How does having a website help my business?

Very importantly, someone can find you on the internet and contact you directly to acquire your services. So if someone in Natal searches in Google for “kitchen installer Pietermaritzburg” and your website is advertising kitchen installations in the Pietermaritzburg area, Google will have on record that your business provides this service and will show your business in its search results.

This is very powerful because a click on the google search link will take this person to your website where they can see what you offer, where you are located and your contact details.

If you subscribe to our online marketing offer, your business will even feature on Facebook “in the right places” and you will very likely see an increase in orders originating from Facebook. The positive impact on your sales could be absolutely incredible.
