And if you’re feeling uninspired by your website, chances are your readers are feeling it too. But with a little know how, you can revamp your website in just a few hours.

Stellar way one: Create a new freebie.

If your websites become a little tired and your list growth has become stagnant then it’s the perfect time to revive that freebie and breathe life into your list. So put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) and get it out to them in just 6 simple steps.

  • Identify your clients biggest frustrations.

Step Two – ALIGN

  • Decide what offer to create from the intersection of their frustrations and your services

Step Three – BENEFITS

Stellar way two: Add some wow with fonts.

I’m a sucker for a good font and you should be too.
They are a great way to add your personality to help your pages come to life! A great font can quickly change the aesthetic of your website the moment it’s applied the problem is, all the info out there makes it seem like you need a degree to choose a decent font as a beginner.

When you click through to a font you will see the ‘Test Drive’ option. Here you can type in your own text + adjust the font size.

You could take it one step further by downloading the font to your computer then using a graphic tool like Pixlr or PicMonkey to create different graphics to see how it performs alongside the rest of your branding – ie; headers, featured images, social media icons etc…

Step Four

Add your new fonts to your website. This can be done by either enlisting the help of a plugin or adding it to your themes custom CSS files. I haven’t tried any of the font plugins out there so I can’t make a recommendation but this post reviews 4 WP font plugins to help you decide.

Personally, I prefer the latter because I feel like I have so much more control over the output of a font.

Stellar way three: Replace that outdated header with an upbeat ‘profesh’ one.
