp your marketing plan and begin to advertise via your website for only a fraction of the cost of expensive mailings and print advertising. Internet advertising is more targeted to a specific audience. People who visit your website are there because they have an interest in your service.
