Online Presence – Overstated or Understated?As a business owner or marketing executive, you must have already heard so much about online presence that you feel that the whole concept is overstated. But you need to think twice.

Just like success has no exceptions, online presence has none. Moreover, success and online presence cannot be ever overstated.

No business operating in today’s competitive business environment can have enough of online presence as competitors are more than eagerly waiting to be the leader and not the second.

Moreover, a business not opting for online presence may find it that some one else has been maintaining an online presence using its name (intentionally or unintentionally) and that is not at all strange on the Web. For example – If you are running a business with a name ABC Ltd. in the United States and have not opted for online presence and there is a company with the same ABC Ltd. in Asia with an online presence, your potential market may have been explored and exploited by this Asian counterpart using the same name without you even knowing about it.

Let us read about some benefits of online presence to find out if it is overstated or understated.

More than 72 percent of world’s potential customers are on the web today and just 32 percent of businesses are on the web. This means that the demand and supply of online activities is understated and often misinterpreted to say the least. Any business, small or big, can explore new markets and create a distinctive niche but the fear of losing out is something that is still holding many businesses not to shed their offline presence and opt for online presence. The fact that an online presence can help a business gain qualified leads besides retaining existing and attracting potential customers is something that is something often left behind by modern day businesses suggests that online presence is still understated and unexplored.
