Getting online is easy. But succeeding online is a completely different kettle of fish — a fact I’m sure many small businesses are more than aware of.
There are many DIY website builders, such as WordPress and Wix, which offer small businesses an affordable way of getting a website.
But with such a crowded field, it can be baffling for business owners trying to decide which option is right for them.
So I’m going to let you in on a little secret about succeeding online.
At UENI, we love building fabulous websites and agree that a professional website is a great place to start. But succeeding online is not just about your website, it’s about curating a full, 360° online presence.
Read on for a full explanation of why you should explore Wix alternatives.
With DIY website builders like Wix, your website is where the service ends.
Sure, you can quickly build an attractive and affordable DIY website.
But what happens when you want to link your website to your social media profiles or when you need to get your business and website on Google Maps? A great website floating around in cyberspace is no use on its own.
Succeeding online needs a more holistic approach and many small business owners find that they just don’t have the time to learn the intricacies of all the other channels available to them online. This leaves their business’ online presence incomplete and their website dormant unless they invest in further digital marketing services elsewhere.
At UENI, we don’t just build you a sleek and professional website.
We manage a meaningful online presence — from search engines to social media to online directories — and all of it is customised for your business.
