WHY DO YOU USE A SCREENSHOT OF THE HOME PAGE OF EACH WEBSITE AS THE MAIN IMAGE TO REPRESENT EACH BUSINESS?
We try to use a screenshot as this is what your customers will see when they land on your website. Rather than use a logo or one image a screenshot gives a great overall picture of what each business is about and sells.
