5 Reasons your Brand’s Website is Still your Most Important Marketing Tool

Social media marketing has exploded as a practice and has brought with it a wealth of articles discussing the diminishing effect it is having on the importance of a brand’s own website. Some have gone as far as to say that there is now an opportunity to completely remove your company’s website and replace it with a well maintained and strategic social media presence. Whereas this might appear a “cutting edge” strategic move, there are several reasons that a website remains your most important marketing tool:

1. Unrestricted creativity

Every social media platform will restrict in some way how you display your brand and the type of content you share. Examples of frustrations that exist are limits on the size of files that can be uploaded, the character length of a post, the layout of your profile or the dimensions of your artwork.

Such formulaic formatting can make it difficult to stand out from the crowd, particularly for creative brands who need to promote innovation and differentiation as characteristics at the heart of their company.

A good developer will help bring out the non-conformist in you, helping you believe “anything is possible” in website design and development. Building a “bespoke” website is the fast lane to bypass the congestion of the more static brands on social media.
