A word of advice: don’t think ‘I need a website’. Instead, think about a high performing marketing capability should look like and what you need to scale your businesses.
Indeed, your website will be part of a model comprising multiple strategies, tactics and channels. Data should tie it all together and allow you to be more effective with less resources.
So put a database at the heart of this framework. Because business is about people and the interactions you have with them, and a database is a much more efficient way to manage these then your inbox.
Set the foundation now, right at the start of your venture. It will be harder to do so when you’re bigger.
