“ Ask your customers what they want.”Is constant adaptation always the best policy?Do your customers really want you to change?Will change alienate your base?Will you confuse people?What is the cost?Will the change make you vulnerable? The bottom line: "Your customers will dictate when and how much to change. Keep asking them what they want (we recommend a formal or informal audit every six months) and keep watching their behavior, since they aren’t always able to articulate their desires. Then change as they do, or just a little bit faster."

Granted, there is a lot to know, but that doesn't mean you should take a hands-off approach to your company's success. A good online marketing partner will teach you about the fundamentals, so you know what you're paying for and can do as much or as little as you want to your website.
