Start to build a small business website

Now you know why it’s absolutely essential for a small business to have a website. A website is not a luxury or bonus marketing tool.

It’s something you must have so you can:

  • Have anchor for your marketing efforts
  • Sell your products/services
  • Connect with new customers (and keep existing customers)
  • Compete with big brands
  • Build your credibility
  • Control your online destiny
  • Market your business in a simple and affordable way

To start reaping these benefits, take these steps to build a small business website.

Pick your domain name

Once you decide to get a website, pick a domain name that works best for your brand. To choose the best domain name:

  • Make it easy to type.
  • Keep it short.
  • Use keywords.
  • Target your area.
  • Avoid numbers and hyphens.
  • Be memorable.
  • Research it.
  • Use an appropriate domain extension.
  • Protect and build your brand.
  • Act fast.

Even if you aren’t ready to build your site today, secure your ideal domain name so no one else can register and use it.
