There is no question that people need great content online in order to gain new customers, members, or clients. It's the way many people, especially Millennials (one of the largest consumer demographic groups), now make their decisions.

People head to the internet without a second thought to look for a coffee shop, hair salon, car insurance, reviews on vacations, and what products to buy or services to use.

So why isn't your online presence top notch?!
