Here are my answers to “Do I REALLY need a website?” – you can either watch the video or scroll down to read my answers.

So you have a bunch of questions and you’re not sure where to go from here. Let me answer each of these questions (and more) and see if I can help you quickly understand how fabulous it is to have a website for your business, hobby or passion.

Do I really need a website?

Do I REALLY need a website?

Before i answer this, maybe I should ask you some other questions.

Do you have something you’re trying to sell – a product, or a service? Or do you have information you’d love to share with as many people as you possibly can?

If your answer is “Yes!”, then you really do need a website or blog 🙂 You can reach a global audience of willing shoppers and followers if you have a website, rather than sitting at home hoping someone will hear about you by word of mouth.

How many pages will my website need

How many PAGES will my website need?

This will depend on how much information you’d like to share with your website visitors – to start with you should have:

  • home page
  • contact page with a form
  • about me page
  • info about your product or service

Apart from these standard pages, you will need to add pages on a regular basis to keep your website visitors interested in what you have to say and show them.

Do I really need a newsletter?

Do I really need a NEWSLETTER?

This would have to be the one thing many new website owners tell me they (a) don’t have time for or (b) don’t want to do.

Let me ask you this question – if you were ready to publish a book, launch your new jewellery, sell your fabulous products or services online … would you like a willing crowd of people to tell? A crowd of folks who’ve been following you and feel like they’re getting to know you, so much so that when you email them about your new whatever-it-is, some of them will buy it straight away? If you answered “Yes!” to this question, then YES YOU NEED A NEWSLETTER 🙂 It just doesn’t have to be as complicated or time-consuming as you might imagine – honest.

Do I really have to update my website often?

I have to UPDATE my website – OFTEN?!

If you like shopping for anything – let’s say it’s shoes, or even cars – how would you feel if you went back to the shoe shop or the car dealership week after week and nothing changed? I’m thinking you might get bored with that 🙂

If you update your website often (at LEAST once a week) then some of your site visitors might come back again to see what’s changed and what you’ve been up to. Makes sense?

How will people find my website?

How will people FIND my website?

There are sooo many answers to this question, but I’ll make it short so as not to overwhelm you with tons of great information. If you use website techniques (called SEO – “search engine optimization”), AND you write great interesting content on your webpages, AND you update your website regularly, AND if you write a Newsletter … people will find your website on the internet. You have to be willing to work hard and do all the right things on an ongoing basis to make sure your website is loved by the search engines and the website visitors – and yes, I can teach you all of these techniques 🙂

How will will I know if people visited my website?

How will I know if anyone VISITED my website?

When you set up or build a website, there are many little steps along the way to make sure people will find you. To find out HOW they found you, all you have to do is make sure your website visitors are being ‘tracked’ when they land on your site, and as they pop through your pages. This is called Website Statistics, and it can also track which words the visitors typed into a search engine to FIND you. Isn’t that clever? If you learn to read your ‘web stats’ on a regular basis, they can help you with your business.
