Many landing pages have a distinct objective to sell a product or service and may not have any global navigation to tie it to your primary website. The main reason for this is to limit the options available to your visitors, helping to guide them toward your intended conversion goal.

All our sites us the latest standards to allow your site to look the same on nearly every computer/device.
