its best to have an online presence as most consumers these days check online to see what the company is all about, if they dont find anything online they might be suspicious, also its great to know you can contact a company on facebook or twitter if you have any queries

It's important for any sized company to have an online presence as this way they can advertise and encourage sales directly into people's homes with little effort/cost, particularly through social networking. Personal replies to questions asked are often remembered and appreciated by the general public, and this in turn can create a positive (or negative) reaction to the company itself.

And...Online marketing is clearly the future. With rising costs of physical premises, rates etc., having a High Street presence is expensive these days. People are working longer hours, and therefore time for consumership is limited. Trudging round cities looking for deals is a thing of the past. Everything is online these day, and a comparison can be done in minutes, not hours to find the best deals around. Only the giants of business will have premises on the high street soon, the Apple's and the alike. Well, that and banks, and even they are dwindling and directing customers online as much as possible. I work in a business with contact centres, pushing more people to self serve online reduces not on salary costs, but associated costs such as power, heating etc.

It is essential for all businesses in
this economical and technological climate to have an online presence
allowing them to reach multiple types of targeted customers.

This not only provides a key source of
advertising in the 21st century but also allows the
business to choose how it may first be perceived by potential

With more people using the internet to keep up with the latest developments and products from their favourite shops and services, a strong online presence has become increasingly important for businesses.
In recent times, many small businesses who have not invested the time online have suffered when it comes to sales.
The sad demise of the high street has been well documented over recent years as competition from online retailers provided people with an efficient and easy way to shop with just a few clicks of a button.

Liked and tweeted! Having an online presence is important for any company because we live in the digital age and customers can be anywhere at any time, they no longer come to you! So you need a website that is optimised with key search terms so your customers and potential customers can find you, so that you're not loosing out to your competition. I work in marketing so I should know ;-) xx

Philoutube

At the question, why to have an online presence:
- Whatever the company is an ecommerce website or not, the presence online is important as it helps to develop notoriety and show to all customer its range of products/services offered.
Small of or Big companies... The ROI is easy to see for the communication/marketing. Creating its website is cheaper than other media channel, quicker to get results if the website is well developed (SEO purpose).

-Customer behavior is also to take into account in a cross channel strategy as customer may compare first online before contact/purchase.

But at the end... There are so many reasons to have an online presence :-)

Why do you think it’s important for any sized company to have an online presence?

Because going online is the most effective way by far to get your voice heard, you can reach out far and wide on the internet whereas if you just market offline alone you are extremely limited to the amount of people who will 'see' you. You can also maintain a better customer - business relationship with the people that are the most important to the success of your business.

Being online allows easy access to your products and company rather than the customer applying for catalogues or trawling paper directories, and in the meantime finding a competitor company that is online.

Why do you think it’s important for any sized company to have an online presence? Because they would be foolish not too. You can not be in business these days and not communicate to your customers through an online website or online shop. Websites and social media pages are the future for all growing businesses.

By being online it helps to increase company's profile and grow. It also helps to reach bigger consumer market. Online presence is a cheaper self advertising. Consumer can share positive feedback and a company can gain more referrals! However it is important to provide high quality product and it is better to understate and exceed consumer expectations rather than over state and under deliver...

Bex Southcombe

Why do you think it’s important for any sized company to have an online presence?

Most people these days turn to the internet to find any information they need. It makes everything so much easier and you can do it all at your own leisure. Without an online presence you miss out on a massive part of the market, especially any younger people.

It is extremely important. Many people prefer non face-to-face interactions now and often if a company does not have a website I do wonder if they are legit. If I am looking for something locally I prefer to make enquiries online first before wasting my time in person. You can reach far more people online and people who would have never see a companies product may now see it and buy. An online presence makes a company appear far more professional and better organised.

Aside from the amount of online trade that is generated today , an online presence also gives a more human face to a company if it is done well. It can establish a broader identity above the specifics of the purely business functions - in focus groups and market research companies are often graded on "do you see this company/product as a friend?" or "What human characteristics do you think they have", such a presence helps establish such an image.It also gives the potential for a more immediate response to issues.

Why do you think it’s important for any sized company to have an online presence?

Lots of reasons! These days, the first place people will look up info about your company is online, people want to find your contact details such as phone number & address easily, plus details & opening hours of any stores (if its a retail company) It's important for promoting company awareness & getting your product(s) seen & noticed. Social Media sites are extremely important because if you do something as simple as a competition, then you can raise your companies visibility enormously. Many people who may never have noticed you will come across you & you can gain a lot of new customers quite quickly. Internet is the quickest way to be seen & noticed as a very high number of people spend many evening hours trawling the net so it would be quite a mistake for a large company (or even a small one!) not to have a good Internet presence.

Online presence is the quickest and cheapest way for any business to access a global marketplace. Information can be updated and disseminated to a large audience quicker than traditional advertising / newsletter / publicised routes and at a fraction of the cost. Additionally customers and potential customers feel they have a contact point - particularly through social media (twitter / facebook etc) - whereby they can ask questions and get responses within minutes / hours rather than weeks through the UK postal service!

Anything can go viral in today's markets and being online allows companies to become involved in viral and social media marketing which are becoming extremely valuable tools for many companies to be using. It allows people who may not have come across a company see a friend 'like' or 'retweet' something, meaning the business goes further than simply the local vicinity. It is a tool, not the be all and end of a business, but used correctly, it can be a very valuable tool indeed! X

My answer to the question is: I think it is important in order to keep up with the evolving times. AN online presence is important as it is often the first point of call for an individual from research to purchase to communication. I believe social media to now me as a valid a form of communication as fax or email and if company's 'back in the day' had never got on board with emails or fax, think where they would be now. If company's chose to do the same online they are going to fall behind very quickly.

Why do you think it’s important for any sized company to have an online presence? - Personally unless it was a high street name I wouldn't buy from any business without checking out their website and googling reviews from other customers. It's just the way the world is now!

An online presence now demonstrates how seriously you take your relationship with current and potential customers whether exchanging goods, services, or information. Afterall, most people now interact with the world through a smartphone or tablet and share those experiences whether business or leisure activities.

I think it is important for companies of all sizes to have an online presence because the world is very computer orientated nowadays, and you can get your message or services out far more quicker than before.

Why do you think it’s important for any sized company to have an online presence? Because it makes it easy for their customers to contact them , attracts new customers which in turn leads to more sales / business. It also makes a company look more up to date and professional.

I think having an online presence really allows potential customers to connect with your brand and understand what you're about. I think forging that connection is more valuable than any amount of tradition advertising as it really helps people to fall in love with your company and what you stand for!
