Do You Have A Website or An Online Business Card?

This article might seem a little silly (and perhaps it is) but I’m here to tell you that if you are in a home based business and you have an online business card you are missing out on tons and tons of money (and THAT is serious business!)

First let me say that I use the word “website” to mean……a website or blog.

So you’re probably wondering, what is an online business card?

Simply put it’s a website that’s ugly, out of date, with only your contact info on it basically. It doesn’t collect anyone’s information. It’s doesn’t have video on it. It’s graphically challenged and it’s not selling anything.

Online business card websites are all over the internet and I usually just roll my eyes and laugh at them. But it’s no joking matter when it’s a website that was set up for an online business.

If you are selling ANYTHING online you have GOT to have a good looking professional website. A website that sells! That collects surfers information, so you can build that “know, like and trust” factor. Internet marketing and any kind of marketing is about Relationshipping! Now, I’m not saying that you have to go out and spend thousands of dollars on a website designer but you must make sure that your website looks like you’re a serious business man/woman or you’re going to make much less money than you could be making.

Think about this… who wants to go into business with someone who has a rinky dink looking website? Nobody! That’s telling people that you aren’t serious about your success (even if you are).

Also, you must, must, must get a domain name. It kills me to see home based business owners who are using sub-domains for their website. That just does not scream professionalism.

Again, I know that this is a seemingly silly topic but you have no idea how much a great looking professional website will change your online business. You have to take yourself and your business seriously! If you do, others will too.

The worst thing you can do is get a great prospect and send him or her to a cheesy, cheap looking website. You will lose them for sure and with them you’ll lose all the money they could have brought into your business.

So take a good hard look at your website and see what you can do to improve upon it. Even if it’s not a horrible website… what can you do to make it that much better? There is always room for improvement and sometimes it just takes a couple small little tweaks to make a big difference in your check.

Happy Marketing,
