The Pandemic Pushed Consumers Online & They’re Not Leaving. Is Your Business Missing Out?

GENESEO, Ill., July 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — When Americans want to buy anything, they start online. The online-first trend has been gaining momentum for years, but it rocketed to prominence during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"For much of the past year, customers were reluctant to leave their homes or visit businesses. As a result, whether they’re buying clothes or finding a plumber, buyers turn to the internet first," said Kim Gehling, President of Team WTI, a digital marketing and web company with nearly two decades of experience. "And Nearly 85% of Americans own a smartphone, which means they constantly have the internet at their fingertips."

Today’s web-savvy customers go online to research products, learn more about companies, read reviews, schedule appointments, and compare competitors. Buyers have made the leap forward, but many businesses have struggled to keep up.

"Business owners are experts in their own industry, but they’ll often admit to being overwhelmed or clueless about their websites, how to market themselves online, or how to improve their rankings in Google searches," said Cindy Whiteman, Digital Marketing Director at Team WTI

"Frequently, business owners tell us they know they’re missing out on potential customers and leads, but they have no idea where to start," added Whiteman. "They may have heard of terms like Search Engine Optimization or Pay-Per-Click advertising, but don’t know what they are or how they can help."

Team WTI’s dedicated team of digital marketing and web experts can provide your company with the online services it needs including search engine optimization, online advertising, social media management, website design and development, and more.

We can provide the digital marketing and web services your company needs in a way that’s clear and easy for you to understand.
