Edge Advertising Group has developed and launched a client's website: https://stresslessforwomen.com/ . This website is an example of one size DOES NOT fit all. The sole proprietor of Stress Less for Women had content and images which presented well on a one-page site. While viewing the site, you will note traditional tabs take you to the relevant section, of the one page! For this type of digital need, a one-page website can save time and ultimately money.

It's a frustrating and stressful time for those working from home. Now school has started and as we know, most schools are only in session 2 days a week. The rest of the time it's up to parents and caregivers to help teach. It's hard to stay relaxed and have a clear head with work deadlines and keeping your kids on task at the same time!!

That's where "What The Fruit Cup" comes into play!!! ( If you haven't' seen the commercial, it is brilliant!) Leadership teams need to be more innovative than ever to come up with ways to keep their staff members happy, positive and motivated while working from home! So how do you do this? Golden Hello Company has lots of ideas for you.
