5 Reasons To Create Your Own Small Business Website

By Jay Gumbs

How do you get your name out, further than the boundaries of your small town where your business is based? Are you limiting your reach?

Most likely if you are you are limiting your small business' potential.

The best way to get your name out there is to brand yourself and create a strong internet presence.

To the small business owner this may make perfect sense (and it definitely is) but where should one start? Creating your own small business website is the logical way to go.

You can hire a freelance web designer to do your website for you and pay him a great deal of money. Or you can go with a web design firm. These are just some of the options but they may be out of your reach if you have just launched your small business and haven't even reached the break even point as yet.

There is another option and that is to do it yourself.

Here are 5 reasons why you should create your own small business website.

1. You will save a considerable amount of money by doing your own website and this can be done very easily with the different types of software available today. Even if you don't know complicated coding.

2. You will create bigger opportunity for yourself and your business as the internet can bring you closer to your target market. As a matter of fact it brings your target market closer to you as they find you instead of you having to find them.

3. You will be more in control of the online side of your business even if you do hire someone to maintain your site for you afterwards.

4. You will be able to partner with businesses related to your market allowing for joint ventures that wouldn't have been possible if you had been offline.

5. You will cut advertising costs considerably as it will take less effort and money getting clients.

So you see, creating your own small business website is to your advantage and this is something you should consider in the early planning stages of your business. If your small business is already well established but doesn't have an online presence then now is the time to start.

Creating websites yourself doesn't have to be a hassle. You do not have to learn complicated code since most website builders nowadays are wysiwyg or what-you-see-is-what-you-get editors. Even better are the drag and drop type of website builders where you can just drag your elements such as images and video where you want them to be.

One of the best drag and drop website builders to be released in recent times is Site Rubix, which was created with marketers in mind. The website builder makes it possible to create beautiful and professional looking websites in a matter of minutes. It is definitely something I would recommend for creating your first small business website.
