This is the fifth and final article of a series of five posts; here at Clicks & Mortar Websites, we will cover five of the main reasons people think their business doesn’t need a website. Our goal is to help you see its potential, but also what’s involved in the process of setting it up, running it and keeping in updated, so you can make a decision on your own and see if that’s the right choice for you.
Our previous post showed that the most important thing when looking for someone to create a website for your business is to make sure they take the time to listen to what you really need. However, there are some needs that not all providers might be able to take care of for you.
Say your brand new website has been up for a couple of months. You’re happy with it; it’s shiny and elegant. Everything is neat and people check it out. But there’s a problem: you’re moving to a new location and need to update the address on your website. Or there’s been changes to the inventory and now you want to make a Spring Sale. The guy who built the site gave you the credentials to take care of it yourself, but you’ve misplaced them or feel kinda lost when you log in to move things around. What do you do?
Scenario number 2: let’s say you have a really busy life between your business and your kids, and you’d love to keep your website up to date, but you’re far too exhausted by the end of the day. Wouldn’t it be great if the people who built the site could also keep it updated?
It turns out we can do that for you! If the content you’d like to publish is more verbal than visual, we have a team of copywriters available to write up to two posts per month for your site. You pick the topic, of course. This way, as new content keeps on coming up on your site, visitors will feel like they need to keep up with it and your website will stay fresh. Your plan also includes 30 minutes of general content updates per month, if that’s what you need. Our team can keep your inventory updated, or upload pictures of your business’ new location, whatever you need, we can take care of.
As you can see, in the last five posts we’ve tried to debunk some of the myths that keep business owners from getting their own website. Since small businesses are our main focus, we’ve tried to keep them in mind and work around these myths keeping their needs in mind. Hopefully, by now not only will you be eager to get a website for your business, but are interested in talking about it with us. Give us a chance!
