Why do you need a website
Are there people looking for you online? But you are nowhere to be found.
Number one, then you need a web presence. As Technology improves, the world shrinks. Customers have more choices than ever. They are now starting to search for products on the internet and not the telephone book. If you have a product or service for sale or if you have information you’d like to share. How do you stand out? In fact how do you even get noticed.
If your competition is online and you are not. Then you might as well be selling out of a covered wagon. To get online you will need the following:
- You will need an internet connection
- You will need a name for your website (Domain name)
- You will need to get a house for your website (Hosting)
- You will need a way for people to find your website (Search Engine optimization)
- You will need content for you website
- You will need a coder to convert the content into code for the, server (hosting) to read your website in
