How a Great Website Can Make Your Company a Superstar


Did you know that an estimated 37% of businesses* still don’t have a website?

If you’re one of them, you might be wondering if that’s a problem.

And unfortunately, the answer is ‘yes’. Especially right now.


How a Great Website Can Make Your Company a Superstar


Accelerating the digital shift


The digital shift has been taking place slowly and steadily over the past few years. But the global health crisis is speeding everything up. Across the UK and Europe, online shopping rose by nearly 130% as brick and mortar retailers were made to close their doors. The web is now the ‘go-to’ way to find a business.

But if you’re a retailer, you don’t really need a website, do you? After all, isn’t that what online marketplaces like Amazon and eBay are for? It absolutely is. But they’re not what customers want.

A study carried out in June 2020 found that customers are craving familiarity more than ever before. They much prefer interacting with businesses directly through a brand website, rather than via a third-party platform. This engenders trust, and a greater connection to the brand, particularly during uncertain times.

Right now – and into the future – having a website really is a no-brainer. But the truth is that just having an online presence is no longer enough. To make your company a superstar, you need a great website.


Great websites for great businesses


Building a website is just one part of the equation. The other part is having a website that’s truly great. Good UX is not only essential for creating a stress-free on-page experience. It also differentiates your company from the competition. As things begin to shift online, you can be sure you’re not the only company reading a post about web development right now!

It’s no secret that digital competition is fierce, but the right website can help you shine. According to HubSpot, 90% of visitors will leave a website if it’s badly designed, and 93% will leave if the site doesn’t load as quickly as they’d like it to. Statistics like this are amazing opportunities to listen to what visitors are looking for. Listening will help bring value to audiences – and that can help to transform your brand into a leader in your industry.


With a great website, your business can:


  • Instil trust in your audience, especially during difficult times
  • Deliver messages ‘from the horse’s mouth’, communicating directly with the audience
  • Take charge of its own brand
  • Manage online reputation and build a strong online presence
  • Highlight industry expertise to become an authority within the field
  • Engage with your audience
  • Stand out from the crowd
