What Every Business Should Watch for Before Getting Online

Posted on by Toresa Leave a comment

A few years back I wrote a post about a friend who was totally duped by their web designer. I’ve always been a big believer in having control of your online business and practice it religiously with my own clients, but many business that are new to the online world tend to put all of their trust in their designer because they don’t understand the process, maybe feel they don’t have time to learn it or better yet, don’t care to know the details.
