How to Hire a Website Assistant for Your Business
These days, a lot of businesses run through their websites. Even if you don’t think that your website is that essential a part of your operation, you might be wrong. 94% of your first impressions as a business will relate to the impression your website makes.
For some businesses, a website is everything. It’s the hub from which you make all of your sales. For other businesses, a website might just be part of the funnel, but secondary to the in-person experience. Either way, websites are essential for any business these days. It’s more than a business card. It’s your first impression.
For many of your customers, their first step won’t be to call you, but to Google you. They want to see that your website portrays a professional image. And it only takes them about 0.05 seconds to form an opinion on your website—and by extension, you.
There are a few problems here:
- You aren’t a website expert. Far from it. As a full-time business owner, you simply don’t have the time to handle the inner workings of WordPress, or the years of experience necessary to create a website from scratch.
- You don’t have time. Everything from digital marketing, social media, to content management can be time-consuming. You need to be able to outsource that to someone else. Preferably, some else with the experience to make your web presence engaging.
- You don’t have the eye for graphic design. And maybe you do—but even if you do, do you have the time to take your graphic design ideas and make them work on a website?
The simple solution is to outsource many of these tasks to a full time or part time website assistant. Doing so won’t only ensure that you have everything you need for your website to make a better first impression, but you’ll have a much smoother sales funnel that can incorporate with your entire business. Here’s how to do it.
