National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM)

National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) is an annual observance held in August to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages. NIAM was established to encourage people of all ages to make sure they are up to date on the vaccines recommended for them. Communities have continued to use the month each year to raise awareness about the important role vaccines play in preventing serious, sometimes deadly, diseases.

Make Your Website Work For You

No matter how attractive your company website may be, its main purpose is to engage prospects, serve customers and build your business.

Here are a couple tips for crafting a successful website:

1. Make your site easy to navigate. If your customers want to look for specific information, make that simple. Pretend you are a new user, or better yet, have a friend try out your site to make sure visitors can easily find what they want and need.

2.Incorporate a "Call to Action" on every page. Your "call to action" could be as simple as a "click through" to a relevant resource or meaningful content, a phone number or directions on how to place an order.
