Why you need a Website
If you do a Google Search for “why do you need a website” as of today it returned About 6,040,000,000 results – OMG!
If you have any kind of product or service, the answer is probably yes so we will waste no time on this one.
Because the internet is so incredibly powerful and unlimited as to what you have available to you it can be information overload.
The best quote I ever read, that makes this point perfectly is, “Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant” a quote by Mitchell Kapor.
The typical scenario when someone is trying to make the transition to going online, is they research it to death, and get so much information they can’t move forward.
Here is the best thing you can do to get started.
The only thing you need to do immediately is decide what you want to call yourself online like www.paintbrushes.com. Once you find a domain that is available, purchase it immediately! If you change your mind, or come up with something better later, fine! You can have as many of these as you want all pointing to the same site. Also, no matter what else you do, this will be the foundation of everything else you will need, and it does not matter if you do the work yourself or hire someone.
One place I use for this is Godaddy, because they are usually the cheapest, and I like their tech support, but use anybody you want, it does not matter!
If you are not sure what you would need or do with a website, here are a few things to consider.
Its the most affordable way for you to tell people who you are and what you do.
Its where people will be looking for your product or service.
Its the best place for you to answer your customers or visitors most frequently asked questions.
And finally, you can be sure if you have any competition, they will have a website!
