Should I Choose A Website Over Facebook Page by Akinola1990(m): 9:58am On Dec 29, 2017
Did you know that over 40% of small businesses don’t have a website?*

There are many reasons companies choose not to create a website. For example, many small business owners can’t afford the cost of building a website, and their lack of time and technical expertise make it less they’ll build one themselves. 

Instead, some businesses opt to build a Facebook page or utilize other social media as their main online presence instead of creating a website.



But, Facebook Isn’t the Best Solution

While Facebook pages are an easy way for many small business owners to build an online presence, there are many reasons why this isn’t the best solution for most businesses.

For instance the URL you’ll need to give people to access your page is very long, in the format of Facebook.com/alotoftext.

In addition, you don’t get email with a Facebook page, so you won’t have a professional email address to put on your business card. People who rely on Facebook tend to give out gmail, yahoo, or even hotmail email addresses to customers and clients.
Without a website, you give the impression that you don’t take your business seriously.

Also, Facebook only shows your posts to some of your customers and fans. You have to pay advertising fees to reach more of them. So while pages are free to set up, building an audience costs quite a bit of money on an ongoing basis.

You don’t actually “own” your web presence; you are at the mercy of Facebook and the decisions it makes to boost its bottom line.You can’t reach customers who don’t use Facebook.

The bottom line: if you want your business to grow and be successful, a dedicated website is the best solution. And once you build your site, you can link it to your Facebook page to build your audience twice as fast.
