1. Your website is chaotic and and disorganized
Having your website visually organized and clean is a great appeal for visitors. When they see too many words, small photos, and too many conflicting colors, it causes potential clients to leave and click off of your website.
Why is this?
A chaotic and cluttered website shows that your business is messy and disorderly. People don’t want to have to filter through tons of content, links, sidebars, menus, pop ups, subscribe buttons, etc. This is visually distracting. Visitors prefer simple websites that have tasteful color schemes, and a clear layout which helps them contact your business easily.
2. You are having trouble with the functionality of your website
Websites are much more complex than most people would assume. For every website on the internet, there are thousands of lines of code which are all co-creating the website as you know it. Websites have technical problems all the time. Even if the owner of a website thinks that their website is working perfectly, there is still a possibility that users are having problems. Cymax Media can help detect any problems with your website and work to fix them for you.
3. Your business has evolved
As your company develops and evolves, it is important that your website changes to match the updated version of your company. This can be done by syncing color pallets, logos, products, targeted audience and the overall atmosphere of your company.
If you want to redesign the total feel of your company, this is a great time to upgrade the branding of your business. It is also a great opportunity to consider a new and better mission for your business.
4. Is it mobile friendly?
Even in this time when most people use smartphones, it’s surprising how many people still have websites that aren’t mobile friendly. Businesses that don’t have a mobile friendly site have the majority of their users bounce off of your website to view a competitor of yours who DOES have a mobile friendly site. Most of people searching the web are using smartphones.
What exactly does it mean to be mobile-friendly?
Mobile-friendly websites are defined by two factors:
The website loads quickly. This is important because people don’t want to wait for a long time for your website to load or to respond.
Your website’s design is responsive. Google has a test to determine if your website is mobile friendly. If not, your website will not be favored in search ranking results.
5. Is your website design out of date?
When it comes to cars, architecture, clothes or interior home design, the fashions are always coming and going. There is no exception when it comes to website design.
Drop shadow used to be a common part of design. Now, words with drop shadows just look out of date. Flat design has become much more popular and if you’re still following old trends, it’s time for an upgrade. When your web design looks current and up to date, it shows that your business is at the lead of your market and presents your business in a more professional manner.
For those who are unsure of how to portray their design, it is always best to focus on delivering compelling content and the design should follow naturally. The design of a website supports the purpose portraying who you are and your services. Design should not be the primary face of your business, but assist in the mission of your business.
6. Have you decided it’s time for a fresh start?
