You’ve done it. You’ve made the plunge and now you’re an entrepreneur.
Unfortunately the question is, where do you start? There was a time when you could open your doors and people would just wander in. That’s what your parents or grandparents did. All they needed was a phone number and shazzam, the world started calling.
You, however, aren’t so lucky. You know your product or service is perfect, if only people could see it. The problem is letting people know. You just have to get the word out there.
Everyone has told you already that you need a website. Do you have a website yet? Who’s building your website? Are you building your own?
Of course, the answer is the internet. A website is the answer to everything. It will tell people what you’re doing and explain to them how you do it. It’s perfect, right?
You’ve been online all week checking out your competition. Every single one of them has a website, all beautiful, compelling, and spot on.
If only you could make something like that on your budget. If you had enough money to pay someone to build it, or the skills to do it yourself. What you need is a website NOW so you can start selling.
The answer isn’t by building an expensive website that may take you weeks to produce.
No, what you need is a Facebook business page. Not a profile, but a page.
