4 Reasons You Should Have Your Own Website
“Why should I have my own website? What can I use my own site for?”
Whether you have your own business, you’ve recently graduated or you do freelancing, there are many benefits to having your own website. Yet many people are unaware of the positive influence a personal website can have on their professional career.
Here are four important reasons for you to get started on your own personal website.
1. Build Your EthosHaving your own website sends a strong professional message. It shows that you care about your profession and/or personal interests.
Let people know you are knowledgeable and up-to-date with the industry by posting informing and relevant content on your website. This also shows that you are dedicated and put a lot of thought into your job.
BONUS: By owning a website you get to call yourself a “webmaster”! It has a pretty nice ring to it, don't you think?
2. Be Found OnlineWe live in a digital world, and inevitably future employers and clients will search for information about you online.
They might find your Facebook or LinkedIn profile, but there are limits to how much you can promote yourself on social media. On your own website, there are no limits to how you can express yourself. It’s basically your online business card and resume combined in one!

By including a portfolio or a blog full of well-written articles, as well as testimonials, you can demonstrate what makes you unique.
