Which is best?

You might be wondering why you would bother creating a website when Facebook seemingly does the same thing. But before you write off having a website all together here are some of the benefits and drawbacks of each platform and why the answer might not be so straightforward.

  • Limited design options on Facebook make it difficult to stand out from your competitors.
  • Your potential customers or target demographic might not use Facebook.
