Website Review

As technology evolves and design trends change, it’s a great idea to reevaluate your existing website. A website review answers those nagging questions in the back of your mind about whether your site is performing well for your business.

Why pay for a review? Many business owners are short on time to dedicate to a full website redesign project. A review will point out areas that will provide the most return on your investment. You may find that adjusting a few small items makes a world of difference and you don’t need a new site. Additionally, having a trusted third-party take a fresh look at your business online will highlight areas for growth.

What the Review covers

Is my website user-friendly?

Beautiful websites are not effective if they are too hard to use. Your target audience must find the information they need easily and intuitively.

Is my site search engine friendly?

Most businesses are looking for new clients and most of your clients are using a search engine. Make sure your site can be found!

Does my website look good?

Your site is often the first impression a customer has of your business. Is it an extension of your brand?

Is my site secure?

Security is non-negotiable. Google ranks sites that are secure and trusted, regardless of if you collect money through the site or not. 

Does my site communicate well?

The content (text and photos) on your site should help your potential customers understand why they need to work with you. 

How can I improve my website?

Many sites can make small adjustments and see great improvement in traffic and increased leads.

We provide an objective, insightful view of your website and how it can reach it’s full potential for your business.
