Thanks Heather! You're right, the number of factors and decisions probably require their own post. But generally, I would advise paying attention to design trends in order to ensure that your site never looks "dated." That doesn't mean it has to be on the cutting-edge of design, but we also wouldn't want someone to look at your site and *know* it was built ages ago. And similarly, keeping up with the latest in functionality trends and being positioned to take advantage of them. Older sites used to make extensive use of iFrames, for instance, until it was found to impair SEO. Now, any site that still uses iFrames or Flash is just killing themselves and needs to be revamped immediately.

Hi Mike,

Happy New Year! And, Wow. Ambitious and appropriate pulling off a new look for the site on New Year's Day. Hey, for all the BizSugar community members out there who run their own business websites, how often would you advise changing that look? And what kind of things are involved in making the change. It would probably make a great post on its own.
