There comes a time when a website will need to be remodeled. It can be a simple upgrade to incorporate new technology or it can be a complete remodeling that will be the equivalent to gutting a house before beginning the remodeling process.
How do you know that your website might be in need of a remodel? First you can start with a free website analysis like the one Karma Snack offers and look over the results of the analysis. Other signs that your website needs a remodel:
- Lack of visitors
- Visitors that leave the site quickly
- The website no longer supports goals of business
- Purpose of the website changes
- Outdated design
- New Branding
- Low or no rankings
- Difficult to navigate
- Poor lead conversion
- Unappealing appearance
- Business changes
- Negative input from website visitors
- New products/services not on website
- Damaged company image
The advantages of a website analysis is that not only will find out what doesn’t work on your website and get suggestions to remedy it, you will also find out what is working on your website so you can retain those components when the website is re-designed.
Remodeling your website may include not only general design changes, but also changes to accommodate changes in how you do business. With drop ship options more common now, many business no longer need to do the shipping themselves and online order forms need to be updated to reflect the changes. Images, photos, and videos can easily be incorporated into a website to give the visitor a clearer picture of your product or service. This eliminates some fear people have of online purchases or using a business for a service for the first time.
