I was recently talking with a friend what technology was like when we were kids. I remember my parents bringing home our first-ever home computer. It was monumental. We set it up, plugged it in, and started up our super fast dial-up internet. We thought we were cutting edge.
Since then, technology and the internet have surpassed what I could ever have imagined.
With today's technology, we can practically do everything from our phones. We can order food online, watch our favorite Netflix shows, and even FaceTime with family across the country. Technology enables us to work and have access to everything on the go.
But even with the ease of technology, we still neglect important things. One area we tend to ignore is our websites. It's easy to set it up and forget about it, but your website is one of your greatest tools. It's working for you 24/7, and it has potential to reach people you might never connect with.
So why are our websites the last things we give attention to?
Here at FiveJ, we have chosen to build and develop websites using Squarespace, not only for the exceptional design features they offer, but also for the innovations they're continually striving for.
Squarespace has created apps that let you manage, update, and post content directly from your phone. The apps are available on Google Play and iTunes, and they provide you with on-the-go resources that help your website thrive.
