website. On the other hand, it is equally very important to undergo system overhaul every so often, if
you want to increase your influence within your niche.

In order for a website to work for a company's advantage, it has to be upgraded and not left to stand the
same for years. To do that, you need to invest attention and effort into it. A business website needs to
be user-friendly and visually attractive in order to entice visitors. It's not all about marketing and
promotions. You also have to make sure that you put focus on the website's aesthetics and function. It
will be impossible for a company to attain its business goals if you do not give time to focus on this.

Many trends come out every year. Dynamic, fresh, and innovative solutions are offered to amke website
look good and easier to use.

The consequence of not upgrading your website

•       The website becomes visually unappealing

•       It is outmoded

•       Difficult to navigate

•       It becomes very slow

•       It doesn't bring in the desired volume of traffic

•       It doesn’t gain new customers

•       You have to shut it down sooner

You do not want to say goodbye to your website sooner than expected. The only solution that would
prevent these things from happening is by upgrading your website. Another good reason why you have
to upgrade business website periodically is that search engines have the tendency to maintain the high
rankings of your pages.

Redesigning your website

Ask yourself this: How do I use my website to achieve my business goals? Most of the time, you make
changes on your website in order to coincide with the changes you have done for your company. It is
also important that when you decide to design your website you have to choose if you'd want a content-
managed site or a brochure ware.

The system of a content-managed site calls for frequent content update. While brochure ware translates
the company in a more straightforward manner, minus the frequent updates and complicated
technologies.

How often do you have to upgrade is not very clear, but if you do not want to appear outdated, you
need to upgrade in as often as four years. In case your company has undergone s significant change,
then you should immediately have that reflected to your website. There might also be design trends
that you find suitable for your business, thus, you may want to give your website a revamp.

Things to keep in mind when upgrading your site

•       Make sure that your website reveals your business' credibility.

•       Make sure that your visitors can easily understand what your company stands for.

•       Post testimonials from your loyal clients. This adds customer trust.

•       Show off your awards, list of clients, and your professional affiliations.

•       Posting your physical address to your website will tell potential customers that you are
legitimate business.

•       Supply clear and relevant information that your customers will find easily.

•       Supply answers to frequently asked questions.

•       Information should be customer-focused.

•       Place all relevant information in easy to find places.

The internet world is such a competitive place for businesses. Most of the time, changes simply occur
with or without you being aware of it. Technologies evolve very fast and new strategies and techniques
just sprout out of newer ideas. The competition between business websites in trying to catch the
customers' attentions is getting tougher. Upgrading your systems and websites is the solution if you
want to stand out from the rest.
