Does my business need a website?
Vendors who sell their services to create a website is increasingly popping up. Starting from making company profile services, and E-Commerce is integrated with the Payment Gateway, have sprung up. Vary the price offered, ranging from hundreds of thousands of Dollars to millions of Dollars. However, I often ask this to colleagues who want to create a website to me:
such important website, well?
Before you throw your money that has been earned with great effort to create a website, here are the things you need to consider if you want to create a website:
Domain (per 1 year)
Hosting (per 1 year)
Setup service + installation + configuration Website (when required)
Maintenance (by period)
Search Engine Optimization (by period)
I didn't say that that website is not important. In my opinion, the most important is how when consumers search for a desired product, stores we appear in the search so that consumers shop at us.
Here is the solution I recommend
Leverage existing marketplace as your business partner
Kaskus FJB is one marketplace, including Tokopedia, OLX, Bukalapak, and many more other Marketplace.
Why is the marketplace?
By relying on the Marketplace, you can register your product and selling it for free, and let the Marketplace owners to exercise the administration of the website such as:

Utilizing social media as your medium of communication with customers.
In my opinion, customer feedback is also important in bringing up a business. Consumer complaints usually come from loyal customers loyal to transact business with you. They could just as easily leave your store and move on to other stores, of course you do not want this to happen, isn't it?
By utilizing social media as a communication medium, hopefully you can figure out the user experience while shopping at your store.

Starting from response time, packaging, delivery order, and others will force you to constantly evolving your service quality.

Thus, each new consumers who want to shop can see the quality of your business, trust and good relations established between the consumers with the seller, will make new consumers to decide to transact with your store. Customer satisfaction is the key. Satisfied customers who will share their experiences shopping in your store to colleagues, relatives, and their networks.
