7 Reasons Why Today Is The Best Time For You To Start A Website

Aug 28, 2008
Once you've made the decision to start a website, when should you begin?

The short answer to this question is: as quickly as possible. Here are several reasons why this is true.

First, you can't enjoy the benefits of owning a website until it is actually launched. The benefits may include additional revenue, and also can mean less time invested in customer service problems. One common use of a website is to provide documentation and instructions for using your products on your website.

Secondly, domain name age appears to be a factor in high-ranking results in the search engines. So you will want to register your domain name as soon as possible.

Third, once your site is up and running, you can begin promoting it. Since the effects of such promotion are cumulative, and you or your representatives can only do so much every day, you will want to start on promotion as soon as possible. Some of the promotion you can do include articles, video, press releases, commenting on blogs, and forum marketing.

Fourth, starting right away means you can start "catching up" with your competitors that much sooner.

Fifth, any effort that you put in today will give you a lead over your competition who are not online. People often put off starting a website, believing it will be time-consuming and difficult.

Sixth, if you have a website, it lends a certain credibility to your business and causes people to be more likely to want to do business with you.

Seventh, having a website can give you increased "points of contact" with prospects. This is important because it often takes about seven contacts with you before a prospect is ready to make a buying decision. Those points of contact can be in person, by phone, by postal mail, or via the internet. If you have helpful articles or tools on your site, you can speed the process along dramatically.
