Generally, businesses want more traffic to their websites, more enquiries, more business, more sales, or just more awareness of their products and services. Digital marketing will help you achieve these. But the website plays a central role in all of this. No matter how good your digital marketing strategy is, it will never be enough if your website is not built to handle the traffic, and does not provide your visitors with a great experience that leads them through a journey. No amount of blogging, linkbuilding, advertising or social media will ever be enough if the website isn’t strong enough.

So, if you’re wondering whether your website needs a makeover, ask yourself these 10 simple questions:

1. Does your website work well on a mobile?
Let’s face it, the majority of us rely on our smartphones to do most of our browsing. This means your website doesn’t just have to be mobile-friendly, it should be mobile-first. Having the exact same design and layout on desktop as you do on mobile will lead to a poor experience on mobile, resulting in a high bounce rate. So, take a look at your site on your mobile. Do you have to zoom in to be able to read text and click on buttons? If so, it’s definitely time for a re-fresh.

2. Is your website filled with stock imagery?
Once upon a time, every website relied on stock imagery. But nowadays, there is no excuse to use stock imagery when we all have access to high quality cameras (even on our phones). A little bit of stock imagery is acceptable (i.e. for blog articles, for example), but as much as you can, try to include your own photography that showcases you, your team, your products, your personality. So, if your site is full of out-dated and cheesy stock photos of people in meetings, consider a re-fresh where you can showcase your company’s personality by using original imagery.

3. Was your last re-design more than three years ago?
A lot has changed in three years, particularly in how we browse and look for websites. It may not seem that long ago, but three years makes a huge difference in the digital world. If your website is more than three years old, you might not need a complete overhaul, but certainly a re-fresh.

4. Is there a clear call to action on every page?
A call to action could be anything from ‘get in touch’ to ‘add to basket’ to ‘sign up to newsletter’. Whatever your call to action, you should have one on each page. And that’s because it’s important that each page has a reason for being there. If your pages are just filled with images and text and no CTAs, consider a re-fresh.

5. Is it easy to contact you via your website?
Your users shouldn’t have to look too hard to find out how to contact you. Whether via a form, an address, an email address or a telephone number, you need to make it easy for people to get in touch – otherwise they simply won’t.
