When you first create your website, it might feel so exciting. Like all the doors of opportunity are open to you, and your business has nowhere to go but up! We just love that feeling here at Bluchic… but we know that it doesn’t always stay that way.
As you grow your business, and your products or services start to attract more clients, you might start to feel like your website isn’t quite at your level anymore. Sometimes, you might even dread sending potential clients or customers to your domain… just because it’s not the dream website you want it to be anymore.
Is there a way around that? Can you fall back in love with your website? We think so. Here are a few tips to help!
5 Ways to Fall Back in Love with Your Website
1 | Simplify your website
If you feel like your website is too cluttered or has too many options that don’t align with your business anymore, it’s time to tidy things up! Your website doesn’t have to be filled to the brim with content and calls-to-action and pages upon pages. In fact, the simpler, the better — especially if your services or products have changed a lot since your website launched. A simplified website is easier to read, navigate, and looks cleaner and more professional.
Our advice? Tap into your Google Analytics to see which pages are getting the most engagement. And the ones that aren’t? Archive them or turn them to “draft” mode. Keep the pages that matter most to you and your business; delete anything else that’s there to just ‘fill’ your site and feels like a chore to manage.
2 | Create engaging content
Websites are not meant to be “set it and forget it.” If you want to keep it feeling fresh, you need new content and frequent updates to your most important pages (which you just figured out, right??).
But we get it: Creating content on a consistent basis can be challenging, time-consuming, and just exhausting. And if you don’t love your own content on your website, chances are your audience won’t either. So, grab their attention by creating content you actually want to make and are passionate about. Write blogs to share your expertise, create new services pages to show off your new packages, and generally refresh your website to include content and copy that is up-to-date.
Pro tip: Consider outsourcing your web copy to an experienced writer who can capture your brand and voice. It will save you tons of time in the long run and allow you to focus on other aspects of your business!One secret to falling in love with your website again?

3 | Ensure your site is mobile-friendly + responsive
Wish you loved the way your site looks? If your site’s design doesn’t look good on a mobile phone, you’re missing out on tons of potential business. That’s because nearly 50% of all global website traffic comes from mobile phones. In other words: Your website has to look good on mobile devices.
On top of that, your website has to actually load — and quickly. In fact, if your website takes longer than three seconds to load (on mobile or desktop), more than half of your visitors will leave. And 80% of those visitors won’t come back. The bottom line: Your website needs a responsive and mobile-friendly design to ensure users can actually access and stay on your site.

One of the biggest reasons business owners fall out of love with their website is that it doesn’t look or feel like them. Maybe the design is all wrong, the copy is generic, and your personality doesn’t come through at all. Sound familiar? This happens because you’ve grown — and it’s time your website does, too!
