Why a Business Website?
I’m sure that if you have a business you have competition. And I’m sure when you think about the top dog in your area of business, you wonder, how do they stay so busy and get so many customers? They have a “tremendous visible online presence”.
I can assure you that the successful business that you admire or despise has a website and all the extras that go with it. Marketing, SEO, CRM, and a great-looking and well-functioning website.
In the modern business world, very few people will find you, your services, or your products if you don’t have a visible online presence.
The old adage is still true, “It Takes Money To Make Money”. If you want your business to be successful, you first have to have something that others want or need, and then you need to let them know about it. Your business website can do that, it’s an investment, so invest in it and your business will grow.
If you’re only 70% sure you want your business to succeed and aren’t willing to invest in your company’s future, then don’t read past this notice.

Marketing Your Website
In the old days of business in order to get customers, you had to run newspaper ads, maybe get an ad in the Yellow Pages (Business Phone Book). Send out mailers and hand out business cards, go door to door selling your services and products. If you had deep pockets, you ran ads on the radio and TV.
A few things have changed since then and marketing is one of those things. Marketing has become obtainable to all businesses big or small with just about any budget. The strategies have changed as well, and having an online presence is a key factor in today’s marketing business success.
Your Website Is Your Marketing Advantage!
Your website is usually the first place that people looking for services or products will find you, (Online). Make it count!
Your website is your marketing hub. All things in online marketing go back to your website. Social Ads, link to your website or landing pages. Online Ads link to your site. People using search browsers like Google, Bing, and others will use links going to your website.
This is where people come to find out more about you and your business, they use chatbots to converse with you, and they use forms on your site to sign-up for more information or to contact you. They can find your business phone number here and all the information they need to decide if your product or service is a good fit for them. This is your chance to shine, the customer’s first impression of your business. Your website is the best marketing tool you have.
