Has It Been 3 Years? You Might Need a New Custom Website Design

July 15


Has it been three more than years since you upgraded your website? Seriously, take a minute to think about it. 

A few years ago, we would have asked if it’s been 5 years since there’s been an upgrade to a new website. But, with the improving and fast-paced technology, over 300 annual search algorithm updates, and user attention spans diminishing by the day, your site needs to be up to par.

5 Important Reason to Update Your Company Website

There are other reasons to update your website on a regular basis, but the five we listed are some of the most important.

Brand Consistency

Your website is one of the most important pieces of marketing collateral you have. It’s often the first impression potential customers have of your brand. A stale or outdated web design can communicate to customers that your company is behind the times – or worse, that you’ve gone out of business.

Be sure to update logos, color schemes, images, and content – written and video.

Having a great mobile experience

In the first quarter of 2021, mobile devices generated almost 55 percent of global website traffic. And this number will continue to increase year over year. So, if your website isn’t mobile-friendly or optimized for mobile users, you’re already behind the curve. You may as well not have a website at all.

Of course we’re being sarcastic. But in reality if you’re looking to compete in any industry your users and potential clientele expect your website to be user-friendly and provide them the data they need on the go.

Luckily for your all self-service website services have responsive websites. And, your preferred web design agency will certainly ensure your updated website development is mobile responsive.

Your Website Speed Needs to be faster than ever

People’s attention spans and patience is extremely short. So make sure your website loads in less than 5 seconds to be safe but less than 3 seconds to excel with online search and conversions.

This specific evaluation is part of your search engine marketing. So things like optimized image sizes, sitemap submissions, and leveraging browser caching can make a significant difference in your website speed.

Update content to solves the user’s intent. In other words, great SEO 

A website that isn’t updated regularly can quickly fall behind in search engine ranking. This is especially true if your website isn’t mobile-friendly. Google now penalizes websites that are not mobile-friendly with a lower search engine ranking.

So, if you haven’t upgraded your website content in a while or performed a search engine optimization audit you don’t know if your website is even working for you.

We encourage that your review your search engine rankings, competitor activity, and website visits at least every 6 months. If any of these metrics have changed drastically, then it is time for a website update.

88% of online consumers are less likely to return to a site after a bad experience.

We’ve also seen the emergence and growth of self service website options that have not only been adopted by individuals but small businesses to large corporations alike.
