The Grand Finale
November 26, 2012
After all is said and done, what do we know for sure? First, we know that it's rare, if not unheard of, for a business owner to say that their website isn't important to their business.

If these methods of marketing are not utilized, continue to expect that 75% of your visitors will only see your site once.

We can see where the trend lines are pointing, but often individual businesses have no way to compare themselves to their peer group. That's about to change.

RJM recently sent out our first survey to current clients in order to pick their brains and gauge their perceptions of digital media—specifically websites. We wanted to know everything there is to know about how they see their website: what they use them for, how often they update their content, how often they update the graphics/layout, how long they think building a website should take, and so on.
