A Little Something To Think About: Microsites

One of the great things about the open-source CMS solutions we work with here at Sanmita is that they’re so easy to use. With a minimal amount of training, anyone accustomed to using a computer for word processing or email can be shown how to update content on their website. And keeping content fresh and up to date is crucial for your users and SEO!

What You Need To Know About Landing Pages

Agway-Landing-FinalYou’ve probably heard the term thrown around here and there, but if you’re not a web wizard yourself, just exactly what is a landing page, anyway?

In a nutshell, a landing page is any page on your website where visitors can arrive, or land. More specifically, in marketing terms, a landing page is a web page created for a specific purpose, which isn’t integrated into the rest of your website.
