  1. The future is visual! I have to say, I really like Storyville’s the most. I love sites with a magazine-y feel to them. But anyway, you’re correct that the layout and appearance of your site is going to matter more and more in the next couple years.

    Your site is a visitor’s first impression of your business nowadays, so it’s important that it looks as breath-taking and awe-inspiring as possible. The deeper the impression the more likely a visitor will return.
