Obviously, we are in the age of computers and the Internet. Customers are ultimately looking for the simplest, most reliable, and least consuming way to get the goods and services they need.
Therefore, a Web strategy is important to keep up with the changing world and stay ahead of potential competition. Customers that buy on the Internet do not care where a business is located, so it is important that a name and a reputation be established that customers can rely on whether it is in the store or on the Internet.
Building Blocks has a sensational program for their members. It allows a member to establish their own website with member information and use the established product background linked to buildingblockshardware.com. Customers can then go on line and order products very easily. This is a program that a normal small business could not afford to invest in.
The Internet is also a valuable communication tool with customers. The site includes a custom home page, store location along with a map, store hours, services and selection, in-store coupons, 1,000 item in-store catalog, and as many custom pages as a member needs.
