A Website acts as a backbone for every type of digital communication, product/service description, advertisement and other means of  driving the consumer to your business.

An easy to navigate, clear and user-friendly website with updated content  is a necessity for any business, big or small. As your customers search online, a website is a perfect place  for your content to live and to guide your customers to your offerings, as well as offer e-commerce where relevant. Through search engine optimization (SEO), you can also develop means of having your website secure a more prominent place when customer prospects conduct website searches using relevant keywords.

To simplify long-term maintenance and manage costs, our center recommends engaging with website platforms that offer a drop and drag user interface. Some of the user-friendly platforms are: WIX, SquareSpace, Constant Contact Website Builder and Weblium.
