Moving Company Websites: 3 Updates to Make in 2015

Moving Company Website Design

It’s March of 2015 and that means it’s time to do some spring cleaning. Every year it seems that the online landscape is changing a little more, and the moving industry is no exception. Just like your customers are evaluating whether they should move this summer, you should take a step back and take a fresh look at your website.

If you are a mover in a big city, it’s very likely that you have dozens of competitors. Every little improvement you can make to your website counts when it comes to increasing leads and business each year.

Even though many people are now recommending people move in the early spring or late fall to save money, the summer is still the busiest time of the year for movers.

Here’s a few things to consider whether you have a moving company website or are considering building a new one from scratch.

New images

If your images are a few years old then you could be missing out on customers. Studies show that high quality images are very important when customers are deciding between potential movers. Make sure you have great pictures of your trucks, your team, and your happy clients right on the home page.

Faster hosting

If you run a moving company then you know that every hour counts. When it comes to website design every second counts in terms of the time it takes your website to load. Make sure your site loads fast on every device. Every second delay is costing you business and bookings.

Fresh content

Very similar to updating images your content needs to be refreshed every few years. Think of this as putting a fresh coat of paint on a house every few years. It’s a small thing but can make a big difference. How do you describe your moving company? What does your “about us” page say about your history? All these things could stand to be reviewed and updated every few years.

Just like moving, updating your website doesn’t have to be painful. However, if you aren’t working with an expert you can suffer.

6 Best Practices for Local Marketing & SEO

best practices for seoSEO is a long and laborious exercise used to boost a website’s organic, or “free,” results. Depending on the amount of competition, this could take months for noticeable results. Search Engine Optimization is definitely a long-term process. If someone tells you they can quickly place you on the first page of Google in the free results, be wary.

Search Engine Optimization continues to get harder as Google updates their algorithm more than 400 times a year to look for websites that are genuinely good versus websites that have had poor optimization, or SEO.
