Why your business needs a Website. Website work. No matter whay your business or profession, a website can generate business, promote goodwill among customers and prospects, and deliver strong marketing messages - whether your business is small, large or in-between, well established or brand new. 30 PERCENT OF CONSUMERS WON’T CONSIDER A BUSINESS WITHOUT A WEBSITE. Your website is your number one marketing asset because we live in a digital age. Our people spend on average 23.6 hours online per week and are on their mobile devices for up to five hours per day. By now, consumers expect companies to have an online presence (including a website) and will consider a company that DOESN’T have one as less professional.
Lots of business owners assume that having a social media profile for their business is enough. Maybe you already have a Facebook page and some pretty good reviews on social media (or at least no one has called you the “worst restaurant ever”). That’s great.
But there are some problems with this strategy. First, you’ll always be dependent on the social media platform you choose. Algorithms change, rules change, and what’s working one day might not work a few weeks from now (as many businesses who depended on Facebook have recently learned). If you have a website, it belongs to you, and you control the content and the message. Part of the reason you started your own business is so that you don’t have to follow other people’s rules—so why would you just do what a social media platform tells you to?
Trends change, too. If your customers are on Twitter today, they might be on Snapchat or a new platform that none of us have even heard of tomorrow. As people switch from one tool to the next, your website acts as an anchor. No matter what platform customers prefer, they can always find your website in the same place, available to everyone.
A website can cost anywhere from free to upwards of 1000 grand. For example, if you choose to DIY (do-it-yourself) with a platform like SquareSpace, you’ll pay a low monthly fee to lease a spot on their platform. On the other end of the spectrum is a completely custom website from a professional website design company tailored for your business needs. With these, you’re looking at an investment of a few thousand Rands. Do not let a price tag deter you from creating a website. If you’re a one-man operation with zero budget, at least get a basic website that you can jazz up later when you have a better cash flow.
SEO (search engine optimization) is the process of optimizing a website to rank higher than your competition on the best keyword (and keyword phrase) search results. The result is more traffic to the website.
You optimize a website using a combination of: good keyword research on-site: structure, page titles, meta descriptions, headings, content,images, videos, page speed / load time, fixing errors, responsive design, off-site: backlinks, social signals, branding, citations, reputation, reviews
And all of this takes time to accomplish. It’s a lot of technical, grunt work that most people either don’t know how to do or do not want to do. When you make a change on your website one day, it can take a week or more to see the results of that change. Before SEO is done, the website should be evaluated and more or different calls to action should be added to get more conversions with that website’s current/existing traffic. The benefits of this are that the website gets more conversions (leads and sales) right away and then even more when you send more traffic to it.
Search engines are the roadways that allow your site to be found. If search engines cannot find your site, you miss out on incredible opportunities to drive traffic to your site.
SEO is quite cost effective as it can be done once when site is built or afterwards or on continuing basis. On continual basis you’re ranking in search results consistently stays high.
