It’s hard to believe there was a time before the World Wide Web. But here we are, roughly a quarter of a century after its invention, and who can remember a day when we couldn’t just “Google it”?
Not surprisingly, a lot of things have changed since the world was first introduced to the vast “web” of information we now rely on every day. One of the biggest changes has to do with how businesses promote themselves to attract and engage potential...
So you’ve created the best Montessori website you’ve ever seen, if you do say so yourself.
Your content is as enlightening as it is captivating, your design the epitome of elegance and your navigational capabilities are off the charts. You’ve created a rich experience for all your visitors, present and future . . .
Except for the ones who won’t get to see it when your website goes down.
Not only will your current clientele be unable to access information they need, but...
