Do you need a website?
Yes, of course you do! A website is your home on the internet and plays an important role in helping you meet your business goals.
Some very good reasons to have a website:
Introduce Yourself: A website is a welcoming place to showcase you and your organization, products or services before customers come to your establishment. It’s like a peek in the window before you open the door.
Credibility: A credible website goes a long way in reassuring users that you are trustworthy and knowledgeable. FAQs, tesimonials, and useful links are beneficial to your website’s credibility.
Communication: A website gives your users clear, constant and easy to use ways to communicate. Contact forms, email address, phone number and social media links are standard on any website. Map, directions and hours for businesses with a physical storefront or office.
Announcements: A website keeps customers in the loop with sales, events, changing hours, new products or projects, remodeling, etc.
Team: A website introduces team members. Show the human side of a business with information on who they are, how they contribute, and a tiny bit of personal things.
“But I have Instagram and Facebook”
Instagram, Facebook and et al. are awesome tools for getting your name out there and keeping people engaged. That is what they do best and that is what their websites are built around. Your website should be built for you and around what YOU do best. Use social media sites to drive traffic to your website, not as a replacement for your website.
