Websites – Do you need a new website?
A website is your home. It should look fabulous and make people welcome.
Because I manage social media I like my clients to have the best website as social media oftentimes takes them to their website. A website is a property that you OWN.
How can you gauge your social media efforts without having your website set up properly and with Google Analytics?
Social media sites are like rented property!
Fabulous real estate websites. I’ve worked with Drew from Luxury and they offer a great package for realtors.
