Many of our Wedding Pros are small business owners with a small number of employees. These types of businesses don’t have the same budget as some of the big industry players, so they have to be more careful about how they spend their time and money. Often these Pros don’t have a website because they don’t have the time or money, or just because they think they just don’t need one.
Should your business have a website? Yes. Even if your business is small? Yes. Even if your business sells products or services that can’t be sold online? Yes!
The answer is yes – always.
While your WeddingWire Storefront will provide you with search engine value and a place to upload photos and videos of your work, having a website allows you to provide searching couples with more information about your business. Having a listing on WeddingWire will get you in front of those couples, but if they don’t find the information they’re looking for on your Storefront, you don’t want to lose them just because there’s nowhere else for them to go!
In this day and age, a website is an absolute must for any business. But there are a lot of myths floating around about how expensive, complicated or time-consuming websites can be. Creating an online presence and additional source of information for potential clients can be easy and cost-effective if you know where to get started.
We’ve busted these 4 common website myths so you can know exactly how to begin!
Myth #1: I don’t have the money to create a website.
Wrong! There are many inexpensive services that will handle everything related to your website – domain, hosting, design and more – for a few dollars a month. Most website services also have tons of templates for your business to get the right look. Make sure your choice allows you to add widgets so you can use tools like our Reviews widget and Contact Us Button to easily integrate your WeddingWire Storefront on your website!
