Why should I have my own website?

First of all, to inform your local customers and to entice them to visit your store. Introduce your new varieties and products on the Internet… and soon customers will flock to your bricks-and-mortar business to find out more about these new arrivals and purchase them.

What are the risks of postponing my website creation?

It’s hard to say, but the risks could become major, especially if one of your competitor’s grabs this opportunity ahead of you and draws your current customers to his site.  Gardeners are more than ever in quest of information, pictures and new varieties.  Once they find a website providing easy answers to their questions, they will add it to their “favorites websites list” and will visit it on a regular basis.  What would happen if it’s your competitor’s website and not yours… you could loose valuable customers.  Why not be a trendsetter and accustom your customers to visit you not only in your store but also on your website as often as possible!

Remember how embarrassing it was not to have a fax machine?

It’s just like the fax machine several years back.  If you didn’t have a fax machine, you weren’t taken seriously.  People saw you as an amateur or even a charlatan.  As you consider that, think about the fact, that a website gives you more credibility.  Remember, your prospective customers demand instant access to information about your products or services.  If you don’t have a decent website don’t let your competitors beat you to the punch!  Get on the Web and make more money!

Think about this, your website can be actively closing sales and making money for you 24/7.  It’s like a sales person who never sleeps.  And never complains.  Now tell me what serious business wouldn’t want that advantage?
