People often wonder ‘do I need a website for my small business?’ My answer is that nowadays, no matter how big or small your business is, you definitely need to have an online presence in the form of a website.
Anyone in the business world knows that when someone asks, “What’s your website address?” you better have one to give to them. They don’t want to hear “I don’t have one yet” or “I’m working on it”. Having an established, professional looking website, always scores credibility points for you as a business owner.
Having your own website is like having your own property set up on the world wide web. Your website should be both mobile compatible and desktop compatible.
But remember that it is far better not to have a website than to have a non-professional, cheesy looking site. You will do much more damage to your business by portraying your company in a less than satisfactory light.
If you don’t have the knowledge, skills or abilities to produce an outstanding design yourself then hire a professional web designer. Web designers aren’t cheap, but there is no reason why you can’t build out your own professional looking website. If you want to go the do it yourself way, you can click here and I will show you the easiest way to do it, and it won’t cost you a cent.
What if I Don’t Have The Time To Learn To Do It Myself?
If you visit Fiverr.com, you will find many people there who are skilled and who can help you to get your website up and running for a reasonable price. You can save yourself time and money if you have your website copy written. Provide your web designer with the text and the layout of how you want it to look. Offer color schemes. Send links to other sites that you admire. Of course, you never want to copy someone else’s site, but by giving your designer an idea for the theme you’d like to have, the process will go much more quickly and smoothly.
The more work you can do up front yourself, the easier it will be on your pocket book. Many designers work by the hour. If you want to have lots of links in your website, spell that out clearly to the person who is doing the work. And make sure to forward any photos you want to use to your web designer. Web designers can’t read your mind, but most will do as many edits as you like, however you will be charged for each edit.
Although there are many web design companies out there, just think of the fun you can have setting up your own professional website yourself. Click here to read how you too can have a professional WordPress website set up at no cost to you in the next hour.
Do I Need A Website For My Small Business?
The answer is, of course, a resounding yes, but as I explained above there are ways and means to do it yourself without breaking the bank.
