Why Make A Website?
If you’ve got your own business, then you should really consider making a website. There are all sorts of benefits your business can get out of moving to the online world!
When you have a website, you are allowed to be a show-off! That’s what it’s all about. It’s time to take centre stage and show what your business has to offer.
Companies spend millions creating and distributing booklets. If you have a website, not only does this save you mega money, but you save time and resources too. It may even be an easier way for your customers to find out more about you and your products.
Everyone one uses the internet now, whether it’s on their phone, computer, laptop or tablet, and over at least 90% of people have contacted a website in some way in the last 6 months. So if you’re not online, you could potentially lose a lot of future clients.
Easy to edit
Having a website is also an excellent way to keep track of the work you’re doing, and have done, as a business. You can easily assess your work and even progress as your business builds. It’s so easy to change with just a few clicks of a button. Unlike if you had made brochures, and then realized after you sent them all out that you didn’t like the layout of Page 12!
It is so much easier to communicate with your clients; you just have to make sure you have a page with your contact details on, so that would be your company number and email address. (And any other way you wish to be contacted.)
If you’re think this may be too difficult to do yourself – don’t worry! There are people out there who create websites for a living, just tell them about your business, your vision, etc. As much as you can so your idea can be made to uniquely fit with your business.
If you’ve already started your website but are doubting it, there are professionals that can give you things like a free website health check to really see if it’s up to standard. From there you know what needs to be improved.
Having your own website looks professional! Can you imagine if you were holding a seminar to talk about your business and you had people interested, but then someone asks to see your website for more information? You have to tell them you don’t have one! Not only does that look bad, it’ll also make you feel bad.
Owning a website gives you a voice! You can do anything you want with it as long as it benefits your business. You get to have your opinion on things without judgement. And if there is a negative comment or something that you don’t like – delete it!
You’re the boss, it’s your business, you have the right to do whatever you like with it. It’s time to take things into your own hands now.
