If you decide to update, there are several free resources available for advice; from How To Optimize Your Website” to “How To Write Good Copy. “

Also consider, how easy or difficult it is to access your website. Do you use a CMS portal for website management, or do you depend on a web designer for assistance?   Is your website user-friendly and hard to change so updates are few and far between?
