You Need A Website – 1 Minute Marketing Tips #4. So you may hear from people every so often that so-and-so “guru” says you don’t need a website. First of all, nothing could be further from the truth in 2018 and beyond. People EXPECT your business to have at least some sort of basic web page.
Gurus = “Goo-Ruse”
Secondly, you are being flat-out lied to and you are being seriously misinformed. But maybe you don’t believe it, to which you should ask this one question; if they don’t need a website, then why are they using one to sell you their lies?
Regardless, here’s some truth…
It’s never been easier to have a business blog
Having a few web pages with a domain name is your central hub for all online marketing. And that’s referring to your own website, not something on Wix, Blogger, Blogspot, or WordPress.com. In fact, you can learn more about that in the article and video, Increasing Blog Traffic – Charles Snyder Raw #101, which addresses this very issue.
However, you should also know that simply having a few web pages and a blog is not enough. Of course, this also ties right in with Domain-Based Business Email – 1 Minute Marketing Tips #3, the previous episode of this series. So you should understand that having your own domain name has more than just one or two advantages.
But the main point here is this; any Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress makes it extremely easy to manage a website. As well as your content too. Smart business owners know it’s a no-brainer. Because if you can use Microsoft Word, you can also easily use WordPress with a little practice.
You Need A Website: conclusion
There’s really no excuse for delaying anymore, but you probably already know this. You can register and purchase a domain name through services like GoDaddy. Better still, the domain names are pretty cheap and there are a lot of options for website hosting.
Finally, if your customers are anything like the average online shopper, they’re highly skeptical of any business that doesn’t have a website! Also, they are highly skeptical of any business that doesn’t have reviews.
