Update your website, and then do it again


As the owner of an award-winning, full-service digital marketing agency focused on website design, among other services, I know firsthand that having an eye-catching website is the most important part of maintaining a strong digital presence.

Updating your website is crucial and is something most businesses and brands forget about. Not sure when it’s time for an update? There are five telltale signs to look out for:

1. Poor conversion rate (amount of visitors to a website who actually interact with the page).

2. Cluttered design.

3. Bad user experience.

4. Unclear messaging.

5. Not mobile friendly.

Telecommuting attractive in competitive job market

Man working from home

Job seekers are enticed by work-from-home options according to research from staffing firm Robert Half. More than three quarters of surveyed professionals (77 percent) said they are more likely to accept a job offer if there is an option for telecommuting. Those in San Francisco and Los Angeles are most likely to seek this perk, citing long commute times.

Companies that promote these options are more likely to attract top candidates. However, there are drawbacks to telecommuting, including people abusing the benefit, feeling isolated and missing a team environment, and strained relationships due to lack of face time.
