Adding Links or Hyperlinks to your website content makes it quick and easy for your visitors to access additional information — and helps boost your brand’s content marketing and SEO.
Sitebeat allows you to do this through its customisable Features — like the Heading, Text, Button, and Photo — that can instantly direct your visitors to a specific page or section in your website. It also opens a different website, opens or downloads a file, or even links them to a specific Email address or Phone number.
