Here are some interesting marketing statistics on how people prefer to speak to someone before committing to purchasing online. Make your website display contact details so people can do this easily.
"Research shows that the phone call is still an important part of the online shopping experience but marketers are failing to recognise the value of offline sales, missing out on potential revenues as a result. ResponseTap estimates that offline channels such as phone calls play a role in generating the £582 million Britons spend online every week.
Indeed, the survey of more than 2,000 UK consumers and interviews with 250 marketing managers commissioned by the analytics specialist, found that 57 per cent trust retailers and service providers more when they are easily accessible by phone."

We have just got the task of doing all the websites from a large computer sales, support and networking company who we have been dealing with for over 15 years and they have been getting busier and busier with large contracts and they don’t want to do website development work anymore so thats great. We have done overflow work for them in the past so they know what our work is like.They have a backlog of 8 websites to do, some involving bespoke database work, and they will now be promoting website work whereas previously it was an ancillary task they did when clients asked them.
We are however looking for more work to get us back up to capacity so if you know anyone who wants website work we would love to hear from you - or maybe they are not having any business come in from their websites and we offer a Free website evaluation on the phone and tell them why not.
