Unfortunately, it is the end of the road for Adobe Business Catalyst. The service will shut down and stop hosting websites as of September 26, 2021. This means that everything will be deleted once Adobe shuts it down, so it is imperative that you export your site as soon as possible.
You need to start thinking about where you will relocate your website so it doesn’t disappear when Business Catalyst goes down. How will you get your new site up and running? We understand that not every website works with a single platform so we provide you with a variety of migration solutions to best fit your requirements. Keep reading to find out more!
Update your website with the Business Catalyst ‘end-of-life’ Migration
You should also take a look at the functionality of your website while you’re considering where to relocate it. A website’s average lifespan is 2-3 years before it requires a fresh design and upgrades to its technology—when was the last time your website was updated? This may be the ideal moment for you to spruce up your site and make sure it’s performing as intended.
There are many aspects to a great website, including:
- Mobile responsiveness
The rise in mobile browsing means it’s more important than ever to ensure your website looks appealing on a variety of smaller screens and mobile devices. Adapting and appearing professional is the key! Nobody is going to stay on your website if it’s difficult to navigate, images are overlapping, it resembles a shrunken desktop version, or you cannot click on your menu or buttons properly. It’s important to have a website that adjusts accordingly and looks great on a range of different screen sizes.
- Up-to-date content
Does your website still advertise that service you stopped offering 5 years ago and never got around to taking off your homepage? This is an opportunity for a full review of all your website’s content, so make sure it outlines your current services or product range that you have available. This will let both customers and Google in on how experienced you are in your field and ensures you maintain a professional yet authentic image & branding.
- Load speed
The speed of your website’s load time is important to Google in terms of how it ranks your site. Web page load speed can also have a detrimental impact on customer experience. You want your website to load as quickly as possible so that customers aren’t dissatisfied and go somewhere else. A fast and responsive website that performs optimally will go a long way in securing leads and boosting your conversions.
