1. It’s unmemorable and doesn’t stand out

Check websites of your competitors to gauge whether your website is standing out. Is your website looking very much like the others within your area? Be competitive by keeping your content new and your website design fresh, modern and easy to use! This makes you trust worthy as a brand and this could easily convert those website users into clients.

2. It doesn’t reflect your brand

Your website is a powerful marketing tool. It is one of the most important brand touchpoint that you have as a business.

3. You’re not getting the right clients

This should go as far as the colors, typography, gallery style that you use on your website. Keeping a consistent look and feel on your website will help point you to the right clients. Consistency is key!

4. Your website is slow

This affects your website users’ experience. Always check your website if load times are fast. One thing to always consider is the internet speed of users, not everyone are using a reliable internet connection. Choose only the best of your work, you do not need all of your previous clients gallery on your website. Do not forget to optimize your images for website use. Keeping plugins and themes updated also help in website speed as well as security, so if your website was done 2 or more years before – chances are you are running an old version of the technology used on your website.
