Your “cover” is what everyone sees before any experience with your company. While your customer service may be excellent or your products are of great quality, if your design doesn’t send that same message, you’re losing potential customers.

Take for instance your eNewsletter; if it looks like the newsletter your high school sent out, it’s probably time for an update. It’s important to stay relevant and on your customer’s minds, but if your message isn’t wrapped in a pretty package, it’s going to get half the acknowledgement.
