If you don’t periodically redesign your website, then you run the risk of both losing potential clients over time and appearing less professional and trustworthy to your Web visitors. Time moves quickly on the Web, and your potential clients’ aesthetic and practical preferences can change wildly from year to year. If you’re not sure whether you are ready for a redesign, take an honest look at your attorney website, and ask yourself if it suffers from any of the five following problems:
- It’s ugly. Do the colors clash or seem inappropriate for the subject matter? Is the layout distracting? Are your eyes constantly drawn away from the real content by distracting bells and whistles?
- It’s hard to use. Do your menus make sense? Is your contact information clear and easy to find? Are your pages organized and easy to navigate?
- It’s unprofessional. Does your site look outdated or amateurish? Do you lack valuable content? Is your site filled with unrelated or spammy content? Are all your pictures and web videos unedited and shot with cheap equipment?
- It’s generic. Does your site read like a résumé? Does it look like every other lawyer website out there? Is your website really tailored to your needs and the needs of your clients?
- It’s not bringing in clients. Do you suffer from high bounce rates? Are your page rankings lagging? Has it been a while since your website actually generated any solid contacts or clients?
If you can answer “yes” to any of the above concerns, then that is a good indicator that your attorney website could stand a serious redesign. Talk to our online attorney marketing experts and law firm web design team today at 1-888-886-0939 for more information about how to get started.
