First impressions do matter, especially when potential customers are visiting your website. Your prospective customers will start making assumptions about your organization at the first glance of your website. If your website has an unattractive user interface or poor navigation, potential customers will immediately leave your website in search of something better.
So what factors do prospective customers evaluate on your website to decide whether or not it’s worth their time? Is all the content on your website relevant to your business? Do you think it’s time for a website redesign?
Knowing When to Start Over
Obviously, all websites need continuous improvement. Just surf through your competitors’ websites or any website for a few minutes and discover that they are looking at old and obsolete graphics and content. But there are so many other reasons to redesign your website; some of them not so obvious, but are at the core of your website.
Making Your Website Your Priority
It is common for all businesses to neglect their website just dealing with the day-to-day business activities. It is not enough just to have some random information and few contact phone numbers. These days, to stay ahead of your competition you need to pull your customers in with an interesting website design and relevant content. This will not only attract the first-timers, but also make them repeat visitors.
Website Redesign Checklist
Here is a simple checklist to help you evaluate and then decide if it is time to redesign your website:

Are your current business goals and strategies consistent with your website?
Does your offline and online marketing complement each other?
Is your website constructed of CSS and XHTML, as well as HTML?
Have you eliminated all broken links and/or typos from your website?
Is your website easy to read – legible font sizes, colors and style?
Is your website information and contact information up to date?
Is your website’s appearance clean and simple (i.e. not jumbled up with flashing images/graphics or overwhelming content)?
Does your website display properly in all the web browsers, specially the new ones (e.g. Apple’s Safari, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome)?
Does your website have a low visitor bounce rate (i.e. visitors click to your website and do not leave immediately from the first landing page)?
Does your website rank on Google and other search engines?
Is your website updated regularly with blogs, news releases, newsletters, video demos/webinars and white papers?
Is your website mobile friendly (e.g. accessible to iphone and blackberry users)?
Is your website easy to navigate (i.e.it’s easy to get from one page to another with top and sidebar navigation, including breadcrumb navigation)?
Does your website generate PPC leads with capturing mechanism to collect emails, like a form?
If you answered NO to most of the questions, then it is highly recommended that you immediately consider redesigning your website.

Act Quickly & Cautiously
Once you are aware that your website requires a redesign, you need to do your homework.  There are many web designing companies offering expert solutions, but not all website architects and designers are worth their price.
Look for those that use latest market trends, have a portfolio of website redesign projects that they are willing to share with you and take the time to understand your needs before making blanket recommendations about what your website should look like.
Little Updates Can Make An Impact
Make sure to ask for the simple solutions that can make a big impact at a fraction of the cost; like adding conversion forms, contact forms and other interactive elements that will allow you to collect leads.
Make Your Redesign a Priority
These little updates will save time and get you moving forward until you are ready for a complete redesign. These subtle changes should not take the place of a much needed website redesign, but will get you headed in the right direction until you have allocated the funds needed for a complete overhaul of your online presence.      Article Source
