Do you need a new website

Three Reasons You Need a New Website (VIDEO)

In this video, I talk directly to people considering a new website and cover the three main reasons you might need one.

There are lots of reasons why you might need a new website…

  1. Style – some websites look and feel a bit 1990s. Maybe you’re ashamed to give out your business card?
  1. Performance – perhaps your website doesn’t load in about 3 seconds? Perhaps it doesn’t load so well on mobile? All of this affects your SEO rankings.
  1. Usability – maybe it’s not easy to add and edit content?

We have one client that every time they wanted to change a bit of text on the page, they would have to email their head office in Germany, so changes could take one to two weeks.

These are all great reasons why you might need a new website so consider building SEO best practices right from the start, and hire us to help you build a website.

The typical range of cost is $1,000 to $10,000.
