Your website and social media accounts are accessible 24/7/365. Imagine that you want to buy from a store. You put in all the effort required to go to the store, but when you get there, it’s closed. We all know how irate we feel in that situation. You’ll think twice about going back given the bad taste its left (ok might have been your fault for not checking but hey, this is proving the point here!). You will just find another store that is more easily accessible.
Since your website is operational around the clock, from the convenience of the local coffee shop, their couch or their bed, your customers and clients can easily access your website and services.
Which is more convenient; driving around to look for different stores that are available to shop in, or sitting in the comfort of your own home and shopping for the products you’re looking for? The answer is pretty obvious, isn’t it? Smart businesses realize this and thus have their own website housing their products and services so that potential customers can browse online for the products they want to purchase.
