Have a Website, or Thinking About One?

When first starting out, businesses have a lot to consider, and a big one is whether or not to have a business website. These days, the answer, more than not, is a resounding YES. How else is your business going to make you #1 on Google? It’s not without a professional website and professional web writing for SEO. If that is true in your case, the next question is how to go about it. When it comes to building a website, there are so many options that it’ll make your head spin.

Money as a major concern to most businesses when they are first starting out, so should you go with a free, build-it-yourself website, or should you hire a trained web master to help you create a professional website? What are the differences, you might ask.

There are many places you can get a free website, but I’ll mention just two: Weebly and Wix. And what is wrong with a free website? For beginners, their name is on your URL. So instead of socialwrites.com it would be something like socialwrites.weebly.com. Not cool. Also, are you professionally trained to do all the work to make your site look professional? I’m not saying you couldn’t do it, but will you have the time with all of the other things you’re trying to do to start a new business? There is an option on these sites to get your site without their name attached to it, but it will cost you, and you’ll still do all the work to put your site together yourself.

The best option is to hire a professional webmaster to put your site together for you. Yes, it will cost some money, but they will put together a professional website in a fraction of the time, and you will own the site. Your name and only your name will appear at the top. Some webmasters will write the contents of the pages for you for an extra fee and others will expect for you to come up with material yourself. That is where a web writer comes in.
