Social media platforms are making it easier and easier for businesses who don’t have eCommerce stores to get out there and sell their goods and services online. New innovations through these platforms do offer seemingly quick and easy alternatives to the widely perceived huge capital outlay of a website. That most people imagine take months to build.
For many small businesses, the reasoning is that their customers hang out there, it is easy for them to connect and talk to their audience from their phones and the best part is, it is all free.
Those people are not wrong.
So why should I pay for a website?
Social media has changed the way we live, the way we interact with people and transact with the world around us. Innovations and change are awe-inspiring, rapid and formidable. Changes and algorithms dominate the landscape.
More than once all of us have experienced waking up in the morning to find the layout of platforms have changed, new features have replaced old ones and a brand new set of rules dictates everything from what we can post, to who owns what has been completely overhauled from the way it was just the day before.
As social media users, business owners, influencers and customers we are beholden to these changes and have absolutely no control over them. None of us are immune.
And the very real reality is that we could all wake up tomorrow and find that the rules have changed and the rug has been pulled out from underneath us. We lose access to our clients, customers and audience and the door is shut between us and our business that was booming 24 hours before.
While powerful and productive, social media is not a platform we own. We use them and have to abide by the rules that are presented. Or we can’t use them anymore. It’s that simple.
Sounds like the free option has the potential to be unstable, fickle and like something we can’t control. I don’t know about you, but the free version sounds like an expensive one.
