professional website redesign services - to give your site a boost
stay ahead of the competition with a website redesign
Any web development company worth their salt will recognise when an existing website would benefit from judicious tweaking rather than throwing the whole thing out and starting from scratch. We never recommend a fresh start when you already have a good basis to work with.
Your site might work perfectly well in every respect apart from the way it looks. Its subtle, but design trends change and before you know it your site can end up looking old fashioned and clunky. On the other hand you might need to go a step further and take new technologies into account, even if your existing content still fits the bill.
does your website need a redesign?
A lot of businesses hang on to their old websites for as long as they can, unaware that with a small investment they could actually start to see their business grow. Does any of the following apply to you?
- Perhaps you’re happy with the overall design, but the website isn’t bringing in any business.
- Users are bouncing off the site without clicking further than the home page.
- The user journey is clunky and confusing.
- If your website isn’t currently responsive and working on mobiles and tablets..
- Too many changes to the site have left it looking more complicated than it should do.
- Business priorities are different now and need to be reflected in the website.
- The navigation may need simplifying
- Some imagery is starting to look out of date.
website redesigns should be treated carefully
There are a lot of considerations when it comes to redesigning a website. The biggest risk we face is losing all your valuable search engine rankings. This in turn results in fewer visitors, lost sales and enquiries. You need a web design agency who have fail-proof processes in place to ensure that your site retains all its SEO goodness and some. Well, we’re that agency.
The other important factor is your loyal and regular site visitors. We need to be mindful of alienating them with a drastic redesign. Even big brands often fall foul of this. We can be sensitive to their discerns and ease them over to a beautiful new interface designed to leave them feeling good about their new experience.
how do our redesign projects work?
We start by doing a full investigation into exactly why you’re looking for a redesign for your website; exploring your current problems and identifying your desires for the new site. We then put forward the best solution for your needs whilst always putting your user/customer at the heart of our solution. Our unique process for this is how we get the best results. Your average website redesign timeline is around 3-4 months.
In delivering our solution we are mindful of not alienating your users by so drastically redesigning your site that it no longer represents the brand they are familiar with. By having a proper understanding of you and your customers we can easily avoid this scenario and we’ll work alongside you at every step to ensure we are all aligned in our approach.
We have commissioned OrangeGrove to build our last two websites – the fact that we returned for a second speaks for itself. Once again Louisa took the ideas of what we wanted to achieve and turned them into an end result that looks the part. What I believe truly sets this business apart is their speed of response and quick turnaround when things need to get done fast. Most importantly, I trust that our biggest marketing tool is in safe hands with OrangeGrove.
