Why should you have your own website?
I think that everyone agrees that the internet has become one of the most important marketing tools available. About 85% of all internet users inform themselves online before purchasing a service, product, or anything else they may be interested in. This means, that if you're selling something and don't have a website, you are missing out on potential customers on a daily basis. It doesn't matter which industry you are in.
Where there is disagreement is which platform to develope your website on. There are a lot of choices, with Word Press being the most popular. However, with Word Press being "Open Source", these sites can be hacked easily. There is another solution that includes hosting, automatic updates, security and it is simple to use.
