MGI Tipster Volume 1, Issue 13

Do you know…maintaining a top-notch website is crucial to the ongoing success of your organization’s marketing efforts?


More and more, it is imperative to understand your industry’s online landscape and to find ways to distance your organization from those competing against you online.

To keep your site running at peak performance, you should:

  1. Map Your Online Landscape
  2. Conduct Regular Audits and Analysis
  3. Review Data and Develop Recommendations

Website’s give an impression of quality and set expectations at the onset of most business relationships. As marketers, we must ensure this initial interaction provides a solid foundation instead of letting the first step happen on shaky ground.

Striking the balance between dedicated technical, content, and creative elements will increase your ability to fulfill your target users’ interests. This establishes solid relationships from the onset helping build your membership, increase your revenue, and develop longer-term retention of existing members.
