If you’ve got a small business or a start-up then yes, you DO need a website. A website for your small business can help you to:
- Reach a larger audience,
- Increase engagement with your customers,
- Enhance your reputation and credibility, and
- Sell your product even when you’re asleep!
Having your own website built doesn’t need to break the bank. We can build you a website that suits your museum’s personality, meets important accessibility guidelines and most importantly fits into your budget.
Things to consider for a small business website
What do you want your website to do?
Decide early on what you want your website to do for you. Will you have an online shop? A blog? Or is your website just a point of contact for potential customers?
What domain name should you register?
Your domain is your website address, i.e. the URL people will visit to see your website. It’s best to have a domain name that matches your business name or describes what you do.
What will YOU be able to do on your website?
When getting a website built, it’s important to consider how much you will be able to edit or change once the site has been launched.
Websites aren’t set-and-forget, and you don’t want to have to rely on a developer to make every little change.
What devices will your users be able to use?
Long ago it became the norm that a website will work on the variety of devices we have on hand. Desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile devices are all expected to work.
Is accessibility important for a small business website?
I’ll answer this one for you, even small business websites should be accessible to as many people as possible. Make sure to talk to your developer about accessibility and what your expectations are.
What will the monthly or annual costs be?
All websites will have ongoing costs, and it’s important to know what those costs will be before you start with a developer.
