Technology’s lifespan can be related in dog years; 1 year equates to close to 7 years. Keeping this in mind, think about the Internet 7 years ago; no real mobile interface technology, no Facebook, no Twitter, no iPhones or iPads, CMS’s were complex and hard to use and websites were primarily static.

A lot has changed in a short period, has your website kept up?

Here are 5 tell tale signs that it’s time to upgrade, re-design or re-build your website.

  1. Your website is over 5 years old and has had little done to update it for new Web browsers.
  2. Your website is not utilizing social media.
  3. There is a great deal of animation done in Flash and your site’s graphics are outdated.
  4. There has not been any work done to capitalize on mobile platforms.
  5. SEO was not taken into account, during your last website re-design.

These are very common issues with both large and small organization websites. We all know our website is now the true face of our businesses but at times we tend to take for granite the amount of information that prospective clients gain from viewing our websites. In addition, it can be a very time consuming process to review and update your content but it is an absolute necessity in today’s business arena.
