IS your potential profit being allowed to slip through the net, or are your business customers being caught up in your web? The answer to that key question could be crucial in the ongoing success of your business.
Because if you are not selling your products and services via the internet then you are doing you and your business a disservice. And in this time of recession, can you afford to take that chance?
Surveys suggest that many businesses still do not sell online. It means they are failing to take advantage of consumer demand for online spending, which has increased dramatically as people prefer to shop at home rather than go out.
Despite four out of five businesses having a website, around half of those preferred only to promote their services rather than sell them, so the statistics show. Many did not believe they would find additional customers online.
Experts believe that firms must look to the internet to sustain or increase their business as doing so is becoming increasingly more important amid the economic uncertainty. It is fears over a lack of security and concern over distribution that is holding businesses back from making the plunge and yet selling on the internet can be simpler and more cost effective. Why not unlock the web of intrigue by getting some professional advice? It could save your business.
