All too often, people come to us having a built a website on their own or having hired someone else to build it for them. They’re often proud of their shiny new tool and eager to put it to use.

The problem is, the tool often isn’t ready for any kind of effective use. Things like semantic URLs, a blog, and SEO optimized plug-ins are completely absent. While these are things that are taken care of by us if you choose Strategy Lab, if you’re getting someone else to build your site or going it alone (a quest for which we commend you), we recommend listening closely to this valuable recommendation:

Basically, if you are inherently great at what you do and also take the advice this tool gives you very seriously, you’re likely going to have some success. Check it out.
