5 Reasons You Should Update Your Website In 2020

Blog business website

 

There’s nothing quite as simple and cost-effective to promote your business than being on the Web. But just having a website is not enough - it needs to be the right website. Your website needs to tell your story, present your services clearly and it actually has to be found first! Here are five reasons why you should consider giving your website a redesign this year.

 

1. People do judge a book by its cover

 

First impressions matter. No matter what your trade is, your customers will form an opinion about you based on how you present yourself. Your website needs to make an impression and stand out from the competition. If your website presents your business in a professional manner, that impression will be extended to your services.

 

2. No time to waste

 

How long would you wait for a website to load before you give up and go elsewhere? Ten seconds? Twenty seconds? Most of us won't wait for three. Your website needs to be built for speed and simplicity. If your customers can’t find what they’re looking for and find it fast, they will certainly have other places to go.

 

3.The future is vertical

 

There are 4.57 billion internet users in the world today, and 92% of them use mobile devices to go online. Having a responsive website design means your visitors will always have your website perfectly scaled for whatever device they’re using, making browsing and buying a breeze.

 

4. Your website works for you 24/7

 

While every employee needs to sleep, your website promotes your business night and day. 53% of shoppers do research before they buy to ensure they are making the best possible choice. By ensuring your website’s search engine optimization (SEO) is up to speed, you’ll perform better in web searches and drive higher and better-quality traffic to your website.

 

5. It pays to be safe

 

Having an outdated platform or theme is not just an eyesore - it’s potentially dangerous for your business. Having your website built using up-to-date platforms and technologies protects you from threats and keeps your data safe. It also comes with the benefit of easy updating and posting.
