If you envision yourself having a career as a web developer and you’re thinking about signing up for web development courses in Dallas, TX at MediaTech Institute, you can be sure that you’re going to learn everything you need to know about building great websites for your customers. The one thing you’ve probably already figured out is that just about every business needs a website to survive and compete. This is especially important for small businesses trying to go head-to-head with larger businesses. Once you’ve finished your web development courses in Dallas, TX at MediaTech Institute and you’re ready to get your feet wet by developing websites for small business owners who may not be sure if investing in a website is a good idea, you can tell them that there are a number of reasons that they should put web development at the top of their list of smart expenditures:
A Website Can Save Them Money
Their initial expenditure on web development plus the low cost of monthly maintenance will be a huge savings over other forms of non-internet marketing that they will have to use to get their business noticed. They should consider the cost of buying billboard space, running ads in local newspapers, printing flyers, mailing brochures and more and the cost of setting up and running a website will pale by comparison.
A Website Offers Them Credibility
Almost every business has some kind of online presence and customers have come to expect that they can find out something about every company they’re interested in by going online. If your clients don’t have a website, even a DIY website, they’ll lose credibility and potential customers will move on to their competitors who do have websites.
A Website Can Open Their Business To A Bigger Market
With a website, people across Texas, across the United States and around the world can find your clients and learn about their products or services. While they may not necessarily want to ship products to Hong Kong or Buenos Aires, word-of-mouth can spread from online viewing of their site, which can lead to an expansion of their business beyond their local area.
A Website Is Always Open
Unlike a brick-and-mortar or home-based store, a website is always open for business, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
A Website Keeps Their Customers Informed
Ever wonder why the print version of the Sears catalogue is no longer produced? It’s the same reason your clients don’t want to be stuck using old-fashioned print marketing tactics. Once a brochure, catalogue or flyer reaches customers’ mailboxes, it’s out of date. A website can be updated instantly with new products or new information about their business so that their customers have immediate access to everything they have to offer.
A Website Saves Them Time
Consider all of the man (or woman) hours involved in marketing and running a business the old-fashioned way. Compare that to the ease with which a website does most of your client’s marketing and selling for them, even while they’re sleeping, and they’ll find that it will save them time that can be spent concentrating on other things.
