website development

If your website is more than two years old chances are that you need a new website. You may not be aware of all that has happened in the website development industry in the last two years.

A new breed of website development technologies has been released and websites built today with these new technologies are faster, smarter and beautifully designed. These new technologies have allowed website owners to take control of key features and functionality that they never had in the past.

The main advantage of using these new technologies is that your website’s shelf life is extended by 5-10 years because of the scalability of these new technologies. Today a static website only has a shelf life of about 2 years and cannot leverage any features unless you pay a programmer to develop those specific features. Below are a few things you should consider when assessing your current website and why you might need to build a new website.

1. You are ashamed of giving out your website address:

This is one of the main reasons you should revamp your website, If you no longer feel comfortable sharing your website address with potential customers because you are embarrassed or ashamed of how your website looks, it’s time for a new website.

2. Your website is not generating any leads for you:

If your website doesn’t generate leads but you do see you’re getting traffic but most of that traffic is bouncing and not resulting in a lead, it’s time for a new website.

3. Your website doesn’t display correctly on all web browsers and mobile devices:

If your website doesn’t look or behave the same in all web browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.) and mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.) it’s time for a new website.

4. Your website has too much copy for your users to read:

If you have too much copy on your website but not enough well-designed images and a web 2.0 graphical structure, it’s time for a new website.

5. Your business has a new name and/or brand:

If you have changed your business name and/or brand recently, it’s time for a new website.

6. Your website can’t be found on any of the major search engines:

If your website is nowhere to be found on any of the major search engines, it’s time for a new website.

7. You would like your website to have features and functionality you currently do not have:

If you need any specific features and/or functionality like social media plugins, a shopping cart or a blog, it’s time for a new website.

8. Your website looks outdated:

If your website looks outdated and no longer appeals to your target audience, it’s time for a new website.

9. Your website’s navigational structure doesn’t make sense or no longer applies to your current business goals: 

If your website’s navigation is no longer in line with your business goals and/or it’s very difficult to access all of your key content, it’s time for a new website.

10. Your website is not working for you as a 24/7 ambassador:

If your website is not generating leads and making money for you by day and while you sleep at night, it’s time for a new website.
