Are Business Websites Dead in 2024?

I was shell-shocked...

At a moment’s notice I began to question all of the hard work that I’ve put in the last 6 months to a year to relaunch our web design product. It seemed I was at the peak of my excite until I spoke to my mentor.  My mentor is a well established and ultra successful who new what Digital Business Growth offered and understood the journey that I’ve been and am currently on however when he made this statement, I questioned everything I’ve done up to this point.

Websites Are Dead???

My mentor said this statement boldly and without hesitation:

“Websites are DEAD.”

I had no response, no rebuttal, only a blank stare that he could probably hear over the phone. I immediately began to question myself:

  • the time and money I put into my own website’s experience
  • the research we as a team at Digital Business Growth were putting in for the future of this department
  • the level of excitement I had and the energy I was sowing into our web team

 

But like the air of a balloon in contact with a popcorn ceiling, all of the excitement I was filled with instantly disintegrated.

This in turn have led me to do some soul searching. Have you ever asked or thought to yourself:

  1. Am I ignoring the signs of failure and just too stubborn to quit?
  2. Am I putting my ego and personal agenda before the needs of my customers?

 

If you’ve answered yes, you’re not alone. If you haven’t asked these questions then today is a good day to start lol.

This has led me to address the elephant in the room and I was and still willing to make the right decision based upon the needs of my target audience. People like yourself, who desire to avoid or overcome burnout and have the time, energy, and money for a fulfilling family life and things they enjoy!

Here it is…

…”In this fast-paced, social media driven, digital world of 2024, does my business still need a website?”

This question, despite sounding reasonable amidst the rapid digital evolution, has a simple answer – An emphatic “YES!” and I am here to prove it to you.

A well-structured website is not merely an online presence for your brand. It’s a critical vehicle of the customer journey, offering a focused platform where prospects can explore your offerings. Thanks to AI technology integration, websites today can significantly personalize the user experience, boosting engagement and conversion rates.

A website is a powerful tool for attracting warm leads – individuals already interested in your brand and more likely to engage with your content. Remember, when people search for a product or service online, they usually head straight to business websites.

A robust website offers a compelling competitive edge. It is the bridge that connects prospects to your brand story and mission, elements often forgotten or diluted in the fluctuating algorithms of social media platforms.

Renowned sources such as HubSpot, The Hired Guns, Bluehost, and Forbes affirm the indispensability of websites in modern business operations. Fortune companies, epitomes of forward-thinking strategy, continue to leverage their websites for customer engagement, credibility establishment, and captivating story narration.

As we navigate the digital landscape of 2024, websites have transitioned from mere sales tools to platforms designed to nurture long-lasting customer relationships. Your website is the cornerstone of your digital identity, a sanctuary for relationship building, away from the noise of social media.

Our conclusion is clear and simple – your business needs a website in 2024, perhaps more now than ever before.

I Did the Unthinkable and Thrived

I Did the Unthinkable and THRIVED!

Since owning my first business in 2008 on Philadelphia’s infamous South St. at the age of 23, I knew entrepreneurship was a journey I would always be on however in this season I was too tired to fight the same fight, both internally and with my wife and I knew I was on the verge of quitting…

Since owning my first business in 2008 on Philadelphia’s infamous South St. at the age of 23, I knew entrepreneurship was a journey I would always be on however in this season I was too tired to fight the same fight, both internally and with my wife and I knew I was on the verge of quitting…

Have You Ever Hit Rock Bottom?

In the fall of 2022, I was living in Los Angeles, California, the city of sunshine and good vibes but instead my days were dreary and I was down to my last straw before the life that I knew could soon be over.

Since owning my first business in 2008 on Philadelphia’s infamous South St. at the age of 23, I knew entrepreneurship was a journey I would always be on however in this season I was too tired to fight the same fight, both internally and with my wife and I knew I was on the verge of quitting

My wife was less than half a step out the door of our marriage and she was taking our two beautiful children with her. You could cut the tension in our house with a butter knife as responses were short, faces were always serious and eye contact was few and far in between. This was not a surprise given our marriage seemed to be rocky off and on for what seemed to be our entire 8 year marriage.

But this time I was at the end of my rope.

Instead of maneuvering my way back onto what I thought was solid ground in our relationship as I have in the past,  I instead, with my hands quivering and thoughts racing, took the most attractive yet frightening offer, I’ve ever received in my life.

It was something my wife certainly didn’t expect me to do. But I as I do in the swimming, jumped all in.

What did I do you may be asking? What is this unthinkable act?

I QUIT!

Yes, I said it. I quit.

I was always taught that quitters never win and winners never quit however when I decided to quit trying to look the part no matter what I knew and instead be the part no matter how I looked i instantly won.  I turned away from everything I thought I knew in exchange for truth and it was one of the greatest victories I’ve ever experienced in my life.

I quit thinking I knew what it took to be a great husband to my wife

I quit thinking I knew what it took to be a great father to my children

I quit thinking I knew what it took to be a successful business owner

As a result, I’ve discovered a 4 step process that has allowed my wife and I to make business decisions together, grow our income over 90% in the past year and put us on a path to to profitably operating in our purpose with our children engaged.

What’s the 4 step process?

  1. Story – What story are you telling to your customers and employees but more importantly what story are you telling yourself?
  2. Service – We’ve all been born with a unique gift to serve to the world, what can you uniquely deliver and what audience is starving to have it?
  3. Structure – A clear vision is never accomplished without boundaries. Having the proper structure ensures your vision is protected from distractions and the irrelevant
  4. Strategy – Now that you have a designated lane for your vehicle, you can map out the best route and ensure you’re prepared in advance for the journey

You see, when I decided to focus on loving others I also decided to prioritize my character.

  • Before my ego
  • Before what my low self esteem could conjure up
  • Even before my social media profile

This led to me discovering this framework that was right in front of me the last 15 years. The same principles the top 1% of Fortune 500 companies are using that you, the business owner, have access to thrive.

There are deeper conversations that are to be had with this framework and it continues to lead me to new levels of success in my marriage, my role as a father and in my business. I am privileged and honored to be standing here on the other side of the wall I was trapped behind to tell you, it’s available for you too!

Here’s to the walls hindering your success in business and in life being demolished!

It’s time to start living that life you’ve always dreamed of!
