We are VERY excited to share with you the launch of our Websites Training Course. Every business needs a website. Customers expect it and they are online searching for businesses like yours. In this course, you’ll learn the benefits of a website for your business and the importance of a strategically planned website. 

Why are Websites Important for Businesses?

If you don’t have a website, the credibility of your company will immediately come into question. Real businesses have websites. Your competitors have websites, and your customers are searching for you online. If you don’t have a website, your business might as well not exist. Here are 3 reasons why websites are so important for businesses.   

1. Your website is your first impression.

71% of consumers begin their journey by using a search engine. This is how many of your new customers will become aware of your business, by searching and finding your website. If your website ranks, this may be your very first encounter with that new prospective customer. Your website has just a few seconds to make a positive impression and help the user know exactly what it is that you do. And if you don’t even have a website that ranks, then you don’t even get the opportunity to make that impression at all. This translates to a lost sale.

2. It’s the hub of your online activity.

As a business, you have many opportunities to be active online including social media, email marketing, community sites and more. All of these point back to your website. The objective in much of your online communication is to drive traffic to your website. Once users are on your website, you have the opportunity to convert them to leads and sales and build loyal customers and followers.   

3. You have full control over the content.

Your website is the least restrictive of all online media and you have full control over the content, layout, images, and design. Social media, email, and other websites won’t allow you the freedom that you will have with your own website. It’s always best when you own the media. 

What is Included in our Websites Course?

Our Websites Training Course gives you everything you need to plan and build a website for your business.
