Keeping Your Website Fresh

Allan Ross - Keeping Your Website Fresh

Today I’d like to talk about: Are you keeping your website fresh and up to date?

Probably the most important marketing tool your company has today, is your website. The web has become your online portfolio where your prospects and clients check out your company to get information of your services. Now that being said, just like any other marketing tool, there are professional websites and there are amateur sites. It is becoming more and more important to present your company web presence in the best possible light. It will keep your site visitors coming back.

Now how do you keep your website fresh. Here are some of my suggestions.

  • Make sure the content in your site is an accurate reflection of what your company does and is visitor friendly. Sometimes less information is better than more.
  • Nothing looks worse than a “What’s New” section that hasn’t been updated since 2004. Keeping your site fresh and functioning effectively as a business tool is critical. It also will help your company rankings in search engines.
  • Make sure you let the public in on what’s going on. And with new technology coming out, it’s hard to stay ahead of the crowd. If you write articles or newsletters make sure you post them on your site or on your blog, and change them every month or two.
  • Make sure (if you’re selling something) you always have the latest merchandise. It will keep your site visitors coming back.
  • Hire a web developer to do your regular updates. Someone who specializes in website maintenance, SEO (search engine optimization) is a key.

Remember your website is your online portfolio to the world. Be proud of your online presence. You work hard, so have your website also work hard for you.

  1. Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple
    tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got
    your design. Many thanks

    Currently it sounds like WordPress is the best blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

      WordPress has quickly moved up as the leading web development platform period. Joomla and Drupal both offer open source for web and blog development but WordPress is what we would suggest if you’re looking to create something for yourself now.

      Yes this is in WordPress.

      Thank you. We’ve been doing seminars and consulting for a lot of businesses lately so we haven’t been as active as we’d like. But soon we’ll be bringing those topics to this blog so everyone can benefit from them.

    When someone writes an post he/she maintains the image of a user in his/her mind that how a user can be aware of it.
    Therefore that’s why this piece of writing is perfect. Thanks!
