So — why should have a fresh new look for your website? Well, for starters, after a while it gets boring. There will be people who will visit your site and look at it and say, “I’ve done that before.”
Been there — done that. Now, if they come back and it is slightly different, they are going to think, “Ooh it’s different and they will poke around and have a look. Seriously — it’s that simple.
So here are 3 simple ways you can refresh your look and make your website stand out again.
#1 Home Page
Just rearrange things a bit. If you have an image at the top, change it. If you have things in your sidebar, change them out or change the colors.
Now, I am not talking about conversions — that is a bit more advance and we need to leave it to another podcast.
If you are not comfortable changing it, you can have someone on Fiverr do it.
You can change the navigation bar with different titles, etc. You can add or take things away from the footer, the header, and more.
You can add an opt-in so that when others visit your site, you can give them something to subscribe to.
#2 The Menu
Now, while I mentioned the menu above, I was only talking about colors, but in this section, why not change what is IN your menu.
Of course you are going to have your home button, contact us, about us, etc, but move those things around — maybe even to a new section so that things look a bit different.
Change the style and add a sub menu, etc and that will make it look a lot more different.
You can do it, especially if you have a WordPress site — it is not rocket science.
#3 Your Main Pages
Now, I suggest you go through the main pages of your website. If you are not sure which are your main pages, simply go to your Google Analytics, and look at your most popular landing pages.
If you are not sure how to do it, use Youtube or Google to figure out how to do it.
Go through the popular pages and replace the images with new and better ones. Maybe you have gotten better at photography.
