Go big online: doing business online with the help of Combell
Business owners and self-employed workers are often reluctant to take their businesses online, for many different reasons. Is this not too much work? Do you not need to be an IT specialist to achieve this? And is it not too expensive?
These are obvious questions, but doing business online is not that difficult. Especially if you have a good partner. And it just so happens that Combell is such a great partner!
Taking your business online almost always pays off. Because why would you place an advertisement for only a few readers of the local newspaper, when a multitude of potential customers can find you just as easily via Google?
And it may sound like a cliché, but if you take your business online, the world will be at your feet. If you sell products, you can offer them on your web store around the clock, and even sell them to people living on the other side of the world!
Any modern entrepreneur knows that the days of the Yellow Pages are long gone: the Internet is where you need to be! But what is the best way to go about it? Combell is happy to help you find out.
Starting your online business... just like that!
Your presence on the Internet is like your new business card. It is often the first impression people get of your business, so it better be a good one!
To go online with a website, blog or web store, you do not need much: a domain name, hosting and a website or web store.
Your domain name is your address on the Internet: it is the place where your customers can find you.
Your hosting is the foundation for your website: just as you need disk space on your personal computer to be able to store a file, you need hosting on the Internet (disk space on a server provided by your hosting provider) to be able to store your website.
Some people choose to have their website or web store created by a web designer, but nowadays it is just as easy to create your website or web store yourself using a website builder.
Not sure how to get started? Combell will help you!
Growing your business without growing pains
Doing business is all about having the guts, as we at Combell have known for over 20 years now. The greatest challenge that existing companies are facing today in the new (yet hopefully still roaring) twenties is to be able to achieve healthy digital growth, without skipping any steps or being inaccurate in the process.
One of the essentials to your digital growth is the migration to the cloud. While that may sound a bit futuristic, 'the cloud' means storing your data in a remote data centre, allowing your employees to work from anywhere.
Because if your workforce is growing, it is important that all colleagues can collaborate efficiently at all times. You can do this using handy software solutions such as Microsoft 365, but also by storing your data in the cloud.
Are you afraid to switch to the cloud? With Combell, it is child's play!
Go for the greatest digital success story
'The greatest digital success story'. That almost sounds too good to be true, but it is what we at Combell do our best to achieve every day.
Because, of course, even large companies face digital challenges. Besides efficiency, security is perhaps the biggest.
Just think of all the personal data of your customers. If those were to be leaked, it would seriously harm your reputation. That is why proper data management on reliable (secure!) servers is a must.
And speaking of disasters, every company needs a Disaster Recovery Plan: a well-thought-out scenario of what happens when a disaster (such as fire, flood or hacking) damages your systems.
And that Disaster Recovery Plan also starts with a reliable IT partner. Three guesses who we suggest 😉 !
Combell: everyone's partner
In short, whatever stage your company is at, Combell is a reliable partner in every step of the way. We focus on your digital growth, so that you can concentrate on what is most important to you: the efficiency and growth of your business.
