In the last few years, studies have revealed that the Internet has surpassed newspapers and yellow pages when it comes to information and research about companies, products, and services. Many of our clients are dropping their yellow page ads, in favor of improving their websites. Your website is where people go first to decide if they want to do business with you. In fact, your website may greet more customers than any of your employees!
It’s time to take a look at your website and evaluate how well it represents your business, online. The same way as you wouldn’t do business with someone that does not present themselves professionally, be assured that having a website that does not represent your business in a professional manner will cause you to lose potential clientele.
