Web Site Re Design Projects Madison WI
Morningside Design, a Madison WI Web Design company is always up for the challenge of taking on Web Site Re Design Projects Madison WI.
As most Web Design companies in Madison WI know, taking on a Web Site Re design project can be hard work, with many difficult challenges to complete before your client signs off on the project and the newly re designed Web site goes live.
Some of these challenges can come from technology and others from the humans involved in the Web site re design project. I will discuss two of what I see as the biggest challenges in completing a successful Web site redesign project.
Web Site Technology
When a client comes to you with a Web site that was built in the early 2000’s and wants to keep the Web site “the same, but with the newest Web technology” you smile and start thinking how in the heck are you going to transfer their old content to your new, cutting edge WordPress theme?
The answers are not always simple or easy to implement once you get going. There are going to be situations where you have a client that has a deep attachment to an outdated logo, header or some other old part of their Web site and there is “no way” they want it gone from the new Web site project.
This can be a tricky situation because they are the client and they are paying you. And you being the professional Web designer want to make the client happy and get paid at the same time. Right?
It will be up to you, the professional Web designer to explain to the client that the outdated asset needs to go and it will be better for them in the long run because you will be helping their Web site visitors have a better user experience. This is a great way to get more visitors to your Web site and will greatly increase the chances that they will stay there.
I am working with a client right now who wanted to keep an old, outdated Flash header for use in their new WordPress theme. The Flash header was kinda neat, but did not show up in many mobile devices due to the lack of support for Flash.
The client eventually dropped this idea and allowed me to add a static header that will render well in any browser and will not leave any of her mobile visitors with an incomplete Web page to look at.
