I have a Facebook page and it's free. Do I really need a website?
Social media is just what it implies. SOCIAL media. If you are running a business you may want people to take you seriously. Walking around handing out flyers and using Facebook or other social media as your primary means to establish legitimacy is not the best way to go. Facebook is useful to attract your circle of friends and it is useful to give a short overview of your business, group or product. Details can then be posted on your website such as a menu for your restaurant, activities and meeting information for your business, showcasing product that are for sale. The website and your social media pages are then linked together. Strangers looking for something that is unique to you such as a restarant may never find you on Facebook.
People looking for a specific business, group or product can input limited information into a search engine that will find you.
Use your social media and website together for best results.
