What makes Cultivate Different? Website Review & Consultation

Many digital marketing companies are competing for your business. If you receive the same type of sales emails that we do, there are offers and promises to improve websites in various ways. These offers range from boosting the ranking and improving the SEO to possessing secret insight into Google’s next move. These companies may be able to help, but the reality is that they are selling a service.

That is the difference between the Website Review & Consultation we offer. Cultivate is a nonprofit that provides expertise and advice to small businesses in various areas like digital marketing. We are not selling a service but will give you an honest assessment of your current website and advice about improving it.

If website improvements are needed, we can provide referrals. We have professional partners who align with our methodology and can help you achieve the desired results. Or you can take this insight to your current provider.

Whether you are considering a new website, want to improve your existing site or want to see how your website stacks up against your competitors, this assessment is an essential next step and a valuable investment.
