Why Having A Website Isn’t Enough Anymore

By Kryss Shane

A History Lesson… Pre-Internet
In the days before the internet, if a person wanted to reach people, s/he had to go door to door to hand out resumes. If a company wanted to reach people, they had to spend lots of money on advertising on television, radio, and in newspapers. People never knew if they were knocking on the right doors and companies never knew whether the money they spent on advertisements was worth it.

A History Lesson… Early Internet
When most people first had computers and internet access, having a website was the gold standard in advertising one’s self or one’s product. A person or advertising agency could simply create a website with information and it would remain available to be read indefinitely! This was better than knocking on doors or hoping commercials aired at a time when potential customers were most likely to be paying attention. Eventually though, this stopped being enough. Think of this as showing up at an office with your resume, leaving it on the company’s doorstep, and hoping the boss reads it. Think of it as stapling advertisement flyers to lamp posts and hoping people read it when they walk by. Not so effective, right?!
