The visual appearance of your website is a crucial aspect as it reflects on your business. Make sure that the user experience and user interface (UX/UI) of your website is easy to navigate, as a poor user experience can result in lost opportunities.
Having a clear method of communication is essential, but it’s important to note that less is more. Choose the communication method that works best for you, keeping in mind that email may not always be the most effective option.
