Let’s start with getting back to the basics with your website. There are a lot of tips out there on how to create an effective website. There are three consistent tips that just about everyone seems to agree with:
- Keep your website simple. Your website should be easy to navigate and should only contain relevant information. Avoid clutter with too many colors, fonts or graphics.

- Clearly state your policies and contact information. Customers should easily be able to communicate with you and should feel comfortable with every transaction.
