1. Modern Website Design

The look, feel and experience of you website is viewed as a direct representation of your business as a whole. Your website was designed over 5 years ago, design trends have changed and your website now looks and functions in a dated way. It is important to present your business with confidence, trust and professionalism through the look feel and experience of your website.

2. Mobile Responsive Design

“On an average, 8 out of 10 consumers would stop engaging with a website if its content doesn’t display properly on their device. (Source: Adobe)

Today, everyone has smartphones and tablets, and they are constantly communicating and looking for information through these devices. Your website was built at the beginning of the smartphone and tablet revolution. Your website is not currently responsive and you are now at a point where not having a responsive website will significantly effect your business’s presence online.

Responsive design means that your website will display appropriately and effectively on all devices – smartphone, tablet and desktop. Your website will “respond” to the device and screen size that it is being viewed in.

The importance of responsive design is most apparent and necessary on mobile devices. As you can see with the following “non responsive design” example, this version of a website is difficult to view and use on a mobile device. The content and navigation are both very small and unreadable. When people are using a mobile device they often want, and expect, to be able to access information quickly and easily.

4. Improved SEO Ranking

“Having a mobile-friendly website has become a critical part of having an online presence. Mobile is critical to your business and will continue to be so.” – Google

Google is now penalising websites that are not mobile friendly or that have slow load speeds. Google considers these aspects so important, that it will now make your website less visible in the search engine results because of it. Upgrading your website is an important step in any improvement to your search engine rankings and having your website more visible to your potential customers.
