If you don't make it easy for shoppers to buy from you this Holiday Season, you can be certain they'll shop elsewhere.

The hustle and bustle of the Holiday Season is just around the corner.  That means it's time to figure out how you can attract more shoppers and generate greater income during the busiest time of the year.

Let's face it, people are already running low on free time. Add in the demands of the Holidays, and stress builds.  The most successful business owners understand the need to make it easy for customers to shop with them.

One of the greatest ways to offer convenience is to have a web site that catalogs all (or at least most) of your products. This way, customers can "window shop" anytime from the comfort of their home or office. If you add e-commerce, the ability for shoppers to buy online, then your store is suddenly open for business 24/7.

People love the Internet. People also love to shop locally.

The web offers immediacy, convenience, and the opportunity to comparison shop and locate the perfect gift. Local shopping offers personalized service, unique merchandise, and a sense of being part of the community.

By putting your business online, you offer shoppers the very best of both, and they'll express their gratitude through the power of the purse.

Holiday shopping shouldn't mean spending hours at the mall or driving around the block 4 times looking for a parking space. How many times have you stood in line at a store and noticed just how miserable the other shoppers are? Together, we can change that.

We'll show you how easy it is with a free, no-obligation consultation.  Just call 973 744-2900 and we'll be happy to schedule it at your convenience.

If you don't believe people prefer online shopping, read on:

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, since 2001 online sales have increased an average of over 25% per year, while  overall retail sales have grown at only 4.5% per year.  The trend is clearly in favor of online shopping.

Even during the Great Recession, online sales continued to grow while in-store sales fell. Online sales for 2009Q4 were up 14.4% over 2008 according to the Commerce Department.

4th quarter Internet sales have increased about 25% each year since 2001

It's all about your customers.

People value their money, but most people value their time even more, so they are far more likely to shop the merchants who make the shopping experience most convenient and enjoyable. Why not become a business that's easy to buy from?

Whether you’re eager to begin selling online or if you’d prefer to create an online catalog, we can make it happen.

You may feel uneasy or intimidated at the thought of putting your business online. That's okay, we understand -- and taking the time to answer questions and educate you is part of what separates us from our competition.

We begin by investing a lot of time getting to know you, your business and your customers. We'll ask a lot of questions to understand the marketing you are presently doing, how your business is trending, and where you want to take it. We need to understand how committed you are to your customers and what makes your business special.

If you don't have an answers for everything, we'll help you develop them. It's important.

Our goal is to build you a web site that attracts new business, encourages customers to buy more and helps you to better fill your customers' needs -- for years to come.

Reasons why you don't already have a website:

  • You just haven't gotten around to it.
    If that's the big stumbling block, then you already understand the benefits a professional web site can bring to your clients and by association, to your business. Now it's time to stop thinking about it and start doing it. Call 973 744-2900 and let's get going!
  • You don't think your business would benefit from a web site.
    If you plan on closing your business within the next 6 months or if you have no desire to increase your sales or gain new clients, then you are probably right... you don't need a web site. If, on the other hand, you plan on staying in business, want to grow and generate more profits while serving new and existing clients, then you should call us at 973 744-2900 to set up a no-obligation consultation.
  • You don't feel knowledgeable enough about web sites to know what you need.
    We believe educating our clients is an important part of creating successful web sites and marketing strategies. Everything we recommend and do for you is based on experience, research, and a relentless desire to grow your business. We'll eagerly explain the reasons behind it all, in as much (or as little) detail as you want. Though you'll benefit greatly from the education, there's a self-serving reason behind it, too. We know that the more you understand what we are doing for you and why, the more you'll appreciate and value our service. See how much you'll learn during a no-obligation consultation. Call us now at 973 744-2900 to schedule.
  • You don't have the money for a web site.
    But can you afford NOT to have one? If you are spending $300 per month on newspaper or magazine advertising, you can afford a web site. If you are spending $150 per month on a Yellow Pages ad (and who looks at phone books anymore?), you can afford a web site. Even if you are buying a $4 latte grande every day, you can afford a web site.

    Most business owners, once they are educated on the real benefits of an online presence, can find the money to develop and maintain a web site. Even if funds are low, you can begin with a small investment and add functionality as your business grows. The greatest returns you can hope to get from your business will come from implementing powerful marketing strategies. Learn how a web site is an important part of that strategy by calling 973 744-2900 right now. A no-obligation consultation is sitting right here with your name on it.
  • You had a web site before, and it didn't help your business.
    Let's be honest, not every company or individual providing web development and marketing services is equally qualified. Just as it takes more than having a hammer and saw to be a carpenter, having a computer and Internet connection doesn't make someone a web developer. When you choose us, you get the benefits of more than 20 years of Information Technology experience, more than 10 years of proven success in web development, e-commerce and graphic design, plus plenty of experience and education in writing copy and developing marketing strategies. Let us put it all to work for you. Call us now at 973 744-2900.

Even if you're 99% sure you don't want a web site, we invite you to call for a consultation. Whether you do business with us or not, you'll come away with procedures and advice that could bring exponential growth to your business. Isn't that worth a phone call and an hour or so of your time?
