Web Design Services – Do You Even Need Them In 2019?

It’s 2019, social media marketing and Facebook business pages are the norm. You’re planning on starting a business or you have already started a business and you don’t know what route to take:

  • Get a website or
  • Focus on Facebook business tools and grow my business that way

Of course you should heavily focus on Facebook business tools and here are some reasons why:

  • Low marketing costs
  • Increased exposure
  • Your friends can spread your message for free
  • It’s already mobile ready

However, I have made a video about this before and at the risk of repeating myself, “DON’T FALL INTO THE TRAP OF NOT HAVING & MAINTAINING A WEBSITE”.

 

Web Design Services – They Get You Noticed!

When we need a product or service, we very rarely search for this on Facebook or Instagram etc. Both you and I will instantly open up a browser and search using a search engine – whether on desktop of mobile device, we all search in the same way.

For example, imagine you own a business grooming dogs in County Durham, England but you don’t have a website as you’ve favoured building a business on Facebook alone.

A customer who lives in County Durham has a beautiful, cute fluffy labradoodle dog that they absolutely adore. They’re going to treat their furry friend to a well-deserved makeover… because, they’re worth it!

 

They whip out their device and open Chrome (or Safari – I’m not anti-iPhone). They type into the search bar “Dog groomers near me”. They’re instantly rewarded with pages of search results and its highly unlikely these results will be Facebook pages. If you do want to target customers on Facebook, you’ll need Facebook Ads – but that’s another blog for another day!

If you don’t have a website, you’re missing out on this customer. They will find one of your competitors and they will give them their business… potential repeat business and you’ve missed out on it.
