2020’s been one heck of a year – that we can all agree on. In fact, if 2020 was a packet of crisps, it would be this:
But, alas, we’ve had to adapt and make changes to our lives which we would have never imagined a few months ago. One thing that hasn’t changed? The need for a great website!
This need wasn’t only exclusive to this year, however, especially after COVID hit, a properly optimised website has become a must. We often get asked: “How should I know when I need a new website?”
Here’s what to look out for:
An outdated website is usually easy to spot:
Mobile website traffic now makes up over 50% of web visits around the world. If your site isn’t already mobile optimised, now’s the time to get moving!
If so, chances are your site isn’t meant for mobile devices.
Unless your internet connection is slow, your site shouldn’t take longer than 3 seconds to load.
In case it takes longer to load on a user’s phone or computer, this will cause a poor user experience and may even increase your bounce rate. Both of which are harmful to your SEO!
“What do you mean I can’t edit content on my own website?!?”
Having to rely on a web developer to make edits each time you’d like to edit content isn’t ideal and is likely, unnecessarily costing you money.
Through a CMS (Content Management System), you’re able to be more independent and make these changes yourself. Did I mention Uwejja offers CMS’s for free with each new website created??
While there are plenty of other ways to identify a website in need of a facelift, the above covers a few of the most common cases.
