When in Rome, we used to do as the Romans do. Today, the old adage is given a technological twist. When in Rome in 2019, take as many Instagrammable photos as you can.
While we’re in this new world analogy, take a look at web designers. They are the ones who build online estates in the online world. If you think about it, availing web design services is like getting an engineer or an architect to design your home or your place of business online.

Being less than committed to this investment is just incompetence.
