Websites are rich sources of information about corporate entities and are helpful in verifying the legitimacy of a business. Thanks to common web design practices, there are very frequently a minimum set of pages on a company's corporate website, each of which may contain a wealth of data:
- Home: Provides information like business overview, services provided, product features, nature of business, and client lists.
- Contact: Provide information like phone numbers, addresses, office locations, and hours of operation.
- Products or Services: Provide specifics on goods or services offered.
- Terms of Service: Provide details such as entity names, addresses, and critical legal considerations. These are critical to consider when a business is entering into agreements with its customers and partners at scale.
In sum, reviewing this minimum set of pages can help build a deeper picture of the business entity and help establish the credibility of associated businesses.
