Your Real Employee vs. Your Website Employee
Your website is a vital marketing tool for your business. In most cases, it is the first “employee” that your customers will see. And in others, it is the only “employee” that your customers will ever see. It is probably your only employee that never calls in sick, never has a bad hair day, and never asks for a raise. Instead, your website “employee” is always there. Always working. Always giving your customers information. Always available to take orders. And always presentable in a pretty little online package.
 
Here are some differences between your real employees and your website employee…

1.
Your Real Employee: Calls in sick when it’s nice out to go to the beach.
Your Website Employee: Doesn’t like the sun, the water, the sand, the heat, or the seagulls.
 
2.
Your Real Employee: Has to take time off to help their sick “grandma”.
Your Website Employee: Doesn’t have a grandma.
 
3.
Your Real Employee: Shows up late to work because of a flat tire.

8.

9.

Nothing can replace the need for your business to hire real people to perform specific work functions. But having a website that works properly can alleviate a lot of work related headaches and stress.
