With its user-friendly interface, customizable features, and more than 55,000 plugins, it’s no wonder WordPress is the most popular Content Management System (CMS) available.
WordPress is open-source, which means it’s core files are available to the public at no charge. While many businesses and news organizations build their online presence using WordPress, it’s also the CMS of choice for many individuals and bloggers with limited or no web development experience.

Unlike their counterparts, many hardware retailers benefitted from the increased focus on the home living space throughout 2020 and 2021.

At Mountain Mojo Group we provide a brand kit with every logo project we do. Whether it’s a logo refresh or a new logo, you’ll receive a brand kit to go along with it! What is a brand kit you ask?

In the 70’s we saw weird symbols and random color combinations. Negative space dominated the 80’s and a focus on strong brand recognition and bright colors lit up the 90’s. Logo design trends in 2020 focused on minimalism and simplicity due to the greater than ever placement in the digital space. If there’s one thing we can count on with design it’s that logo design trends will change regularly and consistently. Brands must stay on top of the trends or get left behind.
Just having a web presence for your business is a start but it is not enough. A poorly designed website is a major turn-off for potential customers. If your website is cluttered, the text is hard to read, call to action buttons do not work, there is no clear messaging, or navigation is impossible to follow, all this leads to a poor user experience and your website is doing more harm than good.
What can an effective website do for your business? The question is really more properly phrased as, what can’t it do!?

Of course an effective website can serve multiple purposes, but really we want to think about the main goal of your website because that dictates the user experience and design we want to create. With this in mind, here are our tips on how to build an effective website!
