Websites are WAY MORE than Simply a Website….

I was over on the platform Alignable this afternoon answering this question in the Advice Section:

“We do not have an actual website and we still get lots of work off a free website Google provided. Does anyone have a better success with an actual website?”

Here was my short and skinny answer, but trust me I could go on and on about this one! I hope that you too get some valuable pointers from this. So much has changed with technology and it is pretty damn exciting I’d say!

My Answer:

โ€œIt really depends on your needs and websites today are โ€˜much more than websitesโ€™. They are or can be your businessโ€™s digital anchor that launches everything.  A website can be a place that is your main Contact Manager Tool for your email list and newsletter. It is where you can have your companyโ€™s updates and specials as well as having those stream out to all your social media platforms.

In my work of helping business owners with web solutions, one of the hottest features that my clients love is to have their ZOOM embedded right into their website platform so if people are taking a class or wanting a live meeting can hop on right in the site and they do not even have to go to the zoom app and this also โ€‹๐๐ซ๐ข๐ฏ๐ž๐ฌ ๐ญ๐ซ๐š๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐ข๐œ ๐ญ๐จ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐ฐ๐ž๐›๐ฌ๐ข๐ญ๐ž ๐š๐ง๐ ๐œ๐š๐ง ๐ข๐ง๐œ๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ฌ๐ž ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐†๐จ๐จ๐ ๐ฅ๐ž ๐ซ๐š๐ง๐ค๐ข๐ง๐  ๐š๐ง๐ ๐’๐„๐Ž.

โ€‹Another feature that is greatly beneficial is โ€˜push notificationsโ€™ from your site. For example, if someone has googled โ€œcleaners in your areaโ€ and they have come to your site twice, you can have an offer pop up offering a discount for new customers for exampleโ€ฆ Something like โ€œ10% OFF for new customersโ€

 And you can make these offers targeted in any way you want based on any criteriaโ€ฆ. quite amazing! โ€‹โ€‹

โ€‹And as for security, you can make sure your site is secured with an SSL certificate. 

โ€‹Websites are MUCH MORE these days than a page with your company info. They are really quite exciting and intuitive. :-)โ€

Don’t Think of Your Website as a Website!

I had a profound dream last night…….

Well actually this morning just before waking I had this dream and it fired me up. To keep it short, I dreamt that a medical professional had figured out the cause of a common disease (I won’t go into details) but in the dream she hired me to present the information to the masses and my heart was bursting with the excitement to do so!

It was like my dream job had come true! Now remember this was a dream. I am very much an entrepreneur and love being my own boss so I don’t want a dream job but dreams are dreams and that is how they roll. LOL

Anyhow, the whole dream translated into much more for me and that is where websites come in….

Lately through my digital marketing company, Webpros2, I have been helping business owners with their websites and all areas of their digital marketing and I am so excited to do so because businesses need extra help right now to increase their online presense at this time of transition and in the new way we are doing things.

So it came to me that a website is not just a website. They are much more. They are:

. Your business anchor

. An extension of your voice

. A digital canvas that showcases your business model to the world!

. They are your companies digital thumbprint

. They are art because they paint the o picture of your business and your mission and your vision and put them on a digital canvas for all to see (ใฃโ—”โ—กโ—”)ใฃ

. They are all of this and more!

I think the deeper we think about the value of our websites, the more meaningful they are to our business.

There are two things that I see as major anchors in the digital world.

1) your website

2) your email list

And the reason being is that you own both of these things. It is your content and your list. If set up correctly no one can take those away from you and wipe out your digital thumbprint!

I have unfortunately seen people lose things such as Facebook accounts or pages and they had no way to access or contact their entire client base. Something to think about for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you found this helpful or at least gave you some excitement for your website being more valuable and important than you perhaps once thought it was.

Have a great day and be well.
