Proper Online marketing is a must in this technological era, it's what sets a successful business from a struggling one.
Your business is now forced to compete globally, since your customers are looking for the best provider of the service, with best quality and price, and they're looking online. The days when you could own a business that controls the market are over. Unless, you have some valuable product or service to offer with a competitive price tag on it, you are old news.
To compete online, a good start would be to have a website. But even if you don't have one we can help you. Lets assume you have already taken that first step and built your own website.
How much have you invested in developing your company's website? Have you asked yourself how many real opportunities came knocking your door asking for your service after finding you online and browsing your website. Did those opportunities cover the initial investment you have put in that website?
Fancy websites are a luxury for big businesses, that they can spend money on and expect nothing in return. For growing businesses an effective website is a must, it's that extra (adrenaline-driven) sales man you have selling your products & services all the time, everywhere, and with persistance to new & previously known audiences alike.
Ok, Having that said, still a website on it's own cannot generate real business; because on its own it is (with the Risk of sounding like a broken record)A pretty billboard in the middle of the desert that few (if not none) can see.
