Everyone knows the power of having a website for a business, but a website is only as good as the design. If you have a poorly designed website that hasn’t been updated in 10 years, you could be losing money every day!
Having your old website updated with a professional and fresh new design can work wonders for your business or organization!
1. Be sure to back up the old site files and all text on the site in case you need to retrieve information or revert back to your old design.
2. If your website is already ranking and getting traffic, be sure to keep your page URLs intact, but if the URL structure must change be sure to redirect the old URLs to the new URLs.
3. Try to keep branding consistent; use similar colors and a similar identity system so the change isn’t too shocking, unless you are trying to totally re-brand.
