Most people have these misguided expectations about websites, in case you have a website and feel it’s underperforming, or planning to get a new website, you should know these.
Myth 1: Your website will automatically Attract Visitors
Truth: Practically, before your website starts to get your anticipated return, a significant amount of time, skill, and resources need to be put in. You need to focus on things like search engine optimization, paid ads, blog posts, video ads—it takes a lot to generate traffic for your site.
Myth 2: It’s not all business that needs a website, probably people that sell items online do.
Truth: No matter your kind of website, every business needs a professional website.
Myth 3: Having a good website will attract more clients to my website.
Truth: More sales come from the quality of your products and services. Good design is for the user experience.
Myth 4: Once I have my website online, I don’t need to pay for any other thing.
Truth: You will need to continue rents like domain name and hosting, most times, annually.
Myth 5: Building a website is expensive.
Truth: Websites are not that expensive anymore, if you know your way, there carefree tools like WordPress, Wix, etc to get you a free website. But not also cheap because a professional website requires a lot of other skill set like SEO, graphics, content creation, digital marketing, etc.
Myth 6: You will appear on google first page or top position:
Truth: That may never happen in the next 3 to 6 months. Google and other search engines have the formula to rank websites, your website may not fulfill most of these conditions in the next 3 to 6 months.
Myth 7: The more features on my website, the better.
Truth: Less is more, too many features on websites scares visitors and most don’t take any action on a website. We are Netwalkers NG, we help businesses with modern websites and apps to solve their business challenges.
