Online Auctions - Member Dealers can turn unwanted inventory into cash, and bid on closeouts by manufacturers.
Maximize Staff Efficiency - By referring most inquiries to the website, you free up your staff from mundane questions. For example: what services you provide, what areas do you service, what products do you sell, etc.
Market Expansion - The World Wide Web is global. By having a website, you are opening up your store to the world.
Marketing - A website is less expensive then a decent yellow page ad, but much more flexible. Unlike a print ad, you can change your message on the website regularly.
Maximize Exposure - If you only have 5 minutes with a prospective client, a URL on your business card assures you that you left the client all the information they will need, as well as a way to access your product line.
Level Playing Field - A website can help the smaller store compete with the larger chain stores.
