Media + Website Audit – Optimize your online presence
During the LACE Photo Media Website + Instagram Audit, we’ll select one participant and do a live digital review of their website and Instagram account. We’ll begin by reviewing their Instagram account and how they can implement best practices, improve their post engagement, increase following, analyze posts’ performance, and the tools they can utilize to do this. We’ll then hop over to their website to review their overall branding implementation, design, navigation, and give our top tips on how to improve these areas and optimize their online presence for increased sales conversions.
