The Importance Of Using A Blog And Website To Promote Your Business

Having a subscriber list is not the only thing you need to ensure you have in the world of online marketing.

While we all want a lot of customers, we also need to make sure those customers keep coming back.

One of the many ways you can ensure your subscribers are listening and staying engaged is to have a website and blog.

A website does more than you think to help sell you or your product.

Four reasons why you must have a website:

. To stand out from the competition

. To describe and feature your product(s)

. To have a blog to share your voice

. Entertainment


Most people are under the impression that a website is just another means of putting up pictures so people can see your work, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Almost every company or individual who needs to sell themselves has a personal or company website.





From selling shoes to selling your art, websites are what makes you stand out from the crowd.

To stand out from the competition 

It is a great big world out there and chances are if you have the most brilliant idea of the century, someone else has that same idea.

Because of that, getting the word out as quick as possible is the most important thing you can do for yourself and your business.

Websites offer you a chance to step up to the competition and stand out, which is why it is extremely important to have a website that not only shows your product but also shows who you are.

Your website has to be a mixture of business and commercialization, so to keep things competitive you must make sure your website stands out.

To describe and feature your product(s)

If you are an author or someone who does any kind of art media, then you must make sure your work is the center of attention.

That being said, let me explain now that there is a difference between being classy and being gaudy when it comes to making your website.

While you do want an eye catching website, you do not want a website that looks like a bad Bailey dancer.

Website design is not nearly as difficult as it sounds.

There are a number of professional website domains out there which allow you to build the website yourself by choosing your own layout, background colors,background images and putting in your personal preferences.

One of the most important things to remember when it comes to website building is that “You absolutely must compliment your product with the appropriate website” 

Let me give an example. A Friend received the business card of a very talented author whose work he was truly interested in.

The books were very modern takes on ancient ideas, a new age sort of style.

 The book covers were soft tan and looked as if they were meant to be antiques. He was immediately drawn to the style and art of the book covers.

When he went to check out the artist’s website, however, He was disappointed to see that the website background was ‘done in a very flashy space scene where the stars looked as if they were coming towards you and the background music he said, was a cheesy futuristic sort of thing.

The website did nothing to enhance or promote the books based on looks, it simply flashed out at him drawing in his attention.

 Because of this, He lost interest in the website. He was still very interested in the books, but did not check out the website for any updates or read the author’s blogs, He just couldn’t get past the look of it.

More importantly, it’s the copy (the words you use) on your site that will either make or break your site.

Having a “Welcome” page,“About Us” or "Contact Us" page as your main home page will deter visitors from finding out more about your product(s) or service(s).

Instead, you want to capture their attention by having a clear headline outlining the biggest benefit your customer will get out of your product(s) or service(s).

Have a Good Day !

  1. I totally agree about matching the content of your website to the product you are trying to sell. Authors are particularly bad at understanding this – like your friend, I’ve been on a number of websites of authors who have self-published on Amazon, and often their books and website are totally disconnected. Murder mystery authors with forest backgrounds, sci-fi writers with nature music and waterfalls in the background – it’s ridiculous!

  2. What interesting advice. I love this peek behind the scenes of successful web design and you've given me some real pointers for my next website, which is in the process of being designed. I never knew that having a 'welcome' or 'about us' page as the landing page could be a negative factor. Thank you for the valuable insight.

  3. Having a blog is a must in the modern economy, even if most of your business is in person. Blogs keep your loyal customers updated, and let new people know what you’re up to. They’re also a great way to add a face to your product, and make yourself look like unique in a market full of competitors.
