As an entrepreneur, you are at your best when establishing and growing businesses. You probably love taking an idea and growing it to exponential heights. The growth of a business is however dependant on a lot of things the most important of these being marketing. Marketing is a process that will get you customers that you can then sell to. Getting the marketing process right is the first step towards closing a lot more sales which is what every entrepreneur is looking for.
Assuming that you are buying a website to promote your products and services, and then there are a few things that you will need to consider before you decide to buy a website for your new business. You will need to find a reliable host for your upcoming website. I say reliable because there are a lot of hosting companies out there that may be cheap but will not give you quality lasting service. Before launching your website, you also need to be clear about the purpose for your website. Is it for Marketing or are you jus setting up a website to give further information about your organization- a brochure website.
These two kinds are completely different and therefore will have different designs and make up. You should also make up your mind as to what kind of an experience you want your visitors to have once they find your website as the answer to that question will also affect the layout and make up of your website.
So now that you know what you want your website to look like and what purpose it will serve, you have the question of when to launch your website. The time to launch your website should have been yesterday. Any business that doesn’t have a website is leaving a pile of money on the table and here’s why?
Today whenever you need a question answered, you don’t find a book to read or watch TV and hope that someone will answer it. You go to Google, type in the question and something like 49million answers come up and you pick the one that works best for you. Since being an entrepreneur is about answering people’s questions or solving their problems, then you want to be that answer that a person finds when searching in Google or any other search engine. This would be impossible without a website, a website that is designed to provide these answers. In this day and age a website is the most powerful marketing tool because people spend a lot more time online than they do with their families, than they do reading books or even watching TV.
Google has replaced newspapers; Facebook and Twitter have replaced hanging out with friends. If you can create a good website and position it correctly, you would get an endless stream of customers for your particular niche.
So the right time to launch your website would be right now, if you haven’t already.
