Business cards are an important part of any business networking. A handy little card to give potential business associates or clients with all your contact details.

 Open shop sign

A website is a shop front only better. It is open all the time and available to anyone. And even better it's cheaper than actually having a physical shop.

It's a place to showcase what you do and show potential customers not only that you exist but also that you are professional. Even if it's just you running the business your website doesn't need to give that away. You can make it look like you've got a huge team while in reality it's just you working really hard. 

You don't need to be selling a product to need a space to sell you can show off your skills and make customers aware of your capabilities as a business owner. .

Why is it important?

People type in what they're looking for in a browser window and get results served based on the Search Engines' algorithms.  These algorithms take lots of different factors into account when evaluating how relevant your site is to the person searching.

Make sure that you can customise things such as unique page titles, metadata keywords and metadata titles for each page on your website.

Own your own domain name

Domain name sign posts

Your domain name is also referred to as the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) or web address of your site.

Getting an appropriate domain name is important and can help your site achieve higher search engine rankings and also help users understand what you do.  You can buy a domain name from any domain name registrars and usually you buy it for a fixed term, say a year or two.
