Is your existing corporate website outdated and slow? Maybe you don’t have a company website yet? How much do you actually know about company website design? Hosting? Writing content?
A website is essential for any business, whether you’re an electrician, hair stylist, builder, shop owner or stockbroker. A company website can generate leads and increase sales and revenue. It can help raise funds, encourage subscriptions and provide an online presence that’s essential in today’s digital age. You don’t have to be a big multinational to have a corporate website, you just need to realise its importance to your bottom-line and then look for help from an experienced developer.
After all, online shopping is continuing to grow rapidly every year. This was noted by Australia Post who recently reported that four out of five households made online purchases in 2020 to a total of $50 billion – a growth rate of 57% compared to 2019. Obviously, this increase is partly due to the pandemic, but it’s unlikely to backslide anytime soon. This means that you need an up-to-date company website not only to engage your customers, but also to give your business the credibility and online presence it deserves, as well as leveraging your share of the ecommerce marketspace.
However, before contacting the GO Creative team to discuss developing your new company website, it’s helpful to have some knowledge of the process. So here are five things you need to consider before contacting your developer.
