What are the signs that it is time for a website change?

signs to change your website

Change might not be everyone’s favourite thing, but unfortunately it is inevitable with business. Change is usually a sign that something is going right in business, that you are ready to evolve, to grow and to change. 

However, when change comes around; no matter how positive it may be, it can often mean that there is work to be done. 

Redesigning your website is not something that you may want to do as a business. Not only does it take time, but it also costs you money too; and spending out money is never appealing. This may mean that as a business, you put off upgrading, updating or redesigning your website, even when you really need to.

But, how do you know that it is time to make a change and redesign your business website? To help to make sure that you know that the time is right, we have put together some of the main signs that it is time for a website change. 

You feel that your customers are getting bored

As a business there is a good chance that you want to see some repeat business; however, the thing about customers is that they can all too easily get bored and want to move on. If you notice that your repeat customer numbers are starting to dwindle, then maybe it is about time that you made some changes to your website and give them something new and fresh to look at?

Your conversion rate is low

A conversion is when a website visitor becomes a customer, becomes a lead, becomes a sale. In order to have a good conversion rate you need to make sure that you inspire those who have just clicked on your website to take it one step further and buy from you or perhaps get in touch to learn more about what you can offer them. In order to do this, you need to have a website that makes them want to know more.

You have changed your marketing goals

Marketing is a pretty fluid part of business, which means that if you want to make the most of promoting yourself to your audience then some things have to give. If you want to change where your business is going to end up, or perhaps how you get there, then you are going to need to change your marketing goals. This also means that you are going to need to change your website, the content and how it looks too. 

Your website isn’t working as it should

In order to make sure that you maximise the sales that your website see’s, you are going to need to have a website that works as it should. Content should be displayed, videos should play, links need to work when they are clicked on; and above everything else, your website should be swift and smooth too. 

If your website needs to change, then you may want to make sure that you find a professional who is going to be able to help you to make the most of your website and ensure that it works the best that it can.
