Why not just use Facebook as my website?

Why not just use Facebook

Don't use Facebook as your website. Learn why that is in this post. To be blunt: everything you put on Facebook is not your own. Everything on your website is your own. To let this not be the shortest blog you ever read I’ll elaborate, haha.

What comes out of your beautiful brain is golden. Why take the risk that it won’t be seen or will be removed. Maybe because of some policy they came up with or maybe because they decide it’s no longer profitable to keep the platform online. Or you get blocked because of something.

When you have a website all your content is your own. You can show your awesomeness to the whole world. Of course, it costs money when you want to create a professional website. If you ask me, it’s more than worth it! I have more views on my website than I have on Facebook. 

I’m not saying that you don’t have to be on Facebook. Use social media as a tool to get people to your website. I'm a big fan of Pinterest. Check which social media platform works for you and use it in your advantage. But remember, a website is a crucial part of your business.

So this is a pretty short blog post, but it's also a pretty short answer. Yes, you definitely need a website.

I'm an introverted online business owner with wanderlust. I believe that being an introvert is one of the best assets a business owner can have. Introverts are excellent at working alone. They can work towards a goal without getting distracted. Plus, introverts are amazing at learning new things. I'm here to empower you to make your own website as awesome as you are. From the comfort of your own home. In your own time. So you can live the life of your dreams.
