Why do You need a WEBSITE?
Most businesses today need a website. Even if you don’t sell products online, you want people to find you in the way that they most commonly search. People are using their computer or portable device to search for your service or your business by name. They want to know: “Who are you?”, “How long have you been in business?”, “What services or products do you offer?”. They want to find a phone number or form to contact you. Most of all, they want the reasurance that you exist…that you are a reliable business.
An online presence can do that for you. A well designed site will do even more. It can answer those questions for them at all times of the day or night, even when your business is closed.
Your website works for you day and night.
It provides information to your clients without you ever uttering a word.
Remember that when writing your text, sell your business, convince people you are a legitimate and viable resource for what they need.
You need to start with gathering information that is important to share with your clients. You will need contact information, business location, services and or products that you offer. You will need images to go with your site, logo, and or product photos. Most sites have a minimum of 4-5 pages: Home, About us, Contact Us, Services/Products. From that starting point you can ad as many pages as you need to get your message across. Give your clients everything they may want to know and more, then convince them to get it from you!
Once you have an idea of what content you want you will want to think about what kind of style your site should have. Search online, look for anything that appeals to you, make notes. Determine why you like the sites that you do. Save this information for discussing with your website designer or for your own use later.[/lgc_column][lgc_column grid=”40″ tablet_grid=”40″ mobile_grid=”100″ last=”true”]
