One of the most immediate and prominent things you can invest in as a start-up business is a website that captures both who you are and what you offer. Your website says a lot about you, so it’s important to imagine where you see your enterprise in five years and curate that level of professionalism from the very start. There are several reasons why a website is an important first step of the process; here are a few notable ones:
New on the scene. If you are a start-up, you are not a household name (yet). While that can be daunting, it’s okay! Your success does not depend on being well-known yet, it’s about presenting yourself and the services you provide in an elevated manner. It’s more about how you present your drive and the experience you do have, rather than focusing on any “lack” there may be. When you present prospective clients with a website that highlights the best of what you have done, it will entice them to expand your portfolio by awarding their job to you.
Build rapport. Another crucial element of a website for a start-up is the ability to build rapport with potential clients or consumers. When you present a website that shares your story and provides insight into your services, even on a nominal level, you build rapport. The person on the other side of the desk has an opportunity to better understand you and your services, and make an informed decision about hiring you (even if the website doesn’t have a whole lot on it).
A Website Shows Dedication. Similar to the above tip “build rapport”, when you show a prospective client, investor or consumer that you are dedicated to the pursuit of your enterprise, it goes a long way. It tells that person that despite any conflicts of experience, you care, and are personally dedicated to the progression of your craft. If you are not invested in your progress, why should they be interested in hiring you?
