At present, the design for the website is minimalistic. There is a strong opportunity to reform the online presence to have a more current, aesthetic design which could further increase its already large consumer base. Expanding its advertising initiatives both in-print and online would help grow its client base further. Securing contracts with additional commercial clients could be achieved by manually approaching such companies. As the business owner is willing to stay on for a transitional period, the new owner would be given a complete overview of operations.
