Do you really need a website as a small business?

You can have a successful business without needing a website.

What you should be doing if you don’t have a website for your business:

🗣 Speak in an authentic way on social media posts.

If this isn’t how you would say it in person with a client, why are you writing it that way? It’s giving… mixed messaging. If words aren’t your forte, consider looking into copywriters for inspiration! One of my absolute favorites is Maha Copy Co. Their instagram is filled with copywriting gold!

📷 Get professional photos done, possibly video promotion too.

Give people a feel of what it’s like to work with out. Showcase the personality of your business or personal brand on the different platforms you’re on. Needing a session? If you’re local to Chattanooga or willing to pay for travels… I gotchu! Check out my brand photo and video services here.

🥇 Provide value.

What are some pain points for your ideal buyer? Help them out. How can you show up as the expert? What makes your offer the solution to their problems? If you’re struggling with how to do this with your business, I offer brand strategy sessions to help get the ball rolling and setting actionable goals!

✅ Have a workflow.

How are you capturing leads? How can people purchase from you? Is it easy to do so? Create a workflow that works for you, not one that creates headaches. I am a huge fan of both Dubsado and Flodesk for this very reason! Tech not yo’ thang? I offer VIP Client Days to help with just that!

🌪 Now before you get it twisted…

I fully believe in the importance of having a website. The long term benefits of having a website. Yada ya. However… I want you to stop letting the excuse of, “well I don’t have a website” keep you from getting out there and showing up.
