Redesign your website.

In the graphic design world, visuals have life spans. The average corporate identity lasts 10-20 years. The average website lasts 5 years. If your website is looking old and tired, it might be time for a website redesign.

Much like a car, a website needs maintenance from time to time.  Sometimes this involves rebuilding the engine and other times you only require a new coat of paint.  WSI's website redesign services are based around looking at your current website and pushing it to the next level.

Many times a site can be reworked to allow for greater usability and user friendliness with little to no effort.  WSI's staff can assess the vitals of your website for things like ADA compliance, Search Engine Optimization and usability.  You many not need to start from the ground up.  Contact us to find out what services we can offer to bring that old website up to speed with our website redesign services.

Common Website Redesign Process Questions

I want a website, but I don't know where to start.  What should I do?

Website Redesign can seem like a very daunting task.  The web is full of website Redesign articles, technologies and "experts". Filtering through all of the nonsense and finding out what you specifically need really isn't as complicated as it may seem.

You can start your web Redesign RIGHT NOW! And any work that you put into Redesigning your website should be reflected in lower web development and Redesign costs. Here are a couple of steps that can take you a step in the right direction in your web redesign process. You can also contact a WSI website designer for free to walk you through these steps.

Decide what your website redesign budget is (Cost).

Do you have a hundred dollar or a million to invest in your website redesign and development? Your budget should remain separate from anything else for the time being. Don't worry about how much web redesign costs, think about how much you can comfortably spend.  It is very important to know how much you have to work with. You may also want to set a minimum and a maximum budget. What you can afford is one of the elements of web redesign that is fairly fixed so make note of it. Remember, this is not what you think it is going to cost, this is what you have to spend.

Decide when you want your website to be available to the public (Time).

Knowing when you want your site to "go live" is very important in the web redesign process. This information will allow you to set milestones for various web redesign processes.  Right now the important part is to know the very latest date you would like to be able to welcome visitors to your site.  Also note an ideal time for the website to be released. This website redesign factor can be ambiguous or loosely defined, a month from now or next year.  Make note of your desired time frame for your web redesign.

Define what you want from your web redesign (Scope).

Of any of the steps, this one requires the most work. But even this step can be broken down bit by bit to make defining the scope of your web redesign process easier. For now lets answer a couple of quick questions that will help you define what you want from your website. Try to answer each of these questions with a sentence or two.

  • Who is your target market?
  • What are you selling, providing or wanting to tell them?
  • How many web pages do you think you will need to tell your market what you are offering?
  • What is the purpose of each of these website pages?
Website redesign Process Example Summary

Now lets look at an example of a web redesign plan based on the completion of these 3 steps.

Web redesign budget: $500-5000

Web redesign Timeframe: I want my website available to the public two weeks from the web redesign start date.

Web redesign Scope: My target market is fisherman in the local and surrounding area.  I/we provide fishing supplies and boating supplies. I think we can inform our target market of our services and products with 5 website pages. The first web page would display our current specials. Our second web page would list all of our boating products. The third website page would list all of our fishing products. The fourth page would have information on our company, including locations and driving directions. The last page would allow website visitors to contact us.

With a few easy steps we have defined our website redesign budget, timeframe and scope. This information can be provided to any web design company to help in providing a quote for you.  If you would like to get a quote from WSI feel free to contact either our Ames, Iowa (Midwest) office or our Fort Myers, Florida (Southeast) office for a free quote.

Why are you giving away information on website redesign for free?  Where is the catch?

There is no catch! WSI has always held the idea that information should be free, services and products should cost money. We strive to answer all of our clients web redesign or other web service questions before starting development. A little planning goes a long way, as the saying goes. Not only does providing information make the web redesign process easier on our clients, it makes it easier for our web designers and web developers as well.

Many website creation companies try to sell you on a list of their features or expertise regardless if you need them or not. This type of sales approach leads to over budget projects, missed deadlines and worst of all, upset clients. WSI focuses on long term relationships, we would be shooting ourselves in the foot if we didn't help our clients get what they want rather than what we want to give them.

If you would like to know more about our website redesign process, web development practices or if you would like to discuss any other website technologies with us, give us a call, stop in at either our Ames, Iowa (Midwest) or Fort Myers Florida (Southeast) offices, or send us an email. We would be more than happy to answer your questions.

What website creation services do you offer?

It might sound cliché, but a better question might be "What website design services don't we offer?" WSI has been in the web design and web development business for a long time.  In that time we have provided website solutions for a wide range of clients from big to small. We have worked with all industries, in part or in full to deliver website creation projects on time and on budget. For a list of some of our services check our our services pages which includes design, training, programming, hosting and marketing services.

We are constantly adding new web service offerings. For a complete list of web services contact either of our offices in Ft Myers, Florida (Southeast location) or Ames, Iowa (Midwest location) for details.

Okay, this is a lot of information, and I still have questions. What should I do?

Easy, give us a call or contact us. We will answer all your questions even if you decide not to do development with us. We believe that by providing you with the answers to your website redesign questions you will be better able to reach your goals.

We like what we see and want to begin a relationship with you, however, we're located hundreds of miles away from your office and no where near Iowa, the Midwest, Florida or the Southeast - will this work?

We have had, and continue to develop, numerous relationships with clients that were not located around either our Ames Iowa, or Ft. Myers Florida locations. Some of our clients weren't even in the Midwest or Southeast.

Depending on the scope of the web redesign services or website creation services required, face to face meetings are not necessary to develop a custom web design solution, web design process or web redesign plan. Many of our clients enjoy sitting in the comfort of their own office or home and conducting a phone or shared desktop meeting with one of our trainers, designers or developers.

Our attention to detail and customer service has helped us deliver many systems without ever having a face to face discussion with the client. Contact either our Midwest (Ames, Iowa) office or our Fort Myers, Florida location today for a free consultation and to begin your website redesign process relationship with us.
