How Old Is Your Website?

How much has web design changed in the last decade? Quite a bit!

More importantly, how does modern website design affect your business today?

From Google’s ever changing search algorithms to the increase in mobile usage among all adults the costs could be huge. Not to mention your brand looking stale or perhaps your website is so old you no longer offer some of the same products and services as when your website was first built!

Let’s take a quick look back.

Here are a few websites we designed in 2009 for a some of our Texas clients. They came to us because they needed help with a website that featured solid branding and positioning in a changing market. At the time, these were really well done. Good layouts with easy navigation and imagery. This was cutting edge stuff in 2009!

Hoffer Furniture Rental

Instead of purchasing furniture for a new office in an uncertain economy or to stage an empty home for sale, try “Furniture Rental for Homes and Offices” from a firm “Serving the Greater Houston Area.” Ever heard of the “Hoffer Offer – You Just Can’t Beat It?”

Things have certainly changed since then.

How does new website design help businesses in today’s economy?

As our design chops have increased and we’ve grown into a full-service marketing company we’ve been implementing more and more persuasion and user experience into our website designs.

These take advantage of changes in technology and evolution in human behavior.

We look at how people will use your website to learn more about your company, find the products and services they need, and ultimately become your customer.

Here’s how it looks now:

This is the website for Select Athletics which uses a mobile first approach to ensure that their target audience is able to use and view their website from their smart phones with ease.

With SAM Tech we used bold accents to drive people to the information they need quickly (see what I did there).
