One good question to ask yourself is if your website still looks as good as it did a few years ago. If it does not, it’s probably a good idea to revamp it. if it is still good, here are some reasons why you should still consider a makeover for your site.
You acquire a new–and sexier–domain.
This is one good enough reason. What better way to announce a new line of products than getting a new domain name. Sometimes, it can make all the difference.
Your current site can only host so many pages.
Content management systems and websites are actually two different things. Static websites do not allow you to add content easily and they look like brochures. Content management systems were made with almost unlimited capacity for all types of content; podcasts, videos and text. You should also know that SEO prefers sites with more pages than the ones with a few.
Your current site appears long in the tooth.
A design that was nice in 2007 may not necessarily look good today. The Internet has changed so much from even two years ago, it would be wrong to assume that web design has remained the same. Images and visuals are the thing now. Look at Pinterest and you will see how it has a great impact on design.
Your current site isn’t
A very important point to note is that more and more people now own smart phones and people rely on their phones much more than they do on their desktops. If your site is not mobile friendly, it’s time you changed that.
The performance of your current site is suffering.
The performance of your site may be suffering due to many reasons: unnecessary plug-ins, too much flash that slows down your site, all of which you might not even need.
All websites get old as time goes by, look at your competitor’s site and judge your site – does it need some tweaking?
