In website years, 1 calendar year = 5 Internet years
How Google ranks websites and how your site interacts with social media has changed dramatically in the past 2 years alone. If your website was built prior to 2012, there’s a good chance visitors can recognize the aging design. An outdated website can cost you customers and revenue.
Your website is often the first thing your potential customers see about you and can form a lasting impression that influences the way they perceive your business.
- An old looking website can give the impression that your business is old and tired. Will visitors to your website think your business is responsive and energized?
- Your website affects whether locals or visitors to the area find you when searching for businesses. Is your website optimized to rank well in search engine results?
- One extra second of time loading up your website can result in people leaving your website. Does your site load fast?
- More and more people are searching for businesses and/or shopping from their mobile phones. Is your website mobile-friendly?
If you’ve answered “No” to any of these questions, it may be time to consider a new or updated website. A new site designed by REACH Maine Marketing will integrate social media, increase site speed and improve mobile accessibility.
