Website Redesign. Doesn't need to be too hard.

Written by Margaret Shakibaie

Are you on your second or third website, and still not happy?

You are not alone. It is estimated that most business have 3 – 4 websites before they are comfortable with their web presence. This is often because of a number of reasons, including

  • not have a high perceived value of their website when getting started
  • not initially understanding their target market
  • not initially being able to define their product and service
  • building a cheap DIY templated website thinking something is better than nothing

Redesigning your website does not need to be as stressful as you think? You just need ask yourself a few questions before getting started on your website redesign project.

  • What are my currents websites strengths and weaknesses
  • What result do I want from the redesign
  • Who is my target market
  • Document your successes
  • Stalk the competition
  • Develop a website brief

How your original website is initially developed will depend on how expensive and extensive your website redesign will be. If the website is designed on a good solid CMS like Joomla or WordPress to some extent, you will be able to retain your content, page structure and most importantly your URL’s.

Joomla completely separates the design from the content, with none of your content hard coded into the template. This gives you the ability to completely redesign your websites look and feel while retaining your original content and page structure.

Don’t waste your link juice.

But if you are not happy with the existing page structure but over time you have developed some amazing backlinks from high ranking domains, a good SEO component that can manage your redirections. Ensuring that your hard earned back links are not lost.
