I don’t have to tell you your website is important.  Online competition and marketing is now the most competitive field in the professional industry and there is a reason for that.  Customers are online all the time, searching and browsing for your products and services.  So why have you put off the importance of how your website looks and feels?  Could your website actually be jeopardizing potential business opportunities because it’s outdated, unprofessional or lacking key information?  I pose these questions because many people we talk to just believe by merely having something online they have done their due diligence.  It could not be more untrue. read on...
