Have a look at the websites of your competitors
It is always helpful to keep an eye on what your competitors are up to. And that includes what they are up to online. Checking out their website is an easy way to see what they are doing and what their priorities are. You can also get an idea of the style of their websites as well, which can provide some ideas if you need inspiration. However, it is important to not just copy what your competitors are doing and expect the same results. It is always better to be an original, although it is ok to keep an eye out on the competition.
