How to Audit your Website

In most cases, the main goal of your website is to sell your brand or company in an effective manner. Your website should target prospective clients or customers who have a need for your product or service. How compelling is your website design and content? 
When going through your website, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Is my website a true representation of my company?
  2. Would a new client understand what products or services I offer by looking through my website?
  3. Has my demographic changed since I first designed my website? 
  4. Is all my information up-to-date? 
  5. Where have my new clients come from, the web or WOM? 

Why Audit? 

Auditing allows you to evaluate the effectiveness of your own website and determine whether it’s time for website redesign, content overhaul, or a style update. Even if your website targets a small niche, individuals will navigate your site and absorb information differently. It’s crucial that as a web administrator, you understand the unique needs of your audience segments. When conveying information to a mass audience, content can get lost or misinterpreted. For this reason, measuring the effectiveness of your website is essential for business growth.
