Why you need a great website in today’s market
Posted on 14th October 2020 at 14:30
Most business owners are finding themselves having to adapt to the changes in human behaviour caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. According the Office of National Statistics, almost half the UK’s adult population in employment are now working from their home offices, compared with just 5.1% this time last year. Experts are anticipating a reduction in consumer spending in shops, cafes, gyms and leisure outlets due to office workers spending less time employed in their business premises.
This also means that rather than taking time travelling to their offices, more time can be allocated to browsing the Internet, opening emails, interacting on social media, reading blogs and carrying out research online before buying what they are looking for.
Now, more than ever, business owners need to focus their attention on leveraging customer attention and retention by investing in a new or refurbished website, if they want consumers to be buying from them, rather than a bigger brand or local competitor.
