Will having a website improve the volume of projects they are obtaining? Will creating an identity help in impressing the clients that scout for freelancers on the internet?If you are one of those freelancers with such questions on your mind, you are not alone. There are many such freelancers who are in the same dilemma as you are. From a larger perspective, it has been observed that there is a divided opinion among freelancers in answering the question.Creating a website and maintaining it does not come cheap. While owning a domain name is not very expensive, creating the right content can be. Also, there is a necessity for you to have the right adwords such that there is more traffic generated to your website. This is again a costly affair as you need to pay to the search engine for certain adwords when ever they are clicked by a user.Even though generation of traffic does not come easy, there are many who believe and have experienced an increase in the number of clients by owning a website. There are many who perceive that with a website there is an identity for yourself on the internet which will help embellish your accomplishments as well as provide a feel-good factor for your clients.At the same time, there are others who feel that having a website in no way increases the face value and they feel that they can obtain adequate workload by other means such as developing a good client contact base and with having their profiles on other freelance websites which has good amount of web traffic already. They feel that this will help them in concentrating on their work more and would not necessitate spending time on any unnecessary things such as trying to improve the traffic to the website.While some think that having a website is highly advantageous there are many others that think that having a website is in no way of an extra benefit. The perceptions of each one differ and how you lean is dependent on how you feel about the whole issue.
