You will be quite surprised to learn that a sizeable number of businesses do not have a dedicated business website.
You would think that in the modern and vastly digital 21st-century era that we live in, every business would have a dedicated business website.
Alas, that isn’t the case.
While every business wants to transform into a brand and have more people interact with it, the importance of having a business website is overlooked and instead, having a strong social media presence is given prime importance.
Having said that, Facebook is one of the largest social media platforms with a total of 2.27 billion active users. This is more than the population of China!
It’s obvious then — you should have a Facebook page for your business.
Probably, you already do. However, only having a Facebook page isn’t going to be enough.
You need to have a business website to reach people who are looking for you on search engines like Google and you need a website to capture existing traffic and to convert these visitors into customers.
Can I Use My Facebook Page To Create A Business Website?
The answer is YES! Although Facebook has more active users than the world’s most populated country, the internet has even more active users.
With a website, you can reach everyone around the globe and gain better control over your brand and identity.
Pagevamp is a digital platform that instantly creates an attractive, easy-to-use website directly from a Facebook Page.
While they primarily pull out information from your Facebook page to build your website, their platform is flexible and allows for customizations in terms of adding new content to the website.
In fact, Pagevamp conducted an experiment with one of their customers, a restaurant owner in Arizona, to gauge how much traffic her business website would generate as compared to her Facebook page.
The results were quite astonishing!
They found that not only did her website get significantly more visitors than her Facebook page (about 55x more!), but she got significantly more reservations (paying customers!) from the phone number listed on her website.
