The first question that comes to a human mind is, why one needs a website?
Another important aspect would be that is it a need or a want? And what one would want to achieve out of it?
All of the above questions are critical and vital to evaluate. So, let’s address one by one.
A website is an e.business-card. While you are busy in fulfilling other roles, this e.card will help you promote your business and other potential prospects will benefit by being empowered by this tool. It will help you tap the immense opportunities that you will benefit by describing your values, thoughts, feelings, emotions and much more. The language plays a very vital role in a website. The way you address your target market makes you win the game. Each page on a website has to be customized and the lingo has to be accordingly. It’s like you live in a mansion and each room has custom design and decoration. More importantly the message you want to convey to your target market has to be delivered in a way that its perception value remains same. Sometimes a website can explain more about the business than your own 30-second elevated speech. Now, I think you get an answer to your most important question that why you need a website? Atleast one can find you anywhere and everywhere.
After reading this you will agree that having a website is not a want anymore. Whether you agree or not, after having more than 350 million website on the World Wide Web, having a website is the need of the day. What you want to achieve today from a website should depend on your business goals.
And before you go any further I would like to emphasize a fact that you should have a website before you launch your business. Make sure you design and develop your website keeping your target market in mind. Practice and run every aspect of your website. Launching a business without a website is dangerous and might hurt you even before you realize.
Having a website means having right branding for the right audience. The colors you choose will play an essential role in your success. By having a website your business has passed all geographic boundaries and is open for all.
In a nut shell, whether you are an entrepreneur, expanding a business, investor, retailer, a franchiser/ franchisee, band or a musician, a writer or even a service provider – you need a website.

The Importance of Marketing for the Success of a Business
Marketing is the backbone of any business:
People must know YOU – Get your name Out
For a business to succeed, the product or service it provides must be known to potential buyers. Unless your business is known in your community or target market and have communication with your customers readily available, no one will buy from you.
It helps get more sales. As awareness becomes a reality, it is also the point where new customers start to spread the word, telling friends and family about this amazing new product they discovered. Your sales will steadily increase as the word spreads.
Brand image can only be build with the help of marketing.
Marketing also fosters an environment in the marketplace for healthy competition. With marketing efforts you will set out your pricing, discounts, promotions, new product developments, etc, which not only reaches the intended consumers, but also reaches other companies competing for the consumers’ business and this will give you edge over your competitors.
Although marketing is hugely important for a business to succeed, it can also be very expensive. In its first year, a company might spend more than what is expected on marketing programs. After the first year, a marketing budget can reach as much as 30 percent—sometimes more—of the annual sales. A marketing program that gives your company the best chance is a healthy mix of different forms of marketing, such as website development, public relations, print and broadcast advertising, design and printing for all print materials, trade shows and other special events, etc.
And in order to achieve all this you need a marketing plan. Your marketing plan would have a comprehensive marketing strategy, sales tactics and your projected sales verses your expenses. This marketing expense could be converted into your investment as you are expecting a return out of it.

Calculative risks are always better as they involve less financial burden and are simply less stressful. Your life would be a bit easy when you know what you need (money wise) and where to get it.
It clarify your thoughts
By writing a business plan you are clarifying all complexities in running your business and it gives you an insight that whether your business idea is worth giving a shot or not.
It helps determine the financial health of your products/ service
By doing the right market research it gives you a vision to evaluate the worth of your products and services and see if it will really benefit the consumers or not. It also elaborates the facts that whether your “value-added preposition” will actually have an edge among your competitors.
It gives you an estimate of your start-up costs and how much you’ll need to invest or finance to run the business
This is an important aspect of your business. With the right calculations, your projected financial statements can give you a realistic and optimistic snapshot of how much money you will need to start the business and what will be your break-even point.
