When Is the Right Time to Upgrade Your Website?

Matt Jackson 13 June, 2024

You’ve crossed “get a website” off your to-do list, but it’s easy to treat it as a one-and-done task. Think about your business assets such as company vehicles, equipment, products, and machinery—they all have lifespans, and you regularly evaluate their performance to decide if upgrades are needed. Your website is no different!

As technology advances, user behaviours shift, your brand evolves, and design trends modernise, your website needs to keep pace. But how do you stay on top of it all?

Treat your website as a key business asset by scheduling in a regular performance review. A good time for this is around the end or beginning of the financial year when you’re already reviewing other business aspects.

Key Questions for Your Website Review

Ask yourself these three critical questions during your review:

  1. Does your website still match your brand?
  2. Is your website helping you meet your goals?
  3. Is your site providing a positive user experience?

If you’ve answered any of these with some uncertainty, it’s worth exploring further how it can be improved. Here are some clear signs that an upgrade is needed.

Signs It’s Time for an Upgrade

  1. Outdated Design and Technology
    • Web design trends and technology evolve quickly. What was modern and sleek two years ago might now look outdated. Regular updates help keep your site looking fresh and functioning smoothly.
  2. Brand Evolution
    • As your business grows, your brand identity might change. If your website doesn’t reflect who you are now, it’s time for an update.
  3. User Experience Issues
    • Users expect fast, intuitive, and mobile-friendly websites. If your site isn’t meeting these expectations, it’s likely costing you visitors and potential customers.

How Often Should You Upgrade Your Website?

While there’s no strict rule, a good benchmark is to consider a website upgrade every 2-3 years. This keeps you on top of technological advancements, design trends, and changing user expectations. However, if you’re experiencing significant issues, don’t wait—address them immediately.
