Bill Gates: “There will soon be a time where if you don’t have a website, you won’t have a buisness”.
It never ceases to amaze how many people still (even in today’s modern internet based world) think that they can get away without having a website or a web presence. So let’s take the time to examine why your business needs a website…
So let’s take the time to examine why your business needs a website
Time was when if you were a business that didn’t have a website it was perfectly fine & acceptable. If you told interested customers “oh we don’t actually currently have a website” – they wouldn’t bat an eyelid – but oh how things have changed!
Nowadays, your business will not be taken seriously if you state the words “Ummmm I don’t actually have a website at present”. This single statement could do your business image untold damage.
A website is the new business card
Back in the day, if you were asked for a business card and you stated that you don’ have one, it would instantly be assumed that you were not really a very serious business person, and this is the near exact same image that not having a website nowadays portrays. Not having a website.
It helps people and potential customers to be able to find out more about you and your company.
I don’t know about you but anytime I come across a company or individual that I have never heard of before, one of the first things that I try to do is to ‘Google’ them in order to try to find out more about them. It’s just a natural thing to do.
If they are legitimate then you would expect to quickly come across their website (hopefully as the very 1st Search Engine result), which will enable you to be able to find out more about them as a company/individual- and possibly even how long they have been in business.
Having a website gives you a platform as well as a voice
Everyone is so obsessed nowadays with being politically correct & not wanting to offend anyone. So much so that it can be hard to get your personal opinion across without fear of repercussions. Having your own website allows you to also a dedicated blog section on there where you are free to express your opinions to your audience and let them know how you think and feel about a particular topic in an open and free manner. You will also then be able to let people know that those who do not agree with your opinion are 100% free to go ahead and just leave your website.
It’s now so darn easy & cost effective
Gone are the days when you have to spend upwards of $1000 in order to have an online presence. Nowadays it won’t cost you anything like this in order to have your own website.
Most people know that okay so cheap and affordable to be able to have an online website that really is no excuse for those who are a genuine and serious business.
As Bill Gates himself eluded to…. having a website is very important to today’s modern entrepreneur. It’s an essential part of any business that wishes to be taken seriously by its customers, and is one of the first things that entrepreneurs should ensure is in place before they even begin to let the world know that their business actually exists.
