Having a website is key to bringing your business online, especially during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Governments are putting a lot of restrictions in our cities and towns, sometimes even closing stores altogether. For many businesses this has been a very difficult experience as their businesses are forced to close. To avoid closing your business during the COVID-19 Pandemic, AKG Digital highly suggests that business owners look into building an online platform, such as a website. Here are 3 Reasons Your Business Should Have A Website During COVID-19.

1. Your customers are online!

People in our communities are highly encouraged to stay home during the Pandemic to limit the amount of contact of the COVID-19. This means that your customer base is shopping online! Customers use the internet multiple times a day to make decisions about where to purchase their next product or service. If customers can’t find your business online, it is likely that they are purchasing that same product or service from your competitor.

2. Cost effective Marketing

There is nothing worse than paying for an ad that doesn’t bring you any sales! Websites may seem to cost a lot when they are initially being built, but the upkeep cost of a website per year sits around $120-$350 per year, depending on the size of your website and the different functions involved. Don’t forget-your website is available to customers 24/7, 365 days a year! At most, that would be about $0.95 per day to keep your website running! Websites can be linked to your social media platforms, bringing all of your customers to your website to shop for your products and services! We suggest hosting with a VPS platform. AKG Digital works with Amazon Web Services to deliver unparalleled speed and service on hosting across the world!

3. It helps you build your brand

Your website is your online brand. Your website is the place where customers learn about your business, understand who you are and what you offer to the community. Having a website in today’s world means having credibility in the market. Many customers do not trust a company that doesn’t have a website. Customers are very interactive with their favorite companies as they write reviews, recommend the business to friends and/or family, and follow the company’s social media accounts.

Having an online platform during the COVID-19 Pandemic, or even in 2020 is definitely a important step to ensuring that your business is successful.
