[W]hen trying to decide whether or not to redo your website, here are a couple of questions that may clear up your decision-making process. Why redesign your website?
Is My Website Mobile Responsive?
Gone are the days when you are designing a static website for PCs. Websites are now searched and studied on mobile devices, iPads, tablets, and other handheld devices. They have to render and look good on these devices as well as PCs and laptops. Remember, “Mobile internet usage surpasses desktop usages for the first time in history.”
Why Redesign Your Website? – Does My Website Engage the Visitor?
In Steve Kung’s book “Don’t Make Me Think Revisited” (affilate link), he states you have about 8 seconds from which to engage and hook in a new visitor. Your site has to be interesting, fresh, engaging, and appealing to the future and returning visitor.
In this digital and fast-paced world, we live in, text alone with great content will not cut it. You need rotators, vivid images, bullet points and great headers. The jist of the post much be recognizable within seconds to keep the user on your site.
Does My Website Pop?
Invite a friend who is not in your industry to look over your website and tell you the first item that catches their attention? Was it what you expected? What elements do future clients walk away with? What is the call-to-action? In short, does your website pop? Does it grab the attention of your potential audience? If not, it may be time for the website redesign.
Does My Website Look Exciting and Appealing?
In short, websites need facelifts every two to three years. Like a brand new car you drive off the lot, its value begins to go down almost as soon as it is created. Marketing your business and putting the best foot forward online requires you to have an exciting, appealing and up-to-date website. Is your website exciting?
