SMB Websites Drive Consumer Behavior, Support Search, Inform Strategies & More
Websites are the original digital marketing platform for small businesses (SMBs). But today their relevance is being questioned amid the dominance of Google and Facebook and a few others. This black and white, either-or thinking is flawed.
