Is your website pulling its weight? As the hub of your online marketing, your website is the most important component of your web presence. The primary goal of your inbound marketing activities should be lead generation – driving more traffic to your website and then converting the traffic into leads.

By searching for your business as if you were a potential client looking to buy a product or service, you will experience the first impression others experience when they click on one of your links.

It’s no surprise that customers and visitors to your website have questions about your business, product or service that need to be answered. And we try to answer those questions through our blog posts and page content. But often the visitor needs a simpler way to find the answer they are looking for.
