Without a doubt, landing pages are an extremely important part of any marketing strategy.
After all, a landing page is a remarkably effective way to generate business leads and begin fostering that all-important relationship with your customers.

It’s the first quarter of 2018 and the skepticism surrounding social media’s effectiveness as a marketing tool has never been higher – save for when Facebook and Twitter were in their infancies.

way back in 2011. In case you’re curious about our fortune-telling prowess, read our
2016 and 2017 marketing prediction posts.
