Why You Need a Website

Posted on Posted in News, Photography

I have a Facebook. Why do I need a website?

Because Google Says So

Google is so ingrained in our culture that it has gone from being a math noun that nobody can comprehend, to being a verb that people use multiple times a day. Seriously. Pay attention (pretend it’s a drinking game) and count how many times you hear someone say “Google it” in any given day.

Okay so… Google takes you to my Facebook page, right?

Well… sort of. It does, but think about what people see when they’re on your page. Take for example, our dear friend Katie Scott Jones at Ruffles and Rompers. Here’s a glimpse of her Facebook page at this moment in time:

The information is there. You can see that the store is closed. You can see an adorable photo that someone took of their little girl in those SCRUMPTIOUS shoes that smell so sweet! But the problem here is that Facebook is “fluid” and you never know what you’re really gonna get. Now take a look at her website:

I mean… right? How adorable is that?? Doesn’t it make you just want to call the store and give Katie your credit card number and have it all shipped to you?? Both little girls look like angels but WOAH doesn’t the professional photography make a huge difference here? (We didn’t do Katie’s site, but not everyone is lucky enough to have a hunky programmer tucked away in their home and a BFF who is a nationally recognized photographer!) Your website is YOUR chance to show people what YOU want them to see. You have a captive audience. They didn’t accidentally click on your link. They’re in YOUR space. Tell them YOUR story.

Our Promise to You

We promise to never leave you hanging out there with iPhone pics and broken links. We promise to make you look like you are running a million dollar corporation…even if you’re doing it out of the trunk of your car. We promise to spell check and proof read and grammar obsess over every single word. Your image is our reputation and that’s the most important thing in the world to us…right after SEC football. We promise.
