Who are these Crazy People who make Websites?

Today, you find a website for every other thing in the world. Right from safety pins to Audi cars, you can find almost everything on web.

All that you find when you Google are just list of websites ordered according to your query.

 

I work in one of the world’s biggest software MNC. At my office, whenever we have an issue with the coding of the software, my colleagues keep saying that they found the answer for the issue on Google.

They give all the credit to the Google. But that’s not right! You should know that Google only lists websites.

It is the websites that have the information you are looking for and not Google. So, you must be thanking that particular website and even Google too.

 

Well, then, a quick question pops up. Who makes such website with all that useful information? The answer is people like you. Yeah, you!

Lets say you are good a cooking, well, why not teach it to the world? If you are good at coding, then write about it.

 

This might not be very convincing for you to make your own website. Well, then, let me give you some good reasons to start a website today, may be right now!

 

 

Why do you need a website?

There are thousands reasons why you need a website. I will list just a few.

 

1. Promote or sell your products
A website allows you to showcase your products for everyone to see. You can explain the benefits, compare it with other products, or show testimonials of happy customers that already bought the product. This way you can sell your products to customers from all corners of the world.

 

2. Promote your services
It is hard to showcase services in a store, or office. The web allows you to introduce the service, the professionals providing the service, and how several services can complement each other.

 

3. Make a marriage website
They say – Marriages are made in heaven. It is one such event which comes just once in a lifetime. Why not make it big? Making a marriage website is a great idea. You can have your invitation, photos and event place put on it. It can contain various other information like bus routes, routes from various places and more such useful information. Later, you can upload your marriage photos too. May be a year after, your cute looking kid can also be on the website.

 

4. Share your life experiences
You may be a traveler, a hobby guitarist, an awesome photographer or something more cool. Why not share that with the world. Who knows, you might become a celebrity over night.

 

5. Promote your organization
People buy from people. People support organizations and causes that they believe in. A website is a fantastic tool to promote an organization and build trust – that is, if you do it right… A well-developed website can convey trust and credibility, making people to buy from you, or support you.

 

6. Promote yourself
Whether you are a professional who is looking for a job, or an expert in your industry, you can show that to the whole world by having a comprehensive website. The use of an associated email address also increases perceived professionalism.

 

7. Promote your ideas
Political campaigns are now all over the web. A website can be a powerful way to promote your ideas, and build a following of like-minded people.

 

8. Promote your events
Have a fund-raising event? Want to promote your business with seminars, workshops or a trade show? You will increase awareness when you create a website for the event. Show dates, programs, prices and driving directions – to name but a few features that will be greatly appreciated by your target audience.

 

9. Build a community
Want to be perceived as a leader? Want people talking about you, or provide a platform for people to share ideas and ideologies? A website, especially with a forum or bulletin board, can be a great help in building an online community.

    • Yeah, It is best suitable to make certain category of websites. The main reason I suggest this web service is because of the domain name. Usually free domain web site builders have a undesirable domain names. Blogspots, wordpress are common. But uCoz has various domain names to choose from.

    Would appreciate a reply, sheejasthoughts @gmail.com

    Thanks for your post, am sure many must be using this info 🙂

    • Hi Sheeja.
      This post was written long back. So the website I created must be deleted.

      Yeah, they initially give you just 400 MB which would eventually increase.

      You can upload your videos to youtube.coma and post them on your website.

  36. Nice post, one can check blogger.com too as they are connected to google facilitate in many aspects, see one of my site with them.
