You Need A Website
1 Minute Marketing Tips #4 – You Need A Website. So I hear from people every so often that so-and-so “guru” say you don’t need a website. First of all, nothing could be further from the truth in 2018, people EXPECT a website. Secondly, you are either being lied to or they are seriously misinformed, so don’t give them your money. Last but not least, I can tell you that it has never been easier to have your own business website.
But I’m not talking about just having a Facebook page or a listing on Yelp, here’s why…
Having your own company website with a domain name is the central hub for online marketing. And I’m talking about your own website, not something on Wix, Blogger, Blogspot or WordPress.com. In fact, I just created Charles Snyder Raw #104 – Increasing Blog Traffic, addressing this very issue. However, I will tell you this; simply having a website is not enough.
Of course this also ties right in with 1 Minute Marketing Tips #3 – Domain-Based Business Email, published last week. So I can also share with you that having your own domain name has more than one advantage! Since any Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress makes it extremely easy to manage a website, it’s a no-brainer. If you can use Microsoft Word, you can easily use WordPress too.
You Need A Website NOW!
There’s really no excuse for delaying anymore, but you probably 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. So if your customers are anything like me, they’re skeptical of any business that doesn’t have a website!
