One thing is clear: no company can get by today without an online presence. This also applies to small and medium-sized enterprises. If you want to present yourself on the Internet, you need more than social media marketing. With your own website, you ensure an individual presentation independent of the major networks such as Facebook, YouTube, and Xing. A company website is much more than your business card or your figurehead on the web. It is the prerequisite for reaching your target group with strategic content marketing. There are several steps to consider before implementing a website.
