Why Get A Website Re-Design?

They are a major part of any business, a shop window that website content needs tobe updated and freshened up as much as a window display or shop interior.

The best analogy is the seasons of the year (spring, summer, winter and autumn); the seasons change bringing new colours, new life and a new perspective on the world.

A website being updated can bring a new lease of life to a business, showing visitors that the business is alive and on the pulse of things.

In most cases, a website re-design involves a major overhaul of a few or all of the pages for the following reasons:

  • Reformatting Web Pages
  • Updating Your Online Store With New Products
  • Optimising Your Website For Mobile Devices
  • Optimising Cluttered Web Pages
  • Creating New Content Or Blog Posts
  • Optimising Landing Pages That Are Used For Advertising

The internet search engines rank websites based on their mobile usability.  Since there are a wide number of smartphones and software packages are regularly updated for each one, how your website appears for mobile is now very important.

Since most of us now use smartphones for online search, you website needs to appear clearly, be attractive and be functional.

Responsive websites should automatically update and are the way of the future.

Website Audit

Before getting a website re-design, having a website audit done first would be a good idea.

Going through your existing website to review the existing content and analytics.  See which pages are popular and which are not.  Which pages are loading properly and which ones are not.

Are there any 303 pages, or 404 pages that cannot be found.  How many pages re-redirects are there and are there too many?

Define Your Target Audience

Your website is not going to be attractive to everyone as we are all different.

Certain industries work in certain ways, because people who have a similar mindset are drawn into certain industries.  For example people that are more creative work in creative industries.  People with scientific or mathematical characters are drawn into others.

Defining your target audience is important, so as a website re-design will apply to that persona.

What Are Some Re-Design Ideas?

The easiest way to quickly change a sites feel is changing the colour scheme.  This is considered the ‘skin’ of the site, the background image, the background colour and maybe the headings on the site.

Adapting it around the seasons is a great way to show people the change between spring to summer, winter to spring.

People’s moods change as the seasons change and this mood can be plugged into just with a few design changes on a site.  Some of the easiest website re-design ideas are the best.
