As a business owner or manager, there are countless decisions to be made and multiple options to weigh when it comes to investing time, effort, and money.
If you already have a website, consider:
When was the last time it was updated?
How well is it performing?
Where is your web traffic coming from?
Is your website safe and secure?
Most importantly consider if you have a new product, service, or brand you want to launch successfully and have been contemplating if it is time to update your website and online presence. Today’s customers purchase out of interest, intrinsic value, and scarcity, yet above - trust.
A website that is regularly updated with the latest design trends and security measures builds trust at the start as a business that is active and current. Updating the content on your website and refining the wording when you alternate seasonal marketing campaigns (perhaps speaking to a marketing business if you aren’t capitalizing on this yet) where everything is refined to better speak to, reach, and highlight a specifically targeted demographic (theme, era, color, mood, models, music, etc.) that will help stand out as a hip business growing in quality and reputation, versus one that is too broke to be current or in fashion.
