Why You Should Value Your Website as an Asset

Valuing your website is similar to evaluating other business balance sheet items.

Are you valuing your website as an asset?

Websites have been around for 25 years now for most mainstream businesses, but remarkably, many companies treat their website investment as a marketing expense when it is an asset. The test for an asset is if it has future realizable value to a business? Does yours?

Is your business guilty of building a new website only to leave it static for three years, trash it and go again?

Your business's website is your most powerful marketing tool. It's where your prospects go to learn about your business, and it's also the ongoing salesperson that nurtures new leads through the buying process.

An asset's value can be increased by investment, or neglect can decrease its value. While building a website for your business, consider it an asset.

The future value of your website is not just to do with getting traffic to your site. The future value of your website is that it is a channel of conversion. It is a conversion to sale, a conversion to lead, a conversion to subscription.

Website owners who take a longer-term view and see their website as an asset are rewarded with increased sales.

The biggest single problem facing a website today is the lack of planning or budgeting. Those who commission the site often don't understand the medium, and the people building it are expected to conjure a website out of thin air.

B2C companies that blogged 11+ times per month got more than 4X as many leads as those that blog only 4-5 times per month.

Why is this important? Seeing your website as an asset and not an expense has the board and senior management more willing to take a long-term view of websites and invest accordingly.

Great high income generating websites take years to evolve. With a strong focus on Growth-Driven Design, this can be possible.

Are you using a robust marketing technology platform like HubSpot to get serious productivity gains in lead management and content creation?

Your website is where you should stop spending money on traditional advertising and start looking for a new way to get people interested in you, your products, and your services.
