Looking at the current stats, it’s easy to see that there is a lot of work to be done in educating small businesses on the reasons why they need a website. Many have been bamboozled by the flashing lights and jargon, and it has become a complex task that they’ve put on the back burner.
Every business needs a website! It’s your modern day business card, yellow pages listing and DL glossy brochure all rolled into one. It helps your customers find you and know that you are a bona fide business.
You may just need a simple one-page website, with your name, contact details and an image that represents your business. Or a comprehensive website filled with information about your product range and services, complete with hi resolution images and video.
What are the options?
- DIY: There are several available options that let you build your own website, by paying an annual or monthly fee for hosting and ongoing maintenance. A couple of popular ones are Squarespace and Wix, each with their own features and pricing plans. Remember though that DIY comes with a learning curve. You’ll need to weigh up whether the time involved away from your core business is going to be worth it or not. Hint.. false economy :)
- Go Professional: Seek out a proven web agency to design and build your customised solution, that will stay with you long term. Costs vary and to be honest, it’s very much a jump in and learn experience. Just don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions at the start. And if the answers don’t make sense to you, that’s your cue to move on.
