Owning and operating a website is like owning a piece of real estate. Sometimes it needs a new boiler, a new coat of paint, or maybe even a more substantial piece of reconstruction. Web Brilliant is a leader in doing website reconstruction projects of all sizes for both new and existing clients. For clients who know what remodeling work they want done, we jump in immediately and make the changes according to your specs. For clients who want some updating but aren’t sure of precisely what they need, we would begin by doing a complete “inspection” of your website, just like a house inspector would do prior to a house being sold. To learn more about this service, please see the Website Reviews page of our site. For the remainder of this page, we will assume that we are discussing the case of a client who desires some specific updates to their site.
If you decide you would like us to remodel your website, the process is similar to creating a new site, with the added steps of cleaning up your existing context (text and images) and moving them to your newly-designed site. Remodeling a web site usually means adding some additional functionality, and giving the web site an updated look and feel. Depending on how trendy your site (or business) is, you likely want to update the appearance at least once every 1-2 years, to keep pace with technology (and with the website updates of your competitors).
There are many reasons to rebuild a website. It may be ranking poorly in search engines, it may be too slow, it may contain lots of sloppy ad hoc updates that need structure, and/or it may be simply “out of fashion”. Does your website load slowly? We can remove some underlying code and make that code more crisp and in accordance with current Best Practices, and we can also optimize images (as well as use a few more techniques) to make the site load faster. Does your website break in certain browsers? A very common update is due to the evolving nature of browsers.
Sometimes a web site created a few years ago does not display properly in the newer versions of browsers. Web Brilliant works within web standards to make sure web sites we remodel work in all the major current browsers.
Other common causes for updates are updating menu/navigation systems (which are constantly evolving), updating and freshening the design elements, and keeping up with updates made by your competition.
