Not only is 2020 a new year but it’s also a new decade. So if you haven’t done a website revamp in the last few years, now is the time!
Many website owners believe that a website revamp every 5 years is more than sufficient to keep their customers happy. But we’re here to tell you that it isn’t. If you’re not updating your website regularly, it’s probably stagnant and no one will find it on the world wide web. That being said, it’s never too late to start doing the right thing. So, here is some key information you need to know about revamping your website in the coming year.
HIRE A PROFESSIONAL WEB DEVELOPER FOR YOUR WEBSITE REVAMP
Sure, you know someone who knows someone who knows something about web design. All we can say is DON’T DO IT! Your website revamp will take forever and you might not get professional results.
Instead, hire a professional web developer. Aside from keeping up with current trends, your website will be live in weeks, perhaps even days.
THERE’S MORE TO YOUR WEBSITE THAN JUST LOOKS
There are so many things that go on behind the scenes when it comes to web development. You’ll want potential customers to actually find you right? A professional will know how to do proper SEO to ensure search engines list your site.
YOUR WEBSITE SHOULD BE UNCOMPLICATED AND RESPONSIVE
There’s nothing worse than a complicated navigation system on a website. You lose a user within a matter of seconds if they can’t find what they’re looking for right away.
As for responsiveness, mobile technology is the future. Nearly half of all internet searches are performed on mobile phones. Don’t risk losing customers because your website isn’t mobile-friendly.
