© 2001, 2003 Shelby Patrick

"Why do I need a website?" I'll bet that question has crossed your mind on many occasions. It doesn't matter if you are just starting out in business, have been in business for years, or if you aren't in business at all. Somewhere along the way, the Internet will call to you and you'll start to wonder if you should join the many ranks before you and put up your own website.

Is there any point to having an online presence? Will it make you rich, famous, or more knowledgeable? The end result is up to you, but the first step is making a decision and then acting upon it.

The following list is a compiled list of very valid reasons why YOU should have your own website.

1. Your products and/or services can be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

2. Low advertising costs, as opposed to the more traditional advertising media.

3. You can release time sensitive data immediately.

4. Reduces phone time and allows for more ways of communication.

5. Generates immediate orders and feedback.

6. Smaller companies can now compete with the larger companies.

7. Attracts new customers.

8. Individuals can publish their resumes, swap recipes, or share their knowledge/hobbies with the world.

9. Provides niche or specialized exposure.

10. Creates interest and excitement.

A website means business. It can tell people that you cared enough to join today's technology by advancing to the web. If you're serious about your business or your knowledge, having a website is one of the best choices you can make. So stop asking if you SHOULD have a website and start creating one today!
