    Hi Sandy,

    Well I would have to agree with you on all points here.

    I don’t visit a lot of company sites these days because I find them boring if you must know the truth. I will purchase products though from places like Amazon, ones I’m familiar with. Now if more company sites had blogs I’d be interested in hearing what they have to say so I agree that more definitely need them in order to help their customers.

    The rest of these ingredients are important too. Social media depends on the company and where their clients are. I know they might not all be on Twitter but you might find a bunch on Facebook. Learned that the hard way.

    Great tips Sandy and thanks for laying it out so well.
