Following are some benefits of using the Internet to increase sales and cut costs. There is much more to the Internet than the basic information we're providing here, these are simply a few ideas to get you thinking. No doubt you will think of more ways your business can use the Internet to gain an edge on your competition as you explore and discover new Web sites; and Acklie Web Design can surely find some additional benefits by getting to know your business.

1. COMPETTIVE EDGE MARKETING: Having your own site on the Web creates and sustains the perception of your company as an industry leader.

2. INCREASE YOUR SALES: The Web is truly a global marketing opportunity. Improve the quality and quantity of customer contacts for a tiny fraction of the cost of television, radio, or print media advertising. How much would you have to spend on media advertising (TV, radio, newspapers, etc.) to make your company known to customers even statewide, much less nationally or internationally?

3. IMMEDIATE CUSTOMER RESPONSE: Business takes place 24 hours a day on the net; online inquiry and order forms let you close the sale now.

Utilize e-mail to create efficient communication between home office and field sales force, or your client base. Save time and money on every phone call that is replaced with e-mail. Think of your valuable phone time that could be saved if clients had direct access to your information without having to call.

5. UPDATE INFORMATION NOW: Unlike traditional printing services, changes to information, specs, and prices can be made available to your clients and sales force in a few minutes, instead of days or weeks. Post product reviews, tests, and independent magazine reports - linked to each product. Web sites can be updated weekly, daily, or even hourly-- whatever suits your needs. Information can be updated as fast as it becomes available.

6. CUT PRINTING AND POSTAGE COSTS: Using a Web site for client and field agent access saves you money. End costly reprinting whenever a document is updated. Disseminate newsletters, annual reports, and client information at a much more attractive rate in an electronic mode using e-mail.

7. STREAMLINE ORDER PROCESSING: Utilize e-mail, the Web, and FTP to transfer new documents and the latest data to field sales agents via downloads. Accept and process orders faster from your sales force via uploads to your server.
