Every lasting brand evolves in some capacity over years of business, so your website should evolve, too! No business wants a website design that's stuck in the past. Look out for these four signs proving your Milwaukee, Chicago, Racine, or Kenosha-based business website design needs a revamp!
1. Your website loads slowly.
This is a big uh-oh. Not only does Google de-rank website designs that have a slow load time, but worse than that - website visitors don't want to wait around for a slow site! Think of it this way: no one likes that friend who's late to everything. No one wants a slow website, either! To test your website speed, use Google Lighthouse. If you have a slow load time, contact our website design team here at Image Management to discuss your hosting or your website content!
2. Your website is hard to navigate.
Mazes can be fun when you're lounging on the beach with nothing to do. But on a website? No bueno! The key is this: almost every page on the website should be accessible from the home-page. This can include using a mega-menu, which our web design team here at Image Management has major experience in. Your website should have drop-down navigation from the top of your website with the more important pages closer to the 'Home' tab on the navigation bar. You can also add a search bar for website visitors to find anything at all!
3. Your website isn't ranked for SEO.
This, friends, ain't good - ain't good at all. If you're a lawyer, for example, how do you think people will find you? Google - hello! Your website's content should be sprinkled with Google-benefiting keywords, which is a leading factor in search engine optimization. If you cannot find your business on the first page of Google, contact Image Management to discuss an SEO plan for you! We'll make your website's SEO ship-shape!
4. Your website isn't mobile friendly.
Did you know over 50% of website visits are via phone or tablet? Instead of feeling bad for the poor, forgotten desktops no one's using, jump on the mobile bandwagon! Your website design, point blank, needs to be mobile friendly. It not only helps your SEO, but it's necessary for user satisfaction and experience. A responsive website design will scale the images, content, and overall website design to fit any device size. Contact Image Management to make your website design mobile-friendly and ready to please!
So, there you have it, folks...
