Times such as the COVID-19 may be a great time to redesign / revamp your website.
Questions you must ask yourself before revamping
- Is my website mobile friendly? Is it responsive?
- Does it look better than my competitors?
- Are visitors complementing my website?
- Does my website look modern?
- Am I experiencing growth with my current website?
If your answer to the above questions is ‘no’, then you’re in desperate need of a website revamp.
Even if your website can be technically sound and working, it might be outdated, with traditional UI and UX.
If you are uncertain about investing in a website redesign, we have compiled a list of reasons you need to revamp your website right now.
1. Jaw dropping user experience
User experience (UX) is the most important aspect of your website. A flawed website can be a source of irritability and not be a place of information and engagement for the users. At the same time, if your competitor has a better website with more attention-grabbing and impressive UX, then you can say good-bye to your customers.
Tough navigation, slow loading time, bad mobile-optimisation or unfriendly mobile loading time and outdated content are some of the bad UX practices. You should seriously look forward to revamping your website if it has any of the above mentioned issues.

When you don’t update your website regularly, you compromise your Search Engine Result Position (SERP) which is a determining factor for your ranking in Google searches. With an estimated 65% of total searched being done in Google, a lower ranking can seriously jeopardize your growth and sales.
A website redesign instantly improves your Google visibility and gives you an ultra edge over your competitors.

In other words, the display of the website should adjust based on the pixel width of the website upon which it’s being viewed.
Needless to say, one of the most important factors to revamp your website is to progressively make it compatible with mobile devices. Your website must be easily navigable on mobile phones, tablets, and other devices.

You clients may be facing many problems, some of which can be:
