And once you appropriate your website, you can start thinking of:

  • SEO, Search Engine Optimization,
  • SEM, Search Engine Marketing,
  • SMM, Social Media Marketing, and 
  • GMB, Google My Business.

Summarily, you need a base for your digital marketing, and your website is that base.

That said, know that building just any website would do your business more harm than good. For example, a poorly designed site will hurt your brand reputation, dent your sales, and negate your credibility.

More so, anything worth doing is worth doing well. So, don’t settle for poorly designed websites. Go for the best – your small business deserves it!
