Keeping your customers happy is so important when there are other suppliers they could choose from.

After exploring your email addresses in part one and business telecoms systems in part two of these guides, in the third article, we turn our attention to website services, more specifically companies offering free website builders. The majority of us have seen an advertisement for companies offering people a ‘simple’ way to get their business online for next to nothing and in no time at all. In principle, these companies look like a god-send, but when you start to delve deeper into them, you can see why genuine website designers and developers are not worried in the slightest. Here, we will explore why free website builders offer a false sense of value for money.
Following on from part one, where we discussed business email addresses, in part two we discover why choosing the right business telecoms system is crucial, and why using your mobile for business calls could be causing irreparable damage to your reputation.

We can safely assume from this that having the first failure has taught these people lessons that they benefitted from the second time around.
