Do I really need a website for my business?
“I have a social media platform, do I really need a website?” This is one of the several common questions that people often ask. If the question above describes you, I will advise you read this post to the end.
In this present day and computer age, any business that does not have a website is already at a disadvantage! A website is probably the most important marketing tool in your arsenal. Not only because of the impact it can have on your business, but how it affects your marketing methods. Having said that, here are few reasons why you really need to have a website developed, and developed properly.

For the sake of your customers
Social media – is NOT a website
With social media, you are stuck within their rules and algorithm (let’s not get into this), and you are at the mercy of that platforms website. Why do you want to have your business, that you create and run, be at the mercy of another business? You may not stand out on social media, as perhaps another business in the same niche is showing up more than your business.
I describe to most of my clients that a website is like a spiderweb. Your website itself is at the center – this is where everything happens. Each strand outward from the center is the social media platforms. Each of this brings in leads towards your website. You’re not always going to be on your social media app, showing up for your business – but your website will.
Being Present all the time
With a reader-friendly site, you will save yourself from all the FAQs about your services or products. If you are online or not, anyone who desires further details about your business, the product or service you offer can easily access your site to get all the vital information they needed.
Anymore people would much rather research something before reaching for the phone and calling someone. Having a site, allows consumers this ability, and making it more easily available to them assists in their research process.
Build Credibility & Compete Better
There may be easy builders out there that have a drag and drop platform, however the design is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to developing a site.
