Win a FREE Website For Your Business
One thing that I notice when I look at local businesses online, is that for the most part, the websites are pretty bad. They usually fall into one of three categories:
I built this website myself, isn’t it great!
No, it isn’t great! Your website is the first thing that your potential customers are going to see when they search for you on Google (and they will search for you if they are at all interested in you). Do you want your first impression to take forever to load, not have the right information, and/or be impossible to view on a phone? Nope, you don’t. If you fall into this category, it’s time to get a professionally designed website that goes with the professional image that you portray in the rest of your business.
I had a website designed 8 years ago, I’m good.
Just like anything else, a website needs to be updated. I’m guessing that you wouldn’t want to have a sign in front of your business that has been faded in the sun for the past decade, has a few missing lights, and one or two of the letters are missing. That looks bad because it looks like you don’t care about your business. When you have an outdated website (unfortunately, with how fast technology moves, anything over 3 years old will look pretty dated, anything over 5 years old looks like it was build in the 80s), you are conveying the same message – that you don’t care about your business or you don’t care about your customers.
I don’t need a website!
This may have been true a few years back. You could do just fine with a couple of ads in the yellow pages. But those times are gone – you are more likely to find the yellow pages holding a door open somewhere than to see it being used. The first thing that a potential customer is going to do when they hear about your company is to Google you. They want to look at your website to see what you are all about. If they don’t find your website, they end up thinking that you don’t really exist, that you are not a real business, or that you are a dinosaur – none of those are good options.
