When your computer gets sluggish, starts misbehaving, freezing up, unable to do all of the things you need it to do … you reboot.
The same goes for life in general. Things get hectic, confusing, and chaotic, and sometimes you just have to stop.
Take a deep breath.
Make a new plan and start fresh.
In other words … reboot.
Your website is no different. Times change. Technology changes. Your business changes. Your website can change with it for a while, but eventually, the best thing you can do is stop. Take a deep breath. Reflect. Make a new plan and start fresh.
Doing a re-evaluation and reboot every few years can be just what you need to breath new energy into your enterprise. Is your website still telling your customers what you need them to know about your business, not just with its content, but also visually? Does it best represent where you are now, and where you want to be in the years to come?

How often should I look at a fresh web design and build?
Every 5 years at most. That doesn’t mean you have to change everything every 5 years, but a lot changes on the web over that period of time.
What’s the big change in the last 5 years?
In 2016, mobile browsing surpassed desktop browsing! People are browsing the web much more on their phones and tablets than on desktop or laptop computers.
Google started ranking websites that it deems “mobile friendly” higher than those that it doesn’t!
For years I offered a mobile version of sites as an add-on. For the past few years, however, I have been automatically building ALL new websites to be mobile responsive, meaning they look great on any sized device with no zooming or panning, and get Google’s big thumbs up. It’s a whole new way of designing and building websites.
How do I start?
Think about how your business/self/pursuits have changed since your website was built. Are you still writing the same kinds of books, catering to the same audience, focussing on the same things? Do you want to present yourself / your business differently than you did 5 years ago, say different things, put the spotlight on something new?
Then contact us! We can help you evaluate what needs to change and then make that magic happen!
