When you look at an agency’s site, what do you look for? We recently redesigned our website at MojoTech, and we spent a lot of time looking at other agency sites to help us think about how to move forward with ours. This exercise made something painfully clear: most agency websites aren’t particularly helpful to potential clients. They’re built with the agency in mind, rather than the client.
