  1. This is so true. I’m so happy to see this. I’ve believed all ten of these things for years, which is why I call myself a Professional Web Design Makeover Consultant. Looking as trustworthy and professional online as you are offline is extremely important. If your website looks unprofessional and amateurish, it harms your reputation and you’d be better off having no website at all.
