For those of us who've spent any real time on the Internet, it's hard to imagine a business without an online presence. Almost everywhere we look, we find a business URL plastered somewhere on a coffee mug, novelty pen, or refrigerator magnet, and there are several good reasons why.

New Times Require New Approaches

In a virtual place called "cyberspace," geographic restrictions are removed, while global access to billions of consumers literally changes the way and pace in which traditional business is performed. Sales opportunities increase while transaction costs decrease. And computer automation enables the selling processes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week while products are delivered within minutes (and sometimes even instantaneously) at a fraction of conventional delivery expenses.

These are some pretty compelling reasons for any business to set up an online camp; however, the most compelling reason of all is that today's consumers demand it! Never before has there been a more information-hungry market than what we have in this generation of net-connected consumers, and never before has there been such a demand to satisfy consumer queries than now.

Failing to provide a 24-hour automated shopping and delivery service that accommodates the interests of a worldwide market contributes to the success of your competitor. But the benefits of owning a slice of cyberspace aren't exclusive to the consumer market. Owning and operating a website is beneficial to the businesses that run them as well.

Business Websites Benefit Both Consumers And Companies At Once

Business websites also improve the internal processes of the companies that manage them. Customer-to-business communication improves, inventories update in an instant, and even advertisement ROI's manifest quicker -- in real time -- for meaningful results.

The explosion of the Internet has undoubtedly surpassed skeptics' expectations and it has become a forceful component in the way we do business as both producer and consumer. The only next parameter to deal with is molding and shaping its economic potential into an experience that is profitable for the business owner because the potential is seemingly inexhaustible.

But we can not expect to succeed online by using yesteryear's methods. As a society, we must instead change our business into one that is flexible, and embraces non-traditional means. The most effective way to do that is with a website.

TIP: Can you name more than three well-known businesses that don't have a website? Consider this a challenge and try to name a few of the most popular companies without an Internet presence of some sort. Chances are, you won't be able to!
