Do I need a website to build a business?

A lot of my coaching clients get stuck on the tech-aspect of creating a business.

After all, this is the day of DIGITAL. Chances are, the first place people go to find you is Google. Smart phones have changed the world – Apps, social, techie, searchable, review-based…. The list goes on for digital!

But let’s say that tech is not your strength. AND let’s say you’re a one-woman (or man) show, starting from ground up. How do you set your priorities? Here are my two cents for Kate in Texas:

Tweet this: For #MusicTherapy business owners: Don’t get stuck with tech! Have faith in PEOPLE, not technology.

What’s YOUR advice or experience to share with Kate?

    Yes Kat! What did we do before websites?! Build Relationships. I love it!

      Right? =) Digital is GREAT, but it can also DISTRACT us from building our business…

    Love this idea! It is difficult to do EVERYTHING! I just had a table at a “community days” yesterday and was positioned next to the local Rotary Club! They, of course, asked about music therapy, and wanted me to join the club (which I am not doing right now because there are too many other things on my plate to join something with weekly meetings! yikes!) but they asked if I would speak at one of their meetings—which, of course– I accepted!

    Oh Kat, Kat, Kat! I have thought so much about this since our conversation and have RELEASED myself from the pressure of building the perfect website. Now that I am thinking about it as another form of my business card, I’m EXCITED to tackle this smaller project in August! Thanks for your words of wisdom, and, as always….cutting to the chase! Chase THIS!

    Well said, Kat. I absolutely feel like my website is an online business card more than anything else. For me, the most important thing is follow-up – answering a phone call or email as soon as possible, answering questions and getting that family into my studio for some facetime.

    Well said Kat. This applies to many situations in life, not just building websites :)
