No Reason Not To Have A Website

MEDIA RELEASE

No Reason Not To Have A Website

With the arrival of free ‘template websites’, there is now very little reason for a small to medium sized business not to have their own website.

Template websites are pre-designed and allow you to add your own content – everything from text and images, right through to sound and movies, enabling you to customise your website in almost any way you like.

A web presence is crucial for any small business and offers far more flexibility than a Facebook or Twitter page. Every business needs custom branding and to create an identity, and template websites provide this opportunity.

However, even though template websites are generally easy to use, not everyone has the flair, creativity or time to set one up.

Marion Jackson, Director of My Virtual Assistant, says: “Your website needs to communicate the unique tone, feeling and mood of your business and time needs to be spent on developing an overall aesthetic experience for your visitors.”

A huge part of the appeal of a template website means no longer having to call a web designer to correct every grammatical error and photo upload. Being able to update your website whenever you wish also means it is easy to keep content fresh and relevant.

These days, one of the first things that a customer or another business does before they consider dealing with you, is look you up on your website. So, what does it say to them if you don’t even have a website?
