Outside of your day job, what’s your passion? Maybe it’s teaching a music class, designing clothes, dog walking, writing, playing in a band, or cooking. And maybe you’ve set the foundation for starting your own business — but there’s something missing.
You need to get people to recognize you and know what your business is all about — so how do you do that?
There have never been more tools available to help you make your dream come true. One important component of your business is having a website to showcase your products or services. People search the web for answers every second of the day, and you don’t want to miss out on the potential customers you could get by not having a website.
There are so many great solutions to choose from and whether you decide to do it yourself or work with a web-building pro, you won’t regret having a website. GoDaddy provides a DIY website builder tool that helps make it easy to build a professional-looking website that’s easily updated from your desktop, tablet, or smartphone.
Does it work?
You’re likely asking yourself if creating a website is really that easy, whether the website tool works, or if it’s all too good to be true. We get you.
Take Toronto Raptors basketball player, CJ Miles, as an example. Shooting guard Miles worked with GoDaddy to help him launch CJ’s PJs — a collection of fun Raptors-inspired sleepwear.
Miles put his trust in GoDaddy to create the e-commerce site that he’s now using to sell his pajamas: CJsPJs.ca. And while Miles won’t be hanging up his jersey any time soon to start a real small business — the net proceeds from the pajamas will be donated to The Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, a cause close to CJ’s heart.
The point is, you can take your passion project and turn it into a business with GoDaddy’s help. Whether you’re trying to sell pajamas, start a snow removal company, or set up online appointments for your salon, you can start making it happen when you have a solid website.
GoDaddy currently has over 18 million customers worldwide and 77 million domain names under management. It’s a one-stop-shop where you can name your idea, build a professional website, attract customers, and manage your work. Not to mention their amazing free and friendly 24- hour customer service.
It gives you the tools you need, without the hassle of trying to do it all yourself. After all, you could have a basketball career that requires your attention.
