The world of digital marketing is always in flux and can be a bit overwhelming for a busy business owner to stay on top of. While I'd always felt my business had a decent online profile I really wasn't sure where we stood in the overall scheme of things so I was very interested to take advantage of this program... I would highly recommend that every business owner take advantage of this program, especially if you don't have much of an online presence or if you're unsure of how strong your digital footprint is. These days our online marketing strategy is the most important tool we have and this program can really help boost it for us.
