I often mention this in my seminars and newsletters, but it bears repeating. Website “flavor” changes over time. If you look back at 1990’s websites, and move forward into 2000, 2005, 2010, and now today you’ll see a marked difference in layouts, design elements, etc.
What is driving design right now is the use of mobile devices. Sites must work properly on those little screens. That’s why you often see larger images, big buttons, etc.
For small business people, a website is a major investment that is your calling card to the world. It better look fresh and modern or you will be perceived as outdated.
