“Transcript of the Video”
Hey guys, Zack here in this video we’re going to talk about the question of a website. Do you need a website to start your virtual tour business and a truly scale it and grow it?
The question at hand is something that in a common place internet world of anything digital marketing everyone has a website, right? It’s obvious you need a website and of course you do well I want you to venture down a journey with me questioning this reality.
Do we really need a website like really, do you need a website to sell your service? What alternatives are there then building out a custom website that can help you still grow and scale quickly?
Here’s what I mean, as an entrepreneur your goal is to lower your risk, increase your upside the most you can, and make the most money you can as fast as you can without skipping important steps.
So, is a website an important step?
At first as a virtual tour provider it may seem I of course you need a place to show off your virtual tours but the truth is from what I’ve seen and I have software that analyzes and watches people to go on a website and different businesses that I own and scroll through them and read them and click and they click certain things and I get to watch their mouths move over the screen it’s pretty cool stuff and from what I’ve noticed is that certain folks that they’re trying to vet you go through your website and find a tail but certain prospects don’t really care.
Here’s what I mean, the website is more of a place to validate your exist in your real but not a place that sells the prospect from a local service provider standpoint. Here’s what I mean, if you’ve done a good job showing examples and showing what the output that solves their problem is going to look like they don’t really care how beautiful your website is. So, what I would advise you if you’re just getting started or you’re considering trying to grow your virtual tour business, have a couple examples on your website if you can have one at all and then move on that’s it.
If you have testimonials they’re cool even better that’s a place for customers to validate you would look at hey this person has done this before I’m not the first one because every customer doesn’t want to be the first person, that’s your customer.
So what this whole so the questions tool is a hand though do you really need a website to communicate those things? Maybe not and what I want to challenge you to do is before you make an elaborate website or before you add on to your current website.
I want you to email two examples or three examples of virtual tours you’ve done in the past or ones even other folks have done it that you know you can do and as demos and send them to a prospect and say, hey are you interested in this?
With no website behind it for them to click to and see their response you’ll be surprised that a website doesn’t hold that much weight in that solving of customer problems world and in their mind it’s a place to vet you yes it’s a place that they will if they’re going to work from you at scale they’re going to go through your website and click around and look at certain things but maybe all you need is a strong social presence and a place for people to go see examples and that’s it do you need to buy domain name for this to happen maybe not if you can show an example or even to show a video of you shooting at or somewhere maybe that’s all you need.
So, I want to challenge this social norm or this this internet Norm that you have to have a website to be an incredible business owner not necessarily true I think that tool was maybe overplayed and overpaid for as someone starting off who’s trying to get started from scratch and truly grow a business that is cash-strapped you’re not going to necessarily need the world’s best $10,000 website.
Just think about your prospect and your customer. What do they want? What problem it solve, and what examples that you’ve done you or you done before in the past and they want to trust you and build rapport if you can live a poor without website then do it especially if you can sell someone and get a purchase order without a website they don’t necessarily need it.
So, my advice is take certain aspects of your business with a grain of salt if they take a bunch of time seven days plus to put it together questions and say hey do I have to have this or can I make some examples and send them over to some prospects? If that’s true? Try it.
Okay guys that’s it for today it’s one a challenge this whole website idea do you possibly even need one there have to be elaborate with a bunch of pages probably not I think your best rapport building activities may not actually be building a website but talking to customers getting to know their problems and solving them through great service. Alright guys thanks for watching this video. I hope you have so much probable success in the future.
