In our last blog around our new white paper, we talked about how against a backdrop of ever-evolving customer expectations, a growing number of channels and routes to market and competitors on all sides, your website is a hugely powerful tool to help build brand awareness and drive business growth.
If utilised correctly, your site can act as your most useful (and cost-effective) business development tool. In fact, we encourage businesses to look at their website as their business development manager working 24/7 and taking no holiday. In the same way that you would invest in training and developing a business manager, you also need to invest in making sure your website is continuously optimised.
While this may seem a daunting task, with the right expertise and support it is possible to develop a site that not only understands your customers but also constantly gathers information about their likes, dislikes, wants and needs, in order to deliver an optimal customer experience.
A smart site can also act as a key brand ambassador. Through innovative and well-researched use of images, colour and messaging, your site can tell your story and sell your services in a hugely cost effective and wide-ranging way.
