Having a website is great! It allows you to market to your client 24-7. But what if it doesn’t work properly, or clients can’t find the information they need?
Here are 5 Sign it Might be Time for a Redesign:
Your website is slow.
A slow website can really discourage visitors from spending time on your website. A lot of people still use older technology, or slower internet service, not to mention many people use their cell phone to surf. A slow-loading website can be very frustrating.
Parts of your website are broken.
Technology changes quickly, and sometimes those changes don’t work too well with old websites. If you notice that things aren’t looking quite the same as they did when your site was new. It might be time to bring things into the present.
The information is outdated.
In the past, it was difficult to update and maintain your website. Just changing your store hours, or menu required a call to your web designer. Not anymore, most small changes can be made by yourself. If you are having difficulty keeping your information up to date, it might be time for a new design.
There’s no mobile component.
More people are relying on their cell phone to surf the internet than ever before. You might consider getting separate web-ready design, or a responsive design to connect with your mobile customers. This can be especially important if most of your customers are on-the-go (Think: Fast food, tourist attractions, hotels…).
Your clients can’t find the information they are looking for.
If your website is disorganized, it can be a real struggle to find information. Just think back to the times you were looking for a restaurant’s menu, a stores hours, or a map of where to find your hotel. If it wasn’t easy to find you gave up, right?
