Congratulations! You’re finally starting your own business

Now, one of the important things you need to set up is a website. If you don’t have one, your competitors might overtake you. 

Why should I build a website for my business?

Your website is your virtual store! You can showcase the products and services you offer without making people visit your physical location. In fact, you might not even need to have a brick-and-mortar shop as long as you have a site.
