While there is no specific rule of thumb in web design for when you should redesign your website, there are many factors that signal it is time to revamp things. I addressed this topic in our August e-letter and decided to post it to our blog as well.
We recently launched our 2nd donated non-profit website (see the 1st) for 2008, this time for the Lynnda Laubach Breast Cancer Awareness Ride. This growing event offers a day of fun while raising money for the Cancer Center at Regions Hospital. The main event is the 100 mile motorcycle ride and the evening ends with two LIVE bands and a pizza dinner in Rogers, MN.
The past few months Five has been very fortunate to land some great new web design projects. The initial creative and design process is always full of fun, energy and challenges.
I get the question in many meetings to compare why thousands of dollars spent with Five Technology is better than using one of the template web design options or a packaged web solution. Of course you get what you pay for, but here is a little question I fire back. Would you go through a drive-thru to order a website from McWebsite’s?
To date this year, Five Technology has donated our web design services and content management solution for two different local organizations. The first was to the “Vote Yes” committee in Delano for their efforts in getting two school referendums passed. The second website has just recently been released and is for the non-profit Buffalo, Minnesota Food Shelf.
Colorado monogrammed gifts retailer, little dreamers, has big ideas for their new e-commerce website that went LIVE last week. Business owners Nicole and Paula sought a better web design to brand their unique monogrammed baby gifts and more and they needed it powered by an easy to use content management system and e-commerce solution. Five’s custom web design coupled with the SMC was just the right solution.
