When was the last time you updated the look of your website? Do you remember the last time you added new content to it? Can you easily use your website on your smartphone?
Here are 3 signs you need a new website.
Your website doesn’t work well on mobile devices.
A whopping 48% of users will leave a web page if it doesn’t work well on their mobile device. This is a result of bad usability. Responsive design is a must have for any website now a days because of the usability aspect. The majority of users are going to be disappointed and frustrated if they can not easily use your website on their mobile devices.
The design is outdated.
Another key indicator that you need a new website is the design. If your website gives the impression that it’s outdated and stale, chances are your customers are going to get the same impression about your company. As a rule of thumb, a website’s design should be updated every 2-3 years as the web is ever-changing and so are web trends.
Your pages take forever to load.
40% of users will leave a web page if it takes more than 3 seconds to load. This is due to tight schedules and short attention spans. Not many people have the time to (or even want to) sit around and wait 5 minutes to view a web page. A quick loading website will ensure that your customers stick around and have a great experience with your website as well as your company.
As a business owner, you want your customers to have a good experience with your company and that starts from their first interaction with you and chances are, that first interaction is going to be through your website.
