In relation to our businesses, we can also be vessels to provide the needs that people are so desperately searching for. We can allow solutions to challenges, problems, needs or wants.
Our websites should include other people's passions, as well as our own! Content should be written with heart and sensability. When someone lands on your page, make them feel welcome and provide a "shiny penny" that will draw their attention in a concerned way. Send them to CTA (call to action) pages, which will allow them to make a bold decision in their best interest.
Be a vessel to your audience. Be someone that will have a lasting impression. Be kind and sincere...
BE A VESSEL.
