I have a brick-and-mortar business. Why do I need a website anyway?
More and more businesses are realizing that they need to have an online presence even when they are located in a physical building. Why? Most people no longer rely on the Yellow pages or phone books to find businesses any more. It’s easier and quicker to do a search online. If you don’t have an online presence, you’ll be overlooked. Also, many potential clients may be put-off about doing business with you if they can’t “look you up online”. Having a website presence shows them you are probably a viable business, who plans on staying open. It gives you credibility.
I’m an artist—why do I need a website?
Having an online presence gives you one more way to connect with your audience and create loyal fans—fans ready to attend your next concert, or art show. And new fans may find you that you wouldn’t have met in person. Think of it as way to grow your potential audience and fan base, and keep them apprised of upcoming events.
Writer friends say I need a website/blog—do I really?
Many agents admit that they do check out a writer’s online presence when considering a proposal or manuscript. This is especially true for non-fiction writers. Agents want to see the write’s platform—will it help sell books? And today more and more writers are independently publishing. It’s imperative to get your books out to as wide an audience as possible. Having a website and blog give you a big advantage, and today it’s an absolute necessity.
When should I set an online presence?
Just as it takes time to grow a business or a readership, it takes time for people to find you online. Make sure you have a website to direct people to when you start your business—to give you credibility and a place where they can find you again and again. Why not build interest in your book before it’s available? Get people excited about your upcoming art show, or music venue. Use your Blog to grow a large readership while your search out an agent for your manuscript.
