Why use Business Catalyst
Thinking about a new website for your business? Typically there seems to be two extremes when it comes to web design. At the lower end; you can use a website building tool and template, hope you will be able to work out how to modify the website and shoe horn your content to achieve your objectives. Alternatively you can go to a web agency who typically use free open source software like Joomla or Wordpress; and pay anything from a few hundred to many thousands to have the website designed for you.
Trouble is, neither of these solutions provide a fully integrated business and marketing website! PLUS you're left paying for hosting, updates, fixes and new features which can get quite costly, for what is often, little more than a "Brochure-ware website".
Even for very small businesses, there is now a growing need to bring in-house business processes online. You might think "I don't sell products on-line" but you might offer appointments, training, subscriptions or membership services. It could make sense to give customers the ability to log-in, update their contact info, log a support ticket or maybe track progress of a project or order. And when you get customers to login, you have the perfect opportunity to present your latest relevant news and products, up-sell, make announcements, provide contract documents, service terms and so much more.
Perhaps you want to capture certain information from a web form, for example an accountant might need to collect company or employee tax information, why not make this easy for them? You benefit from that data being stored against the customer database record, which is both efficient, secure and reduces admin costs. In fact every time your customer interacts with your website, completes a task, makes a payment or clicks on an email campaign it's all automatically recorded against their CRM record.
That's why we use Business Catalyst at the core of our web solutions, because it provides a complete on-line business solution that is fully managed and updated for you. You can start with just a simple low-cost website solution, implement a powerful marketing solution or upgrade to a complete ebusiness solution including eCommerce and a raft of other powerful features.
