|Why You Need an Attractive Website For Your Business Immediately by henrykene(m): 8:32am On Mar 18|
Inside: People are saying you don't need a website for your business? Here are 5 super important reasons you shouldn't listen to them.
Lately, I've been hearing quite a few people talk about how you don't need a website to be successful. Some of them point to themselves as a great example.
What they don't tell you is that they started out back in 2004, when most people were using the internet on a desktop computer (remember your legs sharing under-desk space with a bulky CPU tower?), and flip phones were all the rage.
Listen, that ERA is long gone and yes, your business needs a well designed and attractive website.
Below are the very important reasons why:
#1 It helps your business look legit: Think back to the last time you tried to look up a business, and nothing came up.
Google showed an old Yelp review and a Facebook page that hadn't been updated in years, but no website.
Does the business still exist?
Is it open now?
What's their address or phone number?
Worse, you're now likely thinking this business isn't even legit.
So you'll move on to the next one. The one that has a website. The one that answers your questions.
Your potential clients? They do the same thing. Which is why you don't want to get caught out without a website.
Your website does much more than answer basic questions, though.
#2 It tells your story: A well-designed website takes visitors on a journey – from “huh, interesting!” to “oh wow, who knew?” to “OMG, I need this!”
It does so by weaving your brand story throughout the pages and articles on your website, keeping visitors reading and reading until they're ready to commit.
No need for people to guess or to try piecing your story together from your social media posts.
On your own website, you control the narrative. You can tell visitors what you do, who you do it for, and why your offers matter.
But wait, there's more! �
#3 It positions you as an expert: You can have articles on your website, where you share your favorite tips, help people avoid mistakes, and detail case studies.
Often, these are the types of articles people look for on Google.
When they come to your website, you get to dazzle them with your knowledge and wit.
They may not be ready to do business with you right away, but they will often remember you as the expert who helped them with their immediate problem, and they'll return when they're ready.
And those old posts will still bringing you businesses through your website because…
#4 It has longevity: Pages and posts on your website have a lot of staying power. Many posts written years ago are still bringing in traffic now.
Similarly, posts you'll write this year will likely bring you traffic a few years from now.
You don't get that with social media.
People don't go looking through your Instagram account for that one post you wrote two months ago, let alone something over a year old.
And it's not like Facebook is serving up anything over a few days old. Your LinkedIn posts get maybe a week. Twitter is more like minutes.
#5 It's your own asset: Your social media accounts can disappear in an instant. You don't own them.
Many people learned that the hard way when Facebook suspended or even shut down their accounts recently.
But you do own your website.
At least, you do when it's on WordPress. You can pack it up and move it to a different hosting company, or even your own server if need be.
And you don't need to worry about offending an algorithm.
Have a business, but no website yet? I can easily help you fix that right away.
