Would it ever occur to you to update your website? I mean, it should. A website is a reflection of your company, your brand and yourself. Why shouldn’t you take care of it?
This is how many people will view your business and what they see will impact their first impression of your business. Why not make that as best of an impression as possible with a website rebuild?
Minor changes should be made relatively frequently to keep the content fresh and relevant. Who wants to read testimonials from three years ago when your site was built?
This cannot be a total redesign, of course, and can occasionally cause problems with your website. The best thing to do would be to refresh your website every couple of years to keep it current and relevant.
Why is it important?
Well, a website is all about sending the customer/client a message. Why they should choose you and how your company can help. This being said, many different messages can be sent by what you have done to your website, the images you use, and the content. It does not take much for something to look outdated and irrelevant.
First impressions are formed almost instantly, so you need to get it right quickly to encourage the audience to take your website and thus you seriously.
If your website is outdated, it can lead to technical issues, and no one wants to deal with that. Technical issues such as broken links, downed websites etc., have a significant impact on user experience.
The harder a website is to use, the less likely it is that customers will happily use the site. In fact, they would be more likely to get off the site as fast as possible. It also has a bad impression on customers as they could think that you simply do not care about your website and thus your business.
They may question the value and quality of any products or services that you offer because of the poor quality of your website.
