If you are a new business you may be asking yourself. Do I need a website? What kind of site do I need? The lifespan of a website in the early years of your business is going to be shorter than later when your website is more established. This is because when you’re starting out you can have a simpler website and then upgrade it as your business grows, and you start honing in more on who your ideal client is.
A great way to legitimize your new business is with a good (yet simple) website. When you are in the beginning stages of your business you don’t need a big fancy website, but the website should still be designed to convert your visitors into leads. A great place to start is with a simple template customization. There are lots of Free Showit Templates available when you sign up for a Showit account.
Once you’ve been in business for a while and you have honed in on your ideal client and solidified your brand it may be time to redesign your website. At this stage in business, you have a portfolio to show off and have more consistent work. Your site should solidify your brand consistency, show your value and offerings. Purchasing a more detailed template from the Showit Design Shop is a great place to start, then work with a designer to customize the template to fit your brand.
If you’re ready to elevate your brand you are probably ready for a custom website. A custom website will show off your brand uniqueness and show off your custom offerings. It will allow you to speak to your ideal client and have a design that is unique to your business. This will allow you to also add custom featured to your site, that may not be available in a template.
If you’re unsure of the type of website is right for your business, drop me a line and I’m happy to make a recommendation for you.
