Why do you need to redesign your website?

Is your website stuck in the past? Are you struggling to attract and retain customers online? It’s time to take a deep dive into the top reasons why a website redesign could be the game-changer your business needs. Don’t let your website hold you back from reaching your full potential. Discover the power of a website redesign today.

Here are some of the top reasons to redesign your website:

Outdated Design

Your website is often the first impression customers have of your business, and a stale and outdated site can drive them away. By modernising your site’s appearance and improving its user experience, you can captivate and engage your visitors, leaving them with an irresistible impression of your brand.

Brand Refresh

If your brand has undergone a significant change, ensuring that your website aligns with your refreshed messaging and image can be equally important. A website redesign is a powerful tool that can help you modernise your digital presence and showcase your brand’s new identity in a fresh and captivating way.

Poor User Experience

Is your website a source of frustration for your users? Do slow load times, confusing navigation, or lack of mobile-friendliness cause them to abandon your site? A redesign could be the solution! By improving the user experience and making it effortless for visitors to find what they’re looking for, you’ll keep them engaged and boost your website’s success.

New Technology

With technology constantly evolving, there are always new and exciting web design trends and features to take advantage of. By incorporating these cutting-edge technologies into a redesign, your site can become more than just aesthetically pleasing. It can become a highly functional and user-friendly hub for your audience to engage with. Don’t settle for a subpar online presence when you can have a website that will wow your visitors and keep them coming back for more.

Business Goals Changing

As your business grows and evolves, so do your goals. However, a static website can hold you back from effectively conveying your message to your audience. That’s where a redesign comes in – it’s your chance to realign your site with your current goals and make a strong impact that resonates with your customers. Don’t let your website become a relic of the past – elevate it to new heights with a redesign that reflects the dynamic nature of your business.

In conclusion, a website redesign can help businesses achieve various goals, from rebranding to increasing traffic and improving user experience. However, the scale of the redesign will depend on the business’s goals and needs.

Cookie pop up choices for website visitors

Understand the browser cookie pop up choices you should present to visitors when they first visit your website. Lawrence Tilley from Design for Digital explains what he feels is the best practice for cookie choices. Watch the video above to understand more about our cookie banner solution.

Reasons why we should have a cookie pop up

Because of GDPR businesses have to be more compliant with cookies when visitors browse websites. Make your policy clear about tracking visitor’s movements.ย  Visitor’s should easily be able to either reject or accept cookies.

How Design for Digital implement a cookie banner

What we do on the Design for Digital website is display a very discrete cookie banner on their first visit. Other websites provide a cookie pop up appearing before the visitor can access any content which can feel intrusive. Therefore we prefer to make it more convenient for the visitor. Our cookie banner stores no cookies upon initial visit, except for functional ones. This means visitors can be confident about our website not tracking their every move. Each visitor has the ability to ‘accept’ or ‘reject’ tracking cookies in our cookie banner providing them with a clear choice regarding cookies.

Cookie banner settings

Visitors can even see in more detail the types of cookies the website is storing in their browser when they visit the ‘settings’. Here they can simply enable or disable these cookie categories for a more refined choice. A cookie pop up box then appears providing further details on cookie purposes in an easy to read format.

Once the visitor has confirmed their cookie choices, the website hides the banner and refreshes the page. Cookies accepted are then set in the browser and cookies that are declined will be ignored.

Cookie banner settings

Privacy overview

First visitor’s are provided with a privacy overview. This explains the reasons why cookies are used on the website in a clear and easy to read format.

Strictly necessary cookies

The next section displays the ‘strictly necessary cookies’ which help with the website’s functionality (such as storing your login details or your basket area to make the website experience more pleasurable).

3rd party cookies

We then go into more detail on the 3rd party cookies the website could store. This is usually where we place the Google Analytics / Google Tag Manager cookies to track website user activity. If you use tracking for marketing purposes (sales CRM integrations, etc.) you’d add information about these cookies here.

Privacy policy link

Should visitors would like further information on your cookie policy then we provide an additional section with a convenient link to your policy page.

Cookie audit and cookie pop up banner solutions

If you’d like us to help create a cookie pop up or cookie banner solution for your business, please get in touch. We can even provide a website cookie audit beforehand to understand what cookies are already being stored. It’s really important to ensure your cookie management solution is streamlined and usable.
