Have you been trying to launch a business but find yourself stuck on launching your website?
What if I told you that you can have a business and land your first client without having a website? I’ve listed 3 reasons why you do NOT need a website to launch your business.
Business Legalities Are Most Important
Before launching a website, you’ll need to make sure your business is legal. You’ll need to do this to ensure that you can create a business account and track all of your expenses, come tax season.
Sometimes people may not realize that building websites cost money, but so does filing legal paperwork. You’ll need to make sure you have the right documentation to protect yourself and your business from any risks or problems down the line.
When you start accepting money from clients, it’s critical that you’ve already formed your business legally. Having a website isn’t going to protect you if you start making money.
Social Media Platforms Can Convert
Social media platforms are typically free and they can actually be a great resource to convert leads.
I have personally grown businesses using platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and more. I highly suggest building a company page or business page to showcase your offerings and build a brand on it. It is something you’ll eventually have to do in order to communicate with your audience so why not start on social media as a way to start building revenue?
Websites Can Delay Your Progress
A friend mentioned that she was working on her website and it has been taking about 8 months! 8 months of not being able to announce the business because the website isn’t perfect or parts of it are breaking.
In my opinion, that is time that cannot be given back and there’s no reason for you to delay announcing your business because your website isn’t ready. If you strive for perfection, there will always be something that is going to keep you behind and will delay your progress.
If you truly want to launch a website, make it simple for yourself to start off with and grow from there. As a business owner, there will always be fires that you need to put out – don’t let your website be one of them.
