You Ask ~ Why Create Websites?

So why would you build a website? And, in general, why do people create websites? What’s the point?! There are many great reasons to build your own website. Maybe you have a plan of building a small business and would like to have a place on the internet in which to interact about it. Or, maybe you just want to advertise your skills, such as photography or cooking?!

I can think of a few reasons why I would want to build a website, but for the purposes of this note we will discuss the main one: ‘COMMUNICATION.’

Someone once asked me why I thought anyone should have or create a website for business. I basically asked him the following question: ”Tell me something about your business without using your mouth or any form of movement either with your hands or body gestures.” For the next few moments, there was a long pause while he tried to figure this out. It didn't take long for him to begin to truly realize what I meant. I guess the main idea is that a website offers a lot more than just what you can offer as a business owner on a daily basis.

A website communicates with someone without you even realizing it is happening. It can communicate with hundreds, if not thousands, of people at the same time! This is difficult to do even for the most talented multi-tasker. So, no matter how many visitors you may have to your website, they can all can read about your business at the same exact time! Amazing! Also, more importantly is the fact that websites communicate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with people you don’t even know about.

Many people use the internet for the purposes of contacting companies or shopping for whatever they are looking for... It now seems that quite a few don’t even use the yellow pages (which are normally laying somewhere in the back room or even in the recycle bin). I can’t even remember when I last used the yellow pages to look for something… All I do these days is search it up on the internet!

How you come across to audience will also determine whether or not they may actually use your services or whether they will even recommend it to their friends or family. Maybe you would like to build a website to just explain a certain topic that you are interested in (or an expert on). Some people even like to write a blog that explains their ongoing lifestyle or daily activities. With billions of people out there, someone is sure to read it!!

Top Reasons to build a website:

  • Online Position or Presence
  • Gaining Customers
  • Selling Products
  • Becoming Up-to-date
  • Reaching Variety of Audiences
  • Just for Fun
  • Making Money!

Business Reasons for a website:

For many small businesses today, it is pretty much necessary for them to have an online website. This means that when you hand out business cards, there is a URL on the bottom for potential customers to go to and research or shop on it. Also, today, people will definitely 'judge' your company by the website. If your website is good, then the company comes across as good. When I am think about buying a certain product, I will often go to their website and decide just from that visit then and there whether or not to purchase their product or not.

Having a website can also increase your number of customers and, therefore, sales. People do more research online and this means they ask less questions later. Having a website has also become the norm in today’s society. Your business needs to keep up in today’s society. What better way to do so than by making and maintaining a stylish and good looking website?!

Personal Reasons to have a website:

Even if you don’t own a business, creating a website is also fun and informational. You can use it to advertise your own personal skills through a portfolio type of website. You can also just build a website for fun, so that you can learn how it all works. This can be a fun way to communicate with family and friends on your website. This is why I wanted to build my first website. Yes ~ Just for fun!

Making Money:

Another reason people build websites is to make money. However, it is not a get rich quick scheme. Though, you could possibly make money off the internet, right from your home, on your computer. Amazing, but true!!! (click here). Also, if you know a lot about a certain subject, then you could build an informational type of website which would explain your chosen topic. This by itself could generate traffic. You see, the more traffic you get, the more money you can make through advertisements or affiliate associates. There are as many ways to make money building your own website as there are people in the world — so have fun and do it!!

Why Should You Build a Website?

I think there is great incentive to at least check out how to build your own website. There are great FREE sites that give you the education and tools to do so. So, have you come up with some good reasons to build your own website? Hopefully you have answered the question this was written to answer ~ “Why Create Websites?“

Well if you have honestly answered this question for yourself, then the next thing you need to do is to decide what type of website to build. Once you decide that, you can decide how you are going to go about it. Most of all, have fun doing it and you will continue to do it and enjoy it all the while! Good luck and see you on the World Wide Web!! Remember, The Skies the Limit!!!
