Need a website, but have a few questions? Hopefully most of them can be answered here. If not, let me know, and I'll be more than happy to answer them any way I can!
A website is a good way to display your products and services online for others to see.
Not quite. A Facebook page is a great way to help market yourself, but search engines don't crawl Facebook and Twitter well enough. Having your own website, and submitting them to search engines like Google and Bing is a much better, and easier way to get your site found on the Internet.
Facebook is setup for quick posts. With a business you want to showcase your products and services. It is a lot easier for the search engines to crawl your site than your Facebook page.
With a website, you also get Google Analytics. This allows you to see how many people are visiting your site, how long they stay, what pages they visit, where they are located, and much more. This is a very helpful tool.
You also want to stand out. Besides your photo and cover photo, all Facebook pages look the same. The content will be different, but the look and feel will all be the same. People generally are very visual. Facebook is great for keeping people up to date on changes, promoting your services, but not the greatest at first capturing peoples attention. That's where your website comes in.
Once the site is completed, an account will be setup with both Bing and Google for you. Your sitemap will then be submitted to them, and they will then begin to crawl your site. The site will then be submitted to a few other search engines as well.
If you have a business, with a business location, all of that will be submitted to Google Maps, Bing Maps, and a few others as well. Your store hours, phone number, and address will be sent to them, to be displayed whenever someone does a search for your services and/or products. If you have an E-Commerce website, a Google Merchant account will also be setup. This allows you to submit your products to Google Products.
Yes I can! We can always have a chat through email, Skype, or phone. While it's often nice to meet in person, communication through the internet can be just as easy. Or, even easier. There is no need to leave the house. Just sit back, relax, and chat.
