The look and feel of websites change almost as quickly as fashion, and updates in Google’s algorithms can penalize static sites. There’s also the self-evident point that your website will become ineffective if it remains the same. If any fashion brand offered the same collection one year to the next, the brand would suffer and go obsolete. It’s the same with your website. No matter the industry, a dated look implies a dated company.
REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO UPDATE YOUR WEBSITE
1.The Content is Out of Date
If your site refers to events that are old or hosts out-of-date information, it will look dated to the visitor. Time sensitive material that’s old gives the impression your business is stagnating.
2. To take Advantage of New Features
Website technology is evolving fast. In recent years, it has become increasingly important to have features on your site that integrate with social media because of how much traffic it can send your way.
Online booking has become imperative for 24 hour availability of quick in time booking.
3. The Look May Be Out of Date
Today’s most successful sites embrace simplicity and clean lines. If your website looks anything other than current it needs an upgrade intervention.
4. It’s Not Responsive for Mobile
More searches are taking place on mobile devices than on computers, this has changed the Google algorithm to benefits sites optimized for mobile.
The Wall Street Journal reported on how the leading search engine had tweaked its algorithm for mobile searches to “favor sites that look good on smartphone screens.” If the content of a site is too wide for a phone screen and links are too small your site will be negatively affected.
Most all websites built today use responsive design, so it displays cleanly on multiple devices. A fully responsive site that can adapt to any device or screen begin at $2,000.
Does your salon website look “homemade”? Does your website need a make over? Are you putting a fresh face forward to potential clients?
A beautifully branded, professional online appearance is a must-have to stand out of the crowd. A consistent brand experience across all touch points convince potential clients you deserve their trust.

COMPETITION IS FIERCE
In the business of beauty, competition is fierce. In order for your salon to stand out in the digital world you need a stunning online presence - a unique website design that reflects your salon character and the nature of the business.
Many salon owners mistakenly only implement a fundamental website to save on operating and marketing costs. These website design efforts range from adequate to amateur (DIY to friends or family services) ultimately sacrificing the polished online presence necessary to stand out in a crowd.
Beauty business owners soon realize the novice efforts at website design are resulting in amateur results. The lack of skill to create a beauty website that is both attractive and interactive becomes apparent. They discover the site is not attracting the business, and that their site is similar to thousands of others - a total “no-no” in all business, but most importantly the business of beauty.
