The changing communication and data transfer technologies of the internet today are effecting the way many companies do business. Depending on the nature of your organization, the benefits of internet presence will vary.
We can help your organization take advantage of the internet by developing a web presence that promotes your company on the web, fits your budget and helps your company gain a great audience. Here are several benefits of internet publishing.
EXPAND REACHABLE MARKETS
With a presence on the internet companies gain access to previously unreachable local, regional and international markets. Existing and potential customers can access your site from the office of at home on their own schedule with not assistance from you.
INFORMATION DISTRIBUTION
Provide information to the public about your organization's products and services, allow visitors to browse a museum, or guide users through a presentation. Whether for gathering or distributing information, a web presence is a great place to engage and share information with your audience.
VALUE ADDED SERVICE
Establish a pro-active customer service oriented image of your company by providing useful information to your customers online, such as technical publications, examples of product use, instructions and other value added bits of information. Establish your company as technologically savvy in the forefront of communications today.
USER INFORMATION REQUEST
Make it easy for customers to request specific information from your company, place a purchase order or send an e-mail with user request forms. Your site can also gather valuable customer information with customer reply surveys.
EASY LOCATION OF DATA
Allow visitors easy access to information in your site by utilizing a search engine that can search the pages within a site or a specific relational database.
CONSISTENT MARKETING
Utilize your existing communication, marketing and outreach strategies on the internet to establish a consistent communications approach. Integrating current or existing marketing assets like logos and customer artwork, can help save on web development costs.
SAVE MAILING COSTS
Begin to reduce the cost of paper, printing and mailing by providing the same material digitally on-line. Distributing information on the internet may not eliminate the need for hard copy promotional materials, but if you've ever had to update a printed brochure you'll appreciate the cost savings associated with internet publishing.
CHANGING CONTENT IS EASY
After the design and architecture of a web site has be established and produced, making revisions and adding or deleting content from a site can be very cost effective. We provide site maintenance plans if desired or we'll share options to educate your staff about basic web page structure and maintenance.
UTILIZE EXISTING NETWORKS
Take advantage of established industry specific networks to attract the visitors you desire. Promote your presence with links to your site from related resource lists, internet catalogs and the best search engines available. Use e-mail updates to specific usergroups to promote changes and additions to your site.
PROJECT AND WORK SHARING
Connecting your web site to an FTP server allows your audience to share documents by downloading and/or uploading files and folders in application specific formats. For collaborative projects this can be a great file management and quality control document sharing solution. Whether within one building or spanning large geographical areas, FTP sites are easily password protected.

EXPAND REACHABLE MARKETS

  • Okay, I will agree to this stance.


INFORMATION DISTRIBUTION

  • Sometimes it is not a great idea to do this because what if someone tries to steal your ideas/work and make claim to themselves for it?


VALUE ADDED SERVICE

  • This may be nice to do, but only simple based things ought to mentioned for safety reasons.


USER INFORMATION REQUEST

  • Not sure what this is meaning? Could you elaborate a bit please?


EASY LOCATION OF DATA

  • Unless it is for business purposes, this is not the safest way to approach anyone’s interest.


CONSISTENT MARKETING

  • Do you have evidence for this one?


SAVE MAILING COSTS


  • If everything is done through the Internet for the sake of saving mailing costs, no point because there are times when mail is lost and all data/information can be lost and no way to be accessible. SO even if it takes not using the Internet for this purpose only, it would be reliably exceptional.


CHANGING CONTENT IS EASY

  • Okay. Acceptable.


UTILIZE EXISTING NETWORKS

  • Why would someone want to do this though?


PROJECT AND WORK SHARING

  • How can a person/ user be certain that it is surely protected?

Reasons for voting decision: Pro conceded to some points that indicated the Internet was somehow useful. She also never gave any arguments. I thought Pro had less errors in the S/G category. Con did say thanks to Pro in the last round, which counts as her new shiny conduct point. Also, Pro plagiarized all his arguments: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080121232505AAXIa7W
