  4. Use Links: My biggest pet peeve is when an individual or a company sends me information about an event they’re having but doesn’t provide a link for more information.  If you have a link, people will click it.
  5. Remember: NO ONE wants to visit an empty website. That’s like going to the grocery store full of empty shelves.
