Do I need a website for my virtual assistant business?

Do I need a website for my virtual assistant business?

Yes, I think every business needs a website. But especially when you have an online business you need a website. As a VA you are an online business. You can work from anywhere as long as there is wifi. 

So let me tell you why I think every business needs a website.

Reason 1: You can work from home

I started my VA business to work from home. As an introvert, it was so energy-draining to work in an office. Even as an extrovert I can imagine working for someone doesn't always make sure that you can shine. Having a website is the best marketing tool a business owner can have.

Reason 2: You own everything you put on your website

Quoting the great Marie Forleo: “Don’t create your business on property you do not own.”

You don’t own anything you put on social media. As soon as you click post you put your content in the hands of the social media company and its algorithm. With a website, you’re the boss. This means you can put whatever you want on your website, and it’s 100% yours! So your amazing offer, your awesome lead magnet, your badass expertise. Of course, you can have social media accounts. But everything has to lead to your website. So when something changes, like Facebook blocks you, you have everything on your website.

Reason 3: Online presence 24/7

Another reason is that you have a 24/7 online presence. Meaning you’ll have unlimited reach from all over the world! Customers are always able to find you! And if you set it up right, also book an appointment or buy your service/product.

Reason 4: It's professional

Also, having a website is professional. People can see what you have to offer them on their own time. They can see your expertise by reading your blog posts. And especially if you have an online business it’s just strange when you don’t have a website. Personally, I don’t buy anything from businesses that don’t have a website.

Reason 5: Free traffic via Google

And the last reason is that your website can be found on Google, you will get free traffic! Yay! SEO for your website and website pages is very important. Don’t just throw around as many keywords as possible. Use one main keyword and use keywords that mean the same but are worded differently.

So to conclude. The 5 reasons why you need a website for your business.

  1. 1
    You can work from home
  2. 2
    You own everything you put on your website
  3. 3
    Online presence 24/7
  4. 4
    It's professional
  5. 5
    Free traffic via Google
