5 Minute Marketing Tip: Check and Review your website

Your website is an important part of your marketing tools within your business. More than just an online business card, your website gives your customers a chance to research you and further cement the “Know, Like and Trust” feelings for your business. It makes sense then that your website is not a set and forget item, and needs to be updated and checked in on regularly.  There is nothing worse than landing on a website that has broken links or is out of date.
