Many people underestimate the value and the potential of having an online presence. It doesn’t matter whether you are a full-time college student or a college professor, an undiscovered artist or a famous movie director, a small business owner or a multi-millionaire. One thing in common is that you need a website no matter who you are or what you do. Below are the top five things you should know and if you take action today you can reap the rewards tomorrow.
- A WEBSITE IS YOUR ONLINE IMAGE AND FIRST IMPRESSION IS EVERYTHING
Today not having a website is like not having a phone number. Your website must build credibility and tell the world who you are and what you do. Having a well designed professional website is essential for getting your message across properly. A badly designed website will turn visitors away and give visitors a bad first impression.
- YOUR WEBSITE IS ONLINE 24 HOURS A DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK, 365 DAYS A YEAR
Visitors can access your website and get the information they need regardless of time or location. By having this around the clock availability you will never miss a potential opportunity. When you are asleep or on vacation your website is always working for you.
- FREE GLOBAL MARKETING AND NEW CUSTOMER GENERATION
We live in a global marketplace and there is no better way to increase your exposure than through your online presence. Not only will you attract local visitors but you will be able to reach a much broader audience nationally and internationally. Most importantly this will increase the number of visitors and customers to your website.
- BUILD AND MAINTAIN CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIPS
With social media becoming the mainstream your website should easily integrate with sites like facebook and twitter. This will allow you to build important customer relationships and reach new people in your existing customer’s social networks. Once you build these relationships you can maintain them through newsletters, promotions, blog entries, status updates, etc..
- SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION AND ANALYTICS
You definitely don’t want to create a website and hope for the best. How is your website performing? Is it attracting visitors? These are important questions that can be answered through the use of search engine optimization to make sure your site shows up in search results and through Analytics which measure your site’s performance in terms of number of visitors, traffic sources, which pages were viewed, etc.
