Make Your Own Website
Use the right tool to make your own website and harness the power of the internet to take your business to the next level.
As a small business you may want to build a website in order to create a low cost presence on the internet. A website portrays your company image, for example it can make your business appear a lot larger than it is and may be important your prospective client base.
But your business website can be so much more than that! Rather than just being a back up to your face to face marketing activities, your website could deliver a host of new revenue streams and at the same still deliver you more clients than you ever could get through face to face meetings.
How do we know? Because this website does the very same for us and it costs us less than $1 per day. How's that for a low cost marketing activity?
We talk to a lot of small business owners who tell us enthusiastically about the websites that they have built using free software and sure enough when we look at them, they look really professional. Ask the same group of people how many site visitors they get or how much business they get through their websites and the answer is invariably “nothing” followed by an embarrassed smile.
You can imagine the look of incredulity on these same faces when I explain that I've had a bad day because I only got 4000 visitors to my site yesterday. No, I'm not joking, 4000 visitors a day is a poor day.
Between us, Louise and I have now built three commercially successful websites that compliment our passions in business and life, they are in the top 3% of all websites globally from a popularity point of view and one (the first one we started) is now in the top 1%
Are we computer nerds? We most certainly are not!
So how did we do it? We used a platform called SBI! (that stands for Site Build It!) and you can do it too. You can make your own website purely to make money on a stand alone basis or as a way of capturing more clients for your traditional offline business……..or you can do a bit of both.
Treat this section of our site as a case study, click on the links below and read about our experiences. Our aim is to explain the positives of making your own website and also the negatives and also why we recommend SBI! as the tool of choice.
