Why Your Business Should Be On the Web
Over 605 million people are estimated to be online in 2003, and this figure is predicted to nearly double annually in the next five years. These days more and more companies are discovering the benefits of establishing a presence on the World Wide Web
This takes many forms, from an online brochure used to compliment conventional promotion; through to market research and customer service; right up to fully fledged online catalogues or ecommerce solutions - where customers can actually order goods online.
In whatever form it takes, companies are finding the web an excellent resource. From small beginnings the web has grown at a tremendous rate making it the fastest growing medium of all time. In 1996 online sales figures were only 2.8 billion. This has grown dramatically and is expected to reach 45 billion sales this year. What's more, by the year 2005 it is predicted that 50% of all credit card transactions will be made over the Internet. Add to this the fact that the number of people shopping online is increasing by 230% annually, and I'm sure you can see the huge potential of the web for your business.
Your company has the opportunity to gain a huge advantage over your competitors. Over the next few years the Internet is going to completely change the way we do business. It is probably the most important development in business and communication in the history of this planet. However, because the Internet is developing at such an amazing rate -those companies who put off entering the world of online commerce may never be able to catch up with their more forward thinking competitors.
Other attractions of the web include its low start up cost; its flexibility and its huge global market. No other media offers such a huge audience at such a low cost. What's more, the web gives any business the opportunity to expand its operation to international dimensions without the costs normally associated with setting up such an operation. It also allows the small business, to compete on an equal footing with large multinational corporations. It is the small to medium enterprise sector (SME) and (SOHO) small office, home office sector, working in conjunction with web developers, who are making the best strategic use of the web and overtaking large business in the process!
