If you haven’t realized that most professionals and business owners are now online, better file bankruptcy. Kidding, but yes, going online is must if you want to increase your sales. But heck, why you should go online anyway? Check out these 7 no-brainer reasons below.

1. Because people are going online (obviously).


Did you know that Philippines had 4,000 Internet users when it started in 1994 which grew to more than 30 million up to this moment and is still counting. You might have been too focused on your offline campaign that you didn’t realize how big the online market is.

2. Because you want your product to be available online.

In the Philippines alone, there are 37 million Filipinos who are on the Internet, 34M of which are on social media which makes Internet a good place to promote and sell your product.

3. You want your brand to make a BUZZ online


Online conversation is the new word of mouth. You want your brand to be on top of the mind for online consumers.

4. You want to know what your customers are talking about.


And since sharing is easy, now you can easily understand what your customers want.

5. Because you want to stay ahead of the competition.

Not everyone in Cebu is online yet. Now is your chance to make a name for your brand online.

6. You want to build an online community.


Building a community is not just an offline effort, but also online. When online, you want people to be talking about how good your product is and create loyal customers. Building these kind of followers is the essence of going online.

7. You want to build trust and credibility.

Get to know your audience and interact with their concerns, one by one. In this way, you’ll be able to connect to them to attend to their concerns, thus gaining their trust.
