It is generally accepted that every business should have a website but not so much as an individual. The reason people don’t see the need to have a personal website is that they don’t approach their work as a business. It is important to run your work as a business because it puts you in a better position to get more job offers or land more clients.
Let’s explore why you need a personal website:
- Increase Visibility Have you ever tried to search for a product or service on google and to your dismay, there was no relevant information on their product or services? Maybe, you saw their social media handle but you needed more. I have been there and I know that you likely have experienced this. When this happens it immediately turns me off and most times influence my purchasing decision. Job recruiters or clients are known lately to check their employers or job hunters’ profile on the web, having a website would give a great impression and shows professionalism.
- Edge in your market Most times, what you need is an edge in the market to get yourself more opportunities, and a website can give you that edge. In business, your ability to get more clients or land more jobs is to create a good impression, and having a website gives a very good impression. It shows professionalism and gives you that added advantage over your competitors.
- Saves you the stress unlike resumes, you don’t need multiple websites for different products or services to land different jobs or clients. For example, Sharon Idahosa’s website shows that she is a business consultant, speaker, and business developer. She doesn’t need multiple websites to get a client for speaking, business development, and consulting.
- Easier to earn trust You can voice your opinion about the sector you are in and give ways to solve some of the problems that are in your sector or provide a solution that potential clients might need through blogging. This shows that you know your work and makes it easier for clients or job recruiters to trust you because they know what you stand for.
