Which platform is right for your website?

A website requires an investment up front, so it is important to choose a platform that will meet the needs of your business.

So this time, instead of changing 2018 to 2019, update your footer to the snippet below, and you’ll never have to update it again!

I know you’re busy. You’re running your business. You’re grinding, working hard, and you do NOT have time to build a website. Maybe you’ve tried. You signed up for Wix, Weebly, or Squarespace. They’re do-it-yourself, and that’s your style, but you quickly got overwhelmed, or ended up with a website that you did not love.
