15 Ways to avoid sending your website redesign to hell

When you first launched your website, it seemed to meet your needs and be an asset to the business.

Over time, however, things change, and a website that once supported your organizational objectives will often morph into something that actually works against you achieving your business goals. Today, your company doesn’t just need a website...it needs a well-designed, easily navigable, engaging website that meets the needs of your customers and your business alike.

According to Stanford University, 75% of people judge the credibility of a company based on the design of its website. Website redesign is a complex undertaking, but the benefits of a new website can transform a good business into a great business.
