Outdated or “Under Construction” Website is Bad News

Outdated

We know that antiques and re-purposing is hot these days but nothing says, “joke” like a website that doesn’t work on a  mobile device properly or that has a design like that well, just looks bad.

There’s a high chance that if your website is outdated, it isn’t mobile friendly. If your site doesn’t work well on a mobile screen people are going to leave frustrated, without making a purchase (or finding out more about you) & you won’t reach mobile visitors either. On top of that, Google doesn’t showcase non-mobile friendly sites at the top of the search results!

Outdated websites also come laced with wrong phone numbers, hidden email addresses, broken contact forms and confusing navigation — all red flags, especially to a prospective customer that you may have poor customer service.

Under Construction

Okay, let’s think about this.  If you come upon a road that is “under construction” do you want to continue on it or would you prefer to take another route.  Let’s be honest, a website is always changing but if you’ve had the “under construction” on your site for the last 6 months you really need to get serious and find some help.

Benefits of updating your website?
– You will turn away less visitors.
– You will turn more of them into paying customers.
– You will reach customers on every device.
– You will direct more customers to call or visit your store.
A website is one of the most effective & valuable forms of marketing available, so you want to be sure it’s working at its best or that you have it in the first place.

Why to not “Create a free website”?

Okay, we are not trying to insult anyone here but we seriously want to be totally honest with you.  So here it goes!

Why to not “Create a free website”?

1) Search engines wont’ like your site as much. Search engines will also not take you quite as seriously.

2) Lack of credibility I mean nothing makes you look less serious about your business than something at the bottom that says your business is on a “Free” website.

3) Nothing is for FREE! No one will give you anything free without expecting some returns, immediately or later.  In this case they make marketing dollars off you.

Well, maybe that wasn’t too bad.  Still, it just is not a good idea to do the “free website” gig for a real business.  Get serious about your website.
