5 Signs Your Website Needs an Upgrade

1. It’s not mobile responsive.

50% of all websites are now viewed on mobile. If you haven’t taken the time to enhance the mobile user experience on your site yet, it’s time to start paying attention. Mobile responsive means that a website will scale seamlessly on any device from desktop, to tablet, to smartphone.

Information is easily accessible and editable in one place as opposed to having a separate “mobile site.” Mobile sites were once popular but have now fallen out of vogue as more consumers favor the flexibility and ease of adopting a single site with a responsive design.

Internet traffic on mobile surpassed desktop traffic two years ago. Google also reports that compared to a year ago, people are 50% more likely to expect to purchase something immediately on their phone. If you haven’t had a site upgrade in a while, it’s possible your current website is not mobile responsive.

All Stratejus websites support responsive design to enhance the experience of visitors on smartphones and tablets, and provide tools that make it easy to update all web content using WordPress.

2. It’s slow to load.

A Google report published at the end of last year stated that fifty-three percent of people will leave a page if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load. If it takes too long for visitors to find information, especially on mobile devices, they will abandon your site and you will miss out on potential sales.

Try entering your website in this tool from Google to see if it passes the 3 second test.

3. The packaging is unattractive.

Take a look at your current website. Does your website design truly reflect the spirit and message of services you provide? If the answer to that was a resounding “NO,” then it might be time for a redesign.

A visually strong, thoughtful homepage design can make or break whether or not page visits turn into conversions. With a redesign, you can amplify user-experience by combining a thoughtful design with high-brow features such as rich animation, custom photography, and the finessed power of WordPress.

Stratejus offers customizable formats and custom web designs tailored to enhance the branding and design distinctives of each unique client.

4. It lacks modern solutions that consumers value.

Need to boost sales or highlight services? Stratejus offers a series of customizable web formats that can be custom-tailored to your specific requirements. Some of the modern solutions we provide include:

  • A mobile optimized calendar solution
  • User-friendly forms for easy sign-ups and
  • An alert bar to highlight updates and announcements
  • An responsive map with a customized color scheme, a way to find directions based on the user’s location
  • Image Galleries for displaying multiple photos

5. The content is out of date.

If you are using an out-of-date Content Management System (CMS), or perhaps even a flat HTML site, you might have a hard time managing content updates. If a user can’t find the relevant information they are looking for, it is likely they will end their browsing session. It is crucial that you keep important information on your website up-to-date.

Thanks to the user-friendly WordPress back-end, keeping content fresh and updated is never a problem. Stratejus provides a multitude of flexible content fields and unique layouts simplify the content management process for clients.
