5 Common Signs that you need to Re-Design your Website

Do you ever walk into a store and think WOW! This place hasn’t changed in years”? It leaves you with a feeling that perhaps the business hasn’t kept up with the times, which can be a huge red flag for shoppers. Now, think about your website. Would it spark the same concern in your visitors and scare them away before they become paying customers? Even if someone isn’t tech-savvy, they know an outdated site when they see it.

We’ve compiled a list of the 5 most common signs that your website needs to be redesigned. If your site fits any of this criteria, it’s time to upgrade because you could be losing customers!

Web Design - Norfolk Web Designers - Update My Website - Surf Your Name - Local Web Designer When was the last time that you redesigned your website? We’re not talking about updating the content, but changing the whole look and feel of the entire site. In the digital world, trends come and go pretty quickly, and as web designers… we’re on top of all of those changes. So, if it’s been longer than 18 months, your website is probably a little outdated. People get accustomed to seeing newer types of sites, and if yours hasn’t kept up, you’re probably losing clients to companies with a more appealing website design. It shows that you’re not trying to keep up with the times. Plus, with an outdated website… you may also be losing search engine rank and position (more on that later).

Web Designer Near Me - Local Web Designer - Virginia Web Designer - Norfolk VA Web DesignOlder websites are notoriously tough to use because their navigation isn’t intuitive and doesn’t translate across multiple devices. A site that’s difficult to use isn’t going to encourage people to stick around, and the faster your visitors leave… the less likely they are to spend money with your company. Instead, they’ll go somewhere else to find what they need. At Surf Your Name, we offer free website performance reviews, so we’ll be able to tell you if your navigation is confusing to your visitors and we’ll devise a plan to increase the functionality and user-friendliness of your website.

Need My Website Updated - Update My Website - Local Website Designer - Virginia Beach VA - Virginia Web DesignHey, we’re all guilty of having incredibly short attention spans, which is the reason we’re so quick to leave a site with a long loading time. Ten seconds is just too long to wait in this day and age so if it takes more than a few seconds for your pages to load, there’s a serious problem. Your website may not need a total face-lift, but something is definitely wrong — and it’s holding your business back and frustrate your customers. Our web development experts can determine why your website isn’t loading as quickly as it should, then we’ll work with you to fix it!

Every time you look at your website, you wish that you could change it. It’s that nagging thing constantly in the back of your head. You know that it doesn’t represent your business and the reputation you’ve worked so hard to upkeep. No to mention, you find yourself apologizing and making excuses to potential customers about the look and outdated navigation. You should be proud to send customers to your website. If you’re embarrassed instead, it’s time for a change.

Mobile Friendly Web Design - Local Mobile Friendly Web Designer - Responsive Web Designer - Norfolk VASearch Engine Optimization (SEO) is the name of the game in todays world. If your website isn’t ranking on the first page of Google, you’re not getting the kind of traffic necessary to run a successful business. Not to mention, search engines really don’t favor websites that are outdated or rarely upkept. If you’re not getting any kind of SEO movement from your website, you can’t remain competitive in your industry and you’re losing clients to better performing websites. We have talented SEO experts on staff who can increase your standing with Google and other search engines.

 

Does any of this sound familiar? If so, it is definitely time to revamp your website. You owe it to yourself, your business, and your customers to have a beautiful, modern website. Your website should be a hub of accurate and well-organized information and its number one job is to convert your visitors into paying customers. At Surf Your Name, web design and development is our passion. We offer FREE website performance reviews so that you’ll know exactly what needs to be done to increase your site’s impact.

I have used SurfYourName several times for tech support.  When I got my new laptop they setup all of my emails and got me up and running.  I recently had a virus issue and they were able to "kill" the virus and get my computer back up and running.  I don't know what I would have done without them!  They return my calls and are always so helpful.  Would recommend them to any of my friends or colleagues!

I bought a new printer for my home and could not get it to work to save my life.  I tried for over an hour to get it to print and NOTHING!  My son, who is more tech savvy, tried and couldn't get it to work either.  I called Erik with Surf Your Name and he was able to remote connect to my laptop and had my new printer working in 30 minutes.  I didn't have to leave the house or talk with someone from an overseas call center.  It was worth every penny to get my printer working!  Thanks Erik and Surf Your Name!

I have been working with SurfYourName for about 2 years now. I had a website that was basically junk since it wasn't doing anything for my business. Not to mention I paid allot of money for it 2 years ago! I worked with Erik and got a brand new website and it has paid for itself over and over in the past 2 years. I call him about once a month and they make changes to the site for me with specials I run. My laptop got a virus about 6 months ago and they were able to kill it and get my laptop working again without me leaving my office! I always tell them how luck I am to have them, but I figured leaving a review would let more people know about them and send some business their way. It has been 2 years now and I have had several other people try and get my website business and I just laugh at them. I have already found the best and don't need anyone else. I feel like Erik and his team actually care about my business and that not something you find anymore. Thanks again to Erik and SurfYourName...you guys are the best and have a VERY VERY VERY happy client!
