Today let’s go over the factors behind deciding whether your site needs a rebuild or just a refresh. We recently covered this topic in a blog post but let’s expand on this week’s “Trinity Web Minute.”
If you find yourself constantly spending money to improve a WordPress site to further the design or functionality, it may be time for a rebuild. As New Jersey WordPress developers, we find it much more difficult trying to retrofit modern functionality on an older site. So, consider a rebuild if you’re throwing money at your site trying to bring it up to speed.
Here at Trinity Web Media, we are big believers in addition by subtraction. Rather than adding every plugin in the book to modernize your site, let’s find the right solution by eliminating what isn’t working. Addition by addition is a great way to find yourself with an unstable “house of cards” that could break at any moment.
Finally, are you able to make updates to your WordPress core? If you avoid updates afraid of conflicting themes/plugins, a rebuild may be in your near future.
After taking these factors into account, you’ll have a solid grasp on whether it is time to rebuild or refresh.
