One big misconception — that in order to make online income and have a thriving business — is the importance of building your own good website. Well, you don’t.
In fact, building an e-commerce website is often just a distraction from the real work that you need to do, which is making money online.
But there still does come a point at which it’s a good idea, and it’s way more affordable and less complicated than you might think.
The Importance of Having a Good Website For Business Is Primarily To Establish Credibility.
Now, every expert will tell you that you must have a website in order to capture leads or for other types of services. But, depending where you are on your biz journey, you might not yet consider yourself a full-fledged business.
- Making a little bit of online income
- Gaining the momentum behind your side hustle
- Establishing your social media presence
However, it’s never too early to reserve your own domain name and build a website as it’s the #1 marketing asset you have in a digital economy.
Americans spend over 23 hours online per week and, not to mention, we are on our mobile devices up to five hours a day. Isn’t that crazy?
So, by now, consumers expect companies and businesses of almost any size to have some kind of online presence. Whether you’re…
- Affiliate marketing
- Starting a blog
- Offering your services as an expert
…you need an online presence — aside from social media.
75% of people say that they judge a person’s credibility based on their website. How’s that for importance?
Hence, when you have a website, the trust factor goes up.
But what does your website need?
This is really simple. All it needs to do is tell us:
- Who you are
- What problem it is you solve
- How we can contact you
- What it is you offer
See, by establishing the credibility of having your own website to send people, you will improve the likelihood of making online income.
