10 signs you need a new website


You have a website. Welcome to the Internet! How happy are you really with it?

Customers’ preferences are changing rapidly and new technologies are taking the internet by storm. While your online presence is important, it is equally important to keep up with new technologies. How can you stand out among the millions of websites on the internet? And, most importantly, reach and attract the right people?

Elegant Codes knows that a website is not only about looking good, but also needs to work well and help you achieve your business goals. We are here to help you.

Here are 10 signs that you may need a new website if you feel unsure.

1. Your website is not responsive

This list isn’t ranked in order of importance but if your website isn’t responsive, it is a good reason to consider a new design. Responsive web design will ensure that your website renders properly on different devices. It also means that every screen is rendered with a unique user experience, regardless of whether it’s a desktop, tablet, or mobile phone.

Most importantly, recent data shows that mobile surfing is now more popular than desktop browsing. More than 60% of internet users surf the web from their smartphones. You can’t afford to lose customers because your website isn’t responsive. Are you able to do this?

2. Loading can take forever

This research shows that 47% of users expect pages to load within 2 seconds. A further 40% of users will abandon websites that take more than three seconds to load. It is clear that your website must load quickly in order to retain visitors. It’s time to find a new website if your site takes too long to load. Elegant Codes makes it a top priority to speed up your website. This is one among other the key performance indicators (KPI).

Your site may be slow. Your site is most likely losing customers and causing harm to the Google algorithm result. We all know that Google is the king.

3. Your bounce rate is extremely high

Let’s start by explaining what bounce rate is and why you should care. A session is a page that has been viewed only once by GoogleIt is a problem? If your site’s success depends on visitors viewing multiple pages, then a high bounce rate is bad.

Your bounce rate could be high for many reasons, including a confusing user experience, poor design, or unreadable content. A fresh redesign of your website could help you with all those issues. Magic!

4. It does not align with your branding

Are you a recent rebranding client and your website does not reflect it? It’s really a simple matter. A new one is needed.

Digital communication is the primary method of communication for most businesses. Your website should always be consistent with your business brand. This could send a confusing message and that is not good for your customers.

5. It doesn’t look right.

Your website is the most important thing. Is it something you are proud of? Are you proud of it? No? No?

It’s not surprising that according Adobe 66% of viewers would rather see something beautiful than something simple and uninteresting. Research shows that 68% of viewers prefer to view content with appealing layouts and good photography. Wow.

6. Navigation and site map can be confusing

It’s called bad User Experience (UX), and it is something we often see: complicated site navigation, inaccessible and hidden content, insufficient call to action, unclear section hierarchy, and a lack of clear call to actions. This sounds familiar? Then you need to start thinking about a redesign. Your website will be more intuitive and easier to navigate with seamless information flow. This will help you make a profit quickly.

7. You cannot update your content.

It’s hard to imagine anything more frustrating than this – being unable to update your website without having to spend a fortune on IT is simply not possible. It’s worth looking at a new website that has a content management system.

Elegant Codes ensures that every website we create has a simple backend. You can also get free training so you can be a WordPress wizard in no time.

8. You are way behind your industry

It can help you to stay ahead of your competition by maintaining your brand image across all channels. We all agree that your website is an important part of your business. It should be up-to-date and current with the latest trends.

9. Google doesn’t rank you well

SEO is a mysterious term that you must have heard about. Search Engine Optimization is often about small changes to your website. Google explains. Although these changes may seem small, when taken together, Search Engine Optimization can have a significant impact on the user experience of your website.

It is true that many of the factors mentioned above will impact how your website ranks in Google. This can be fixed with a new website. Elegant Codes technical SEO is our number one priority.
