With the world going digital, and the endless realities, limitless connections, opportunities and all that can be achieved online, i mean why should you not ow a website.
For what it is worth, I will say why.
3 Reasons You Should Own a Website
#1. An Online Brochure.A brochure is a book or mag containing pictures and informations about something or probably advertising something. Having a blog or website gives you to own a space on the internet where you can showcase your personal photos or business.
... THATS NOT ALL.
- More International Customers.
When you own a website recognized by Google and other search engines, you have also made the business which you run on the website reachable to clients from other part of the world through the internet.
Take for instance, Gozkybrain sells Professional Web Tools and uses his Blog to create awareness for this. He is likely to also get clients from other countries because Bukas Global Investments is responsive on Google search.
- Ability to run your office for 24hours on a virtual space.
Banks actually close at 4:00pm daily. Just like banks, regular market sellers and traders have a designated time for closure and resumption of work daily. Running a blog gives you an edge over the others, because the internet never goes off.
For the sake of differences in time zone, you have an advantage over your rivals (if your website offers international services).
As such, your customers have an Easy Access to your office (ie. your website) because it is on a virtual space and does not require a physical interaction for business to take place.
- Customer care support with proffessional business standard.
When you run a website for your business, you start to gain more customer care Services because you can handle issues at your own time.
#2.Influences your online appearance.Apart from getting social media fans & followers, you'll have to grow your presence on the internet through your blog fans and website customers; to excel and make money online. Owning a website or blog gives you a great personality online, when your services are genuine.
... BUT THERES MORE.
- Improves your personality with other people.
Once you own a website, especially one with a great content and a professional look, you start to meet others in this field. This gives you a good interaction with other bloggers and webmasters in your niche, and also gives you a good name if you know what i mean.
- Get the attentions from fans.
You want attention? Then create a blog with your name and a custom domain. If you offer entertainments or a tutorial on your blog - then be sure to get fans talking about you. You're talking of Linda Ikeji huh?
- Upgrades your online presence among your peers.
The moment i launched my first website way back in high school, i became a geek. It automatically elevated my status in relation to web issues, even areas i hadn't learned then. It really made me popular and i really enjoyed the elevation in status.
- Upgrades your status even far from your Geo zone.
Not just does owning a blog upgrade your online status among your peers in your hood, it reaches far beyond your Geographical zone. Most bloggers on web tutorial niche should know Agrawal Harsh of ShoutMeLoud, this dude is from India but his works are really felt here in Nigeria too. Thats one of the things owning a blog can do for you; but do you have what it takes for blogging? .
#3. An income generator.Running on an entertainment or tutorial niche, or whatever niche you're good at. You're almost generating funds from a 2nd source while still schooling or working.
... IT CAN ONLY GET BETTER.
- An appealing landing page for e-Marketing.
For instance you work with an affiliate company, you have the privilege of designing your website as a landing page for the product you are advertising rather than the default features social media pages have. Its all about the packaging, and it surely counts.
- A ground to monetize your passion.
This is the category that favors people like me, a reason you should own a blog. Let’s say, you're a good writer or an entertainer, or probably a teacher; blogging is an avenue for you to monetize your passion through the different earning methods available all over the internet.
- Location flexibility, unlike a paid jobs.
Unlike a paid job, you can always run your business even when you're on holiday and gain more fans. Change in location has technically no effect on your progress, and you can always take web breaks when ever you deem it fit to take breaks.
Bottom line, you should get a website if you will be taken any seriously in the online space.
