Small Business Websites
Your website is the most important tool to market any business. The website your business launches is most likely the only piece of real estate on the Internet you have complete control over. Yes, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter and other digital marketing platforms are important, but if you solely rely on the platforms you are building your brand on rented land. What do we mean by rented land? Think for a moment, what happens to your brand and all your efforts should Facebook or Instagram cease to exist. Where does that leave you?
Your company website should demonstrate the points uncovered in your digital marketing strategy. What makes you the obvious choice, what problems do you solve for your audience and who you are. A website should be a natural extension of your brand on the web. When your site is a natural extension of your brand you are setting your audience up for an authentic congruent experience.

Publish your content wherever you determine your online audience frequents, but make sure all content brings visitors back to your website.
At first this will seem counterintuitive, but trust that you are on the right road to position your business as game changing to your audience.
