Following are some benefits of using the Internet to increase
sales and cut costs. There is much more to the Internet than
the basic information we're providing here, these are simply
a few ideas to get you thinking. No doubt you will think of more
ways your business can use the Internet to gain an edge on your
competition as you explore and discover new Web sites; and Acklie
Web Design can surely find some additional benefits by getting
to know your business.
1. CUTTING EDGE MARKETING: Having your own site on the
Web creates and sustains the perception of your company as an
2. INCREASE YOUR SALES: The Web is truly a global marketing
opportunity. Improve the quality and quantity of customer contacts
for a tiny fraction of the cost of television, radio, or print
media advertising. How much would you have to spend on media
advertising (TV, radio, newspapers, etc.) to make your company
known to customers even statewide, much less nationally or internationally?
3. IMMEDIATE CUSTOMER RESPONSE: Business takes place 24
hours a day on the net; online inquiry and order forms let you
close the sale now.
4. SLASH LONG DISTANCE COSTS: Utilize e-mail to create efficient
communication between home office and field sales force, or your
client base. Save time and money on every phone call that is
replaced with e-mail. Think of your valuable phone time that
could be saved if clients had direct access to your information
without having to call.
5. UPDATE INFORMATION *NOW*: Unlike traditional printing
services, changes to information, specs, and prices can be made
available to your clients and sales force in a few minutes, instead
of days or weeks. Post product reviews, tests, and independent
magazine reports - linked to each product. Web sites can be updated
weekly, daily, or even hourly-- whatever suits your needs. Information
can be updated as fast as it becomes available.
6. CUT PRINTING AND POSTAGE COSTS: Using a Web site for
client and field agent access saves you money. End costly reprinting
whenever a document is updated. Disseminate newsletters, annual
reports, and client information at a much more attractive rate
in an electronic mode using e-mail.
7. STREAMLINE ORDER PROCESSING: Utilize e-mail, the Web,
and FTP to transfer new documents and the latest data to field
sales agents via downloads. Accept and process orders faster
from your sales force via uploads to your server.
