The Next Generation of "Websites" for Businesses?
To be honest, it seems like the traditional "website" is starting to phase out. The reason is simple: THE CONTENT IS STATIC!!! With all the social networking sites on the web, information is being created faster than people can absorb it. You used to be able to get away with a website that read, "last updated 4 months ago," but I think that will be less and less the case as time goes on.So what are your options? You can learn HTML, or hire a web designer and pay him to update your site weekly or bi-weekly, or you can make use of the FREE social-networking platforms that are already out there. Try these three to start:MYLOCALSPOT - Like a MySpace, but for businesses. Easy to use site lets you upload pictures, contact info, business description, current specials and a products/services list. Update it at any time and keep your customers up-to-date.WORDPRESS - Let`s you create a blog and prove that you`re an "expert" in your field. Great to backlink from (if you can get some traffic and good content). Templates are available everywhere, so u can make your blog`s appearance relate to your business. Keep it updated!SQUIDOO - Create your own "lens" (a.k.a. webpage). Customize it and talk about your business. Edit it`s look and feel and use it to keep customers up-to-date.
