Website Upgrade and Signage Projects from Architectural Signs

A website upgrade or redesign can be a game-changer for your business, but it can also take significant resources in time and money, so it's not a decision to be made lightly.

The average lifespan of a well-designed website is 3 to 7 years, but time alone shouldn't be the main reason for a redesign.

That decision should depend less on trends and more on whether your audience is effectively engaging with your site.

Key Reasons for a Website Upgrade: You want your website to be a state-of-the-art representation of your brand and values.

Having an updated website sends a message: Your company is healthy, forward-thinking, and ready to take on new customers.

Good companies evolve and grow over the years and your website is the best way to showcase who you are. If you use modern website design elements to tell your story, you're more likely to engage your audience and leave a strong impression e.g. you can add, lifestyle imagery, case studies, industries served, and value-based messaging.

You want to stay competitive in your market

Different industries support different website lifecycles. A consumer website needs to incorporate the latest design trends in order to keep its brand fresh and connect with early adopters. A more technical, manufacturing, or information-sharing site can often take a wait-and-see approach to new trends and focus on other redesign factors.

Check out the websites of your key competitors and compare them to your own site. If you're considered a leader in your industry yet your site is the last to upgrade, it might be time to redesign.

You want to make your website easier to use and navigate

Look at your website through a user's lens: A website has about four seconds to make an impression before users hit the back button, meaning your navigation must be well-organized and your content must be easy to understand with clear calls to action.

  • Can you quickly sum up your core services?
  • Can you find the information you're looking for?
  • Can you easily tell where you are on the site and see where you want to go next?
  • When you're on a service or product page, is there a clear call to action call to take you to the next step?
  • Can you easily use your site from a tablet or smartphone?

If you find yourself getting lost on your site and it takes you more than a few seconds to find the information you're looking for, a redesign is probably in order.

Mobile-friendliness is now a requirement, so if your website is older, it might not be offering a good experience for mobile users.

You're launching a new service or product

Sometimes a new product or service doesn't fit cleanly into your existing website structure or can't be showcased appropriately.

Redeveloping gives you a chance to reprioritize what your website focuses on and create a site designed around your current sales goals.

You need to reinvigorate your marketing efforts

Your marketing strategy should be full of digital tools: search engine optimization (SEO), conversion-focused pages, content marketing, social media, compelling visuals, etc. Does your existing website have the technology or customizability to enable you to flex your marketing muscles? In order to serve as an effective foundation for your digital marketing plan (and make your job easier), your website should have:

  • Blog and news templates for content marketing
  • Social media integration
  • SEO-friendly URL structures and tools for keyword optimization
You need to add new technology and functionality

Looking to add e-commerce, robust case studies, or a custom quoting engine? Investing in these tools often makes more sense on updated technology.

Adding a bolt-on tool to an outdated website is often less effective and costs more than creating a new website with the functionality built in.

While these reasons can serve as a guideline as you consider whether your website is ready for a redesign, every company is unique, and there may be other factors that influence your decision.
