1. Your website is loosing ranking position and web traffic if it is not mobile friendly or responsive!
With mobile phone web usage out-weighing desk top web usage, if you have an older non responsive, non mobile friendly website you are loosing both customer and web visitors. If people are looking for your Business, Product or Service via their phones and they can not see or reach what they need via your website they will switch to another website. In addition Google penalises non responsive or non mobile friendly websites thus impacting the fall in web traffic and new customers still further.
A simply way to solve this problem is to create a new mobile friendly website or to convert you historical website in to a new mobile friendly website.
2. You have become hostage to your web developers, having to constantly pay for any minor or major update to your website and then also having to wait for it to happen.
With older html coded and flash websites you are constantly waiting and paying for web developers to update content and pages on your website and this can be costly and frustrating. Often relationships can fall down and you can feel like a hostage to your web developer.
Having a new website that is built on a platform that comes with a Content Management System (CMS) can solve all of these problems for you, and as long as you can use “Microsoft Word” then you should be able to manage the content on your website.
3. Your old 5 page static website just doesn’t cut the mustard any more!
For a long time now most businesses have had a four or five page static website that allows potential customers to see what you do and how to get in touch. These website perform a certain function allowing people to find out more about you but do not really bringing you a return on the investment and not really engaging with the website visitors.
