Time for a makeover, maybe
If you have a website that was designed more than 7 years ago and you have just been adding to it and making changes here and there, you may need to do more.
The expectation of people has changed and they now expect a simpler look with large images and the site has to work on cell phones, tablets and computers. If your web site is small, cluttered with lots of flashing or bright boxes with small images, then you are definitely needing a complete remake of your website with a more up to date look and feel. Sometimes you have to redo something rather than fix what you have.
I don’t build websites
I’m not telling you this because I sell websites. I don’t. But, I have been reading a lot about it and I am in the process of updating my own photography website. Getting unbiased input about my progress is a challenge. Some people are just too kind to say anything negative at all and others just will not do it.
I do learn as much as I can for my clients
I am subscribed to some blogs that talk about website designs and trends because I want to be on the leading edge for my advertising clients. I want to know what works best in all areas of advertising, not just REACH Magazine.
Would you like a 3rd party unbiased review of your business website?
If you would like a uninvolved third-party unbiased review of your web site, I will do that for you. Send me a link to your site in an email. I will look at your site. Give you my first impressions and tell you about ease of navigations and my overall feelings about your company based on what I see.
Sometimes it’s difficult to get objective reviews from people within your company (who wants to criticize something the boss worked on) or from the company that is creating the website. Again, I am not a web designer and I am not looking to redesign your website for you. I will not tell you how to fix the problems I see and the impressions I get from looking at your website. That will be up to you. And, of course, if you don’t like what I say, you can always ignore the ideas and suggestions completely.
As I am getting feedback from various people regarding the makeover of my photography website, some are very insightful and I have made changes as a result of their comments, others are too kind and provide nothing helpful, and others say things that I will just have to ignore or consider later. But, so far, the information that I have received from outside 3rd party individuals has been smack on helpful.
So, I volunteer. firstname.lastname@example.org Send me a link and mention you would like an unbiased website review.
