Without having an SSL Certificate you stand to put your visitors in danger and eventually lose them.More reasons why this is important:Encrypt sensitive information – without an HTTPS connection, the computer in between you and the server will be able to see sensitive information, like credit card numbers and passwords. With an SSL, this information is unreadable except to the server the data is being sent to.Credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login details can be transmitted securely with HTTPS in place.Provides data protection from online hackers and criminals – online criminals are great at identifying any weakness in networks. T
hey usually strike gold at the point where information is being transmitted. Without the ability to encrypt traffic, you run the risk of being hacked, having information stolen, and more. Build more trust with customers – building trust with your customers is one of the most important parts of running a successful company in 2018. With trust comes customer loyalty. SSL security reassures customers that their information is safe with just a few visual cues.
You boost your business credibility on top of this.This is also relevant because: HTTPS gives a stronger ranking on Google.You will create safer experiences for your customers.You will build customer trust and improve conversions over time.You will protect both sensitive customer and internal data.You will encrypt browser-to-server and server-to-server communication.You will increase the security of your mobile and cloud apps.You will protect against phishing.If your website doesn’t have an SSL Certificate soon you will not see your website on Google or Firefox because they will consider it a risk to their platform. And they are doing it now because I was told and read that Google wants all websites to be HTTPS and get rid of HTTP. And I have seen it myself.
I understand the reasons why you don’t have website or your resist from having one: “I’m not tech-savvy”, “they’re too expensive”, “I don’t have the time to take of a website”, And the best one of all I have enough business I don’t need one.” Well, I want to let know a little secret you don’t need to be tech-savvy, you can get a professional web designer that will fit your budget. And for you not having a website is costing you
time and money.
Did you know that 81% of people research a business or services on the internet before making a purchase or making the decision to purchase from you online or to enter your store or restaurants? Yet 46% of business owners listed that they don’t need a website as their #1 reason for not having a website.
1.) Having a website will attract new customers to your business and make you more money.
I want to repeat this: 81% of people research your business or services online before they decide to purchase from you or use your services. If you don’t have a website, you don’t have a chance to capture a share of the market.
Your website is available 24/7/365, even when you’re not. Your website is making money for you when you’re asleep.
Your website helps you convert more with existing referrals because they compare your site with companies like yours.
2.) It adds instant credibility to your business by merely having a website.
The consumer is a skeptic; in fact, 56% of people stated that they don’t trust a business without a website. Having a website lets boost your website credibility as a legitimate business.
You are making the right impression for the first time, with a well-designed website
A website can help you showcase your expertise and better position your business. You can use several tools to standing out in a crowd.
3.) It’s not as hard, or as expensive, as you think.
You don’t need to be tech-savvy to have a website. There are plenty of web development companies that have straightforward website setups.
It is very cost-effective. Websites offer a better return on investment than other forms of advertisement.
Over time the low investment that is having a business website we pay
big dividends by driving your customers to your website and not your
social media page.
4.) Having a website will help you save time.
Your website can save you time by providing answers to typical customer’s questions and inquires. What does this mean it means that your business work for you while you spend time doing other valuable things.
5.)Stay in control of your brand.
Websites act as a platform for messaging and shapes the online perception of your business in a way that social media can’t provide
The platforms allow you to position yourself in the market to get the exact type of customers you’re looking for.
It’s not easy being a entrepreneur
Did you think it was going to be easy becoming a entrepreneur?
You know the struggle is real when it comes to being an entrepreneur. I was at Amy Porterfield Entrepreneur Experience a couple of weeks ago, and I met a lot of awesome women in all different industries. You know we all were saying the same thing its hard we are scared of failing and we are tired of playing small ball with our business.
Amy had some excellent speakers.
Amy Porterfield: I teach business owners, educators, and entrepreneurs the practical action steps for building a highly engaged email list, creating online training courses, and using online marketing strategies to sell with ease.
Rachel Hollis: is an American author, motivational speaker, and blogger. Her first self-help book Girl, Wash Your Face—since its release in February 2018—has maintained a spot in the top 10 best-selling books in the country for seven months, held the top spot for 12 of those weeks and has sold more than 880,000 total copies in the United States.
Stu McLaren: My name is Stu McLaren, and I help experts transform their knowledge and influence into recurring revenue by launching, growing, and scaling seven and 8-figure membership sites.
You know it was good to see all of them finely. It was good to hear these people talk and to listen to our ideas and our fears. Amy talks to us about how she wants to help us move to the next level. What I liked about this experience that they were honest with us, and I love the quote Rachel Hollis put out there (Hard is the Price of Admission), and you know she is right.
I find that entrepreneurs that go into business go in for the wrong reason, or when they see how hard it is to run a business, they quit. It’s about making fast money and not solving their customer’s problems or giving them value to the service they provide.
I want to say this with the right mentor and community; you have the opportunity to learn how to build a successful business and have a community that will help with your wins and losses. I showed you a few of my mentors above find a community of like-minded women entrepreneurs like you.
YOU’RE A BIG DEAL!!
