Every marketing pro and modern business owner knows the importance of a solid online presence. In today’s digital world, the first impressions you make on potential clients will more often be through the internet rather than in person. Putting your best face forward online is essential to the success of your business.
Unfortunately, many businesses don’t properly invest in making their website the best it can be. Here’s a list of five common mistakes that may be driving down your sales.
