I use Facebook Do I need a website?

If you are a social network guru using facebook for your small ventures like running a society, a band/group, a welfare project or just a community/friends get together page, etc. then a yourown.com website can add a professional touch and loads of functionality to your venture! 

You might ask:
 

WHAT IS IT THAT I DON’T GET WITH A FACEBOOK PAGE? 

 

1 A PROFESSIONAL LOOK: A Facebook page however professional look you may give it, will always give a feel of “something created by an amateur social networking youth” and not a professional feel. On the other hand, a www.yourname.com however unprofessionally it might be designed will give a feel of a serious effort perhaps because it involves costs (although these might be very little) whereas a Facebook page is free to make.
 

2 LOADS OF FUNCTIONALITIES: You can use the latest CMS platforms such as Wordpress and Joomla with hundreds of thousands of extensions that extend their capabilities to create websites with unlimited features; the sky is the limit. Literally whatever can come to your mind can be put up on your website, such as slideshows, contact us pages, search engine optimizations, website statistics (knowing your visitors), creating your own music/video libraries, Testimonials page, Discussion Forum, Newsletter subscriptions, Customer Support Systems, Ecommerce (selling your products) and what not! You think of something you need on your website and that can be put on your site. Whereas with Facebook, you can only use the limited functionalities that Facebook has provided and you cannot extend beyond that.
 

3 PERSONALIZED EMAIL: Have you ever thought of how professional a personalized email would look like on a CV, such as This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. instead of that lame yahoo or hotmail one such as This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . You get a personalized email free with your domain registration. Such a professional email creates an impression on the guy shortlisting the candidates and its very possible that he says “Hmmm… interesting email, lets check out his website” and he visits your website that has your details and stuff that might be good enough to impress him to give you an interview call. If you get a good job by having a great personal website you made about yourself, then the tiny costs that you incurred are worth it.

4 EARN FROM YOUR SITE: A Facebook page cannot be monetized but a website can be! You can earn money with your website sitting at home! There are lots of ways of earning through a website (you can google that to find how), but the fact is that loads of people out there are earning money from their websites even while they are sleeping! Does that motivate you enough?

 

OK, I AM CONVINCED! 

SO DO I NEED TO DUMP MY FACEBOOK PAGE? BUT MY PAGE HAS THOUSANDS OF LIKES AND I HAVE INVESTED MONTHS OF MY ENERGY AND TIME IN IT?

Certainly not! You need to cash your audience of Facebook by connecting it to your website! That is, you make a website and integrate it with your Facebook page so that you can send visitors to your website and Facebook back and forth. Both of these platforms will work hand in hand creating a great platform for your audience to interact with you or your organization. But you need to have a website to “unleash this potential”. Without a website, with having a Facebook page alone, you cannot do that.

 

MYTH: BUT I AM A STUDENT, I CAN’T AFFORD THE COSTS OF A WEBSITE!

Many young people might be intimidated with the thought of paying for a website! Paying is not what a student might like but still students today pay a Rs 1,000 bill easily on one meal at a tikka house or a pizza shop, without realizing that they can get a .com domain name in about the same amount for one whole year!!! Plus also the hosting costs are also not that much these days globally and in Pakistan. EyeDeoSol is providing very low cost packages for complete website solutions such as the “Students Package” which includes a Domain + Hosting + Web Designing. So these are turnkey solutions to a complete website at very low cost.
 

So, are you ready to rock with your website?
