Sound Off: Internet Websites

Posted: Updated:

We are in the information age and unless you want to be left behind you have to have an effective website. Businesses learned very quickly that a website is a great way to connect with current and prospective customers.

Colleges use them to communicate with their students, alumni and to recruit. Churches have websites to minister to their congregations and reach out to potential members. Government websites should provide constituents with useful information and make a favorable impression on those businesses and families looking to relocate.

Last week we visited several government websites and found most of them helpful and up to date. The City of Jackson's website had out of date information and links to dead ends. Since our news story, Jackson's website has made some progress. The good news is that this is one problem that can easily be corrected. Remember, you only get one chance to make a good first impression.
