Facebook vs a Website
Menu

Over 40% of small businesses do not have a website

There are many reasons companies choose not to create a website. For example, many Small Business owners can not afford to pay someone to build their site, and their lack of time and technical expertise make it less likely they’ll build one themselves

Plus why would you want to build a website that has numerous costs like a domain name, web hosting services, web designers, SEO marketing campaigns, website updates and maintenance
When you could setup a Social Media page or pages for your business with Sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram … for FREE?

Instead, some businesses opt to build a Facebook page or utilize other social media as their main online presence instead of creating a website

But having just a Facebook page can mean lost business and added headaches. And it is now easier and cheaper than ever to create a website

Facebook is no longer the "Only Good Solution"

Even though Forbes reports there are more than 40 million active small business pages on Facebook

Facebook pages are an easy way for many business owners to have an online presence. But still may not be the best option or image you want for your business. And there are many reasons why this is not the best solution for most businesses

Competition

The competition on Facebook is fierce. As reported by BuzzSumo. The average number of engagements with posts on Facebook created by brands has fallen more than 20 percent since 2017. They analyzed more than 870 million posts and gleaned the average number of engagements fell from 330 to 250 over the first 6 months of the year

Your in Control

Another benefit of maintaining your own Website. You control the brand experience. A well designed Site will function as an extension of your company values and services. Facebook only shows your posts to some of your customers and fans. You have to pay advertising fees to reach more. So while pages are free to set up, building an audience costs quite a bit of money on an ongoing basis. You do not actually “own” your web presence; you are at the mercy of Facebook and the decisions it makes to boost its bottom line. You can not reach customers who do not use Facebook

With so many choices available today, potential customers want to know what makes you different from the competition. A company website is much more conducive to relaying your story in a clear and engaging manner. Also most important is your site won't be subject to the effects of Facebook's ever-changing algorithm. Relying on that "Third-party site" means following their terms of service, like it or not

Domain Names

The Domain or URL you’ll need to give people to access your page just does not look very professional. Take RSH Web Services Face Book address:
https://www.facebook.com/rshweb/
Verses our Website UL:
https://rshweb.com/

Which would you rather see on your business cards

Email Accounts

You will not have a email account with Facebook, you will lose out on a professional looking email address to also add to your business cards. People who rely on Facebook tend to give out Gmail, Yahoo, or even Hotmail email addresses to customers and clients. Without a Website or a good email address, you give the impression that you do not really take your business seriously

The Bottom Line

If you want your business to grow and be successful, a dedicated website is the best solution. And once you build your site, you can link it to your Facebook page to build your audience twice as fast

Having a Website is easier than ever today
Fortunately, the process of building a website takes less time, costs less, and is easier than ever, so there’s no excuse not to have your own website

To get the most out of Facebook without being locked into the Facebook platform:

Register a Domain And then have it forward it to your Facebook page
