This varies based on industry and your target audience. As a rule of thumb, Nerx Digital Agency recommends a website re-design or “facelift” every two years. If your website was well built from the beginning, you won’t have much to worry about except minor adjustments to ensure your brand, team, services, or products and relevant information is accurately reflected. It’s also always a good idea to run period performance checks to make sure your load speed is up to par and that your site, overall, is working smoothly
Some companies — especially ones that are just starting out — find the lower-investment associated with a website template appealing. Templates, however, are very limiting and businesses seeking to scale, or looking for changes down the line, might find themselves stuck. Custom websites perform better because they’re crafted specifically around your business objectives. Better marketing results ensue with a website built around your goals and needs.
Yes, a freelancer will charge less money than a full-service agency, but often, an independent contractor’s capabilities are limited and the final product will suffer as a result. Worst, the website may very well end up costing you more in the long-run. Our expert team comprises website designers, coders, project managers, testers, copywriters and marketers because that’s what high-performance projects require. A professional website design firm will have the talent, experience and manpower needed to design a modern website according to industry best practices. A professional firm will customize your website’s functionality and build it for SEO and to perform highly specialized tasks. All of these components are required for your website to deliver increased and traffic and in turn, meaningful financial benefits.
First on your “to-do list” is to clearly define your project objectives. This means mapping out your primary business goals. It’s also important to how your web designer’s process works. Have the agency walk you through that process, step by step. Lastly, work together with your web design team on identifying the resources they need from you to start your project (i.e., high-resolution images, logos, written copy, etc.)
We always recommend regularly assessing your site performance and making important adjustments as needed. As technology improves, so, too, must your website performance. So whether it’s through tweaking SEO, enhancing your UX, or adding new, third-party integrations, be sure you are working with a team that will take care of your site not just in the near, but also in the long-term.
