Modern Clients Expect Modern Websites
Old, outdated, and neglected websites will be ignored and essentially push clients away rather than bring them in. Your website needs to scream at visitors exactly what you do, how you do it and be presented in a modern design that encapsulates your branding.
Google says that we have a matter of seconds to capture a consumers 'click' before they hit the dreaded back button and move away from your website. To do this you need to capture their attention straight away with modern call to actions on the site using videos, animations, graphics or just plain old well presented text in modern fonts. Your website needs to both show off what you do as well as encourage visitors to click on through your website.
There is no point investing hundreds and possibly thousands in to PPC or SEO experts if the site itself is not fit for purpose.
The importance of having a Mobile Friendly website
Nowadays, nearly everyone has a smartphone. In fact, according to Google's own data, more Google searches take place on mobile devices than on computers in more than 10 countries.
Because Google want to improve the User Experience (UX) of sites found on their search engine, Google have changed the way they rank websites and now penalise those that aren't Mobile Friendly. If your site is not Mobile Friendly, Google are already:
- Warning users against visiting your website
- Ranking your site lower for mobile searches

Professional Logo used
Have you had your logo designed or is it just plain text? Paying to have a unique logo created with your colours and possibly even company slogan is worth its weight in gold when it comes to brand power and recognition.
All products and services displayed
Your website is more than likely designed to promote your business online, so do you actually mention everything you do? Use your homepage to tell visitors everything you do and provide them with links on how to find out more.
Company Blog up to date
Blogging is great for keeping your content on your website relevant but it is also a great indicator for when a website has been left to rot. Blogs are a weekly thing, not yearly and need to be used wisely to show visitors how up to date your website is.
Social Media used
Social Media now has a direct affect on your Google rankings and the more likes and followers you can attract the higher your rankings. Use Social Media to engage with clients directly and show off how modern your design truly is as what modern site doesn't have Facebook and Twitter?
