How do you know if you need a new website? What are the signs of an old, outdated site? And how do I go about getting a new site? If you have been pondering any of these questions, then you will probably want to stick around for this 5-minute read, where we will answer all your questions!
Do I Need a New Website?
Firstly, if you think that your website looks outdated, then others will probably be thinking the same. The visual component of a site is hugely important because you want to encourage potential customers to stay on your site, to read about your business and to buy your products or services. Websites should be user-friendly above all else. Make it clear to your visitors how to navigate your site and lead them easily to information you want them to see. They don’t want to work for it.
Slow sites are also a big red flag. Online users tend to be quite lazy and so if you’re website is taking forever to load, the chances are they will not stick with it. After all, it’s not just about getting people to visit your site, you actually want them to stay on it for a considerable amount of time as well!
If your current website has not been optimized to be mobile-friendly, then this is another issue. 59% (Statista November 2022) of people browse the internet on their mobiles, so if your site is not designed to cater to them, you’re missing out.
What are the Advantages of Having a New Website?
So, if you have a new website design, then the useability is likely to increase, which will increase user experience. Users are more likely to stay longer on your website and purchase your projects and services.
Your website also helps to build a trusting relationship between you and users, who are more likely to trust the legitimacy of a well-built website. Finally, a strong website adds a positive contribution to your SEO rankings, that is, how well your website ranks in the search engine results.
