Top 10 Reasons why you should create a free website, today.
REASON #10 – Your Competition. If your company isn't in the top 30 search results when a lead searches for your product or service, then a competitor may be the only visible supplier. Provided that his/her website offers what the customer needs, your competitor gets the business. Many people use the Internet to find potential suppliers because the Internet does a great job of leveling the playing field. So a smart competitor with limited funds can be very visible if he focuses on Search Engine Optimization. You should use this site often and learn "how to create a free website", starting today, so you have a chance at getting good search rankings in the future.
REASON #9 – Time. You can not loan, borrow, create or save time. You can only use the random amount you have efficiently. Search Engine rankings do not improve overnight. Usually it will take 2 months or more to begin to get good rankings. So the earlier you create a site and get it online, the better your chances that you will eventually succeed in the search rankings struggle.
REASON #8 – Websites Are More Effective When Advertising. www.Dell.com generates over 30 Million Dollars a day in sales and has done so everyday for over a decade. It is run by a team of less than 20 people. That is what an optimized website can do; end rationalization on the part of owners of non-optimized websites. When you create a free website for business use, you also create a lot of new potential for your business.
REASON #7 – You Can Generate Leads. There ARE new potential customers that you are not aware of. There ARE new potential customers that are not aware of you either. They are probably trying to use the best tools to run their business and save money, so they use the Internet to do research on suppliers instead of doing the slower way. These are the preferred prospects that should be of interest to you. If you are not well represented online, they may drop you off their short list of potential suppliers. When you create a free website, the chances of getting more valuable leads goes way up.
REASON #6 – Human Nature. A most interesting phenomenon is that the Internet has put the potential purchaser in the driving seat. If a potential customer invites a salesman in, then this shows some interest in potential products or services. Checking out a website is anonymous: the supplier will probably not know the potential customer has visited until well after the fact in most cases. The potential purchaser can remain anonymous and maintain a negotiating advantage as long as they wish. Many purchasers prefer this extra flexibility that supplier websites give them because people naturally want the upper hand when negotiating ANYTHING, including where they spend money.
REASON #5 – You Can Get More Referrals. Suppose one of your best customers wants to do you a nice favor and tell one of his friends about your business. If you have a website, then your customer can give the prospect a link, which gets the prospect access to knowledge on what you offer. Without this tool, your customer is on his/her own with no help from you. You need to make a free website to ensure the proper sales message is transmitted.
REASON #4 – Return On Investment ROI, The Bottom Line. A radio spot, television commercial or company brochure may be very useful. However if you factor in the cost of producing or updating any of these and getting the contained message to customers then the Return On Investment (ROI) of these sales tools are poorer than the ROI on an optimized website. Radio has a limited audience that gets smaller everyday, Television is prohibitively expensive and paper is NOT environmentally friendly nor is it kept; which is why your waste basket if full of the stuff right now. A free website can only return profit, since you paid nothing to get it.
REASON #3 - Reality, The Year Is 2012. Your rather small business card no longer provides enough sales or marketing information. People want and need more information. Create a free website and put more information on it, so that potential customers get what they are looking for.
REASON #2 – You Run A Legitimate Business. A free website is a tool that can give the best possible and most complete image of your business to potential new customers. No many people will bother to visit your headquarters. Those that telephone your company may pick-up mixed signals as your telephone reception system handles their call. Your advertising and your press releases may get missed. However; on your website you can arrange for the visitor to get exactly the impression of the company that is most appropriate. Your free site is a no-cost way of making those important first impressions, 24 hours a day.
REASON #1 – NO WEBSITE = RED FLAG. We live in a modern age of technology and instant verification. Anyone interested in your company will "Google" (check out) your website as part of a basic credibility check. If your website does not exist or gives a poor impression of the company through typos or pages "Under Construction", then you may not be able to recover the situation. You should create a free website today!
Why you need to prepare to create a free website, before you do it.
Before you create a free website, you will need to do some preparation. What we mean by this is gathering your thoughts and content before you make your site. Some things you will need to have previously thought about include: titles, themes, text content, multimedia content and the intended purpose of the website (what exactly is this website going to do for you?). This may sound simple at first but you would be surprised by the number of aimless, topic-less, and overall pointless websites out there. You will want to complete this simple series of steps before you try to create a free website online.
Search Engines like Google send out little scouts (spiders) that feed on text content then report what they find to the mother Search Engine. These little robots do not really care about grammar, or if your pictures a very nice etc., they care about the amount of words on a page. Your websites human visitors however need to read complete thoughts that call them to actions like "click here, buy now, fill this out".., etc. So to satisfy both types of visitors you need to more or less, get all the materials together first, that you decide you need on your website. Then try to establish, what comes first then next, then last. This will make it very easy and much faster to actually build your free website. This will also save you massive amounts of time and be much more effective in the end. Remember the golden rule "build your website for people to visit, enjoy and understand".
Since www.MySafeMedia.com (The place where you create a free website - aka - MSM) allows you to build all kinds of sites (Blog, Photo Album, Fan Club, Private, Social Network, Music, Portfolio, Classifieds, Video Chat website, etc.), in order for you not to get confused you really need to think about what features you will use. A lot of people are still under the impression that it is hard to build a website, so when they click the button on MSM and it cranks one out in 2 seconds, they are taken by surprise and lose track of what to do next. This is where having your content ready to cut and paste comes in handy. This is where having the pictures you want to upload, is useful. This is where knowing what paragraph is first and which one is next becomes important. So hopefully you see what we mean here and will dedicate the 30 minutes of time it takes to gather your content before you try to make your website for the first time. This will help you save hours and hours of frustration and will help you to create a free website that visitors enjoy and perhaps even share with others. -CAFW

There is almost no limit to what kind of websites you can create there.

Many advanced features are available beyond the free selection. These include important add-ons like contact forms and even video-chat, which can be used with just one click. Previously to MySafeMedia coming online in 2008, there was really no way to create a free website with all the latest features unless you had a lot of money and a lot of help, in addition to a lot of time, to wait for it to get done. We have chosen to educate people on this fantastic option to create a free site because there are far too many less useful services being used by the public that do not have as many features nor are as easy to use.
