Spring Cleaning – Your Website!
It’s almost spring, and of course with spring, our thoughts naturally turn to: Spring Cleaning!
I’m sure that we can all relate to this experience; we build our website, put lots of time and energy into it, and finally it is up and looking great, right? Well, too many of us just leave it that way, and never make any changes. Think of it this way; you get a new office. You put the best furnishings you can afford in the reception area for clients to see, you get plants, etc., and it looks great. Let’s say 6 months go by and you never dust, clean, or water plants, what do you think it looks like now? Not great, and it would not make a good impression. Of course, you do not do that, you clean, water etc. as needed. The same practice should apply to your website.
So, for our spring cleaning project, take an objective look at your website. Is any information out of date? Have you added new features/services/products that are not reflected on your website? Are your blog posts old? Look at your images, are they sharp and clear. Do you have new ones that are better? Perhaps they need to be re-positioned on the web page. Is there lots of space around text? Are text comments short and clear?
Consider applying a background to the home page for dramatic effect. If you already have a background, consider changing it.

Remember, you have 4 seconds or less to keep you visitor on your website. If they don’t see something that attracts them, or something that clearly identifies what product/services you are providing, they are gone.
Now is the time to clean up, dust off and re-present your website!
