Why does my business need a website?
Why does your business need a website? No matter what type of business you run, a website will always generate you business. It will help promote your products or services and get your message across to prospective customers. It is generally the first place people will look when browsing for things related to what you do so think of it as your ‘shop window’. When walking by a shop window, you see the best of what the store has to offer in order to entice you inside and make a purchase. Therefore, your website should show case the best of what you do.
There are more and more people browsing the internet each day with a group of those people looking for exactly what you have. The more you have on your website, the more your business will show up on search engines. Even if you are a start up or small local business, you can almost guarantee that someone has used a search engine to find your website. If they had tried looking for your site and it didn’t show up, they more than likely went to a competitor instead.
Your website is something that everyone has access to no matter what time of day. They can find out anything from the most basic piece of information to the in depth services or products you might offer. You need to show people exactly how you wish to come across. Do you offer services in certain areas? Are your products shipped around the globe? Do you have any special offers on? All of these things and more should be shown on your website and if they aren’t then you are potentially missing out on a lot of custom.
Now you understand more about why your business needs a website, let’s look at what you need to do to get one.
You should firstly choose a domain name. This will be the address of your website and what customers might type into the URL. It should closely match the name of your business but of course, many addresses are already taken so spend some time researching this. Make sure it is easy for people to spell and remember. Perhaps adding the town name at the end might make it easier for people to find you.
Next, look for a web hosting service. It should be reputable and ideally, well established. Always compare fees and understand which services are included in that fee. Ensure your website is able to grow and accommodate any changes in the future.
Lastly, think about the design of your website. There are so many templates out there but do they cover what you need? Having your website custom made might end up costing you a little more than your average website but it will leave you knowing you have exactly what you are after and no one else’s site will look like yours.
