The Significance of Brand Alignment for B2B Enterprise Websites.
Enterprise startups often describe themselves as best-in-class and thought leaders, but their websites give off a startup vibe.
For instance, if you're urging customers to secure their corporate network with your cybersecurity platform or rely on your AI-based software for data analysis, your company needs to exude trustworthiness. If customers perceive you as a "startup," they may focus on your company's background instead of asking the right questions about your products and services.

Three Key Website Errors:
