"When You Should (& Shouldn't) Redesign Your Website" (Creator's Block, Ep. 63)

By Liz Moorehead

Liz Moorehead also recommends this free website performance assessment.

"When You Should (& Shouldn't) Redesign Your Website" (Creator's Block, Ep. 63)

Last week, Marcella and I welcomed Christine to the Creator's Block podcast to talk about what she and I learned while closely collaborating on two creative projects of unusual size.

One of those was a 10,000-word magnum opus (also known as pillar content) that discussed the five steps companies need to complete before they hire an agency to redesign their website. 

As a follow-on to the discussion we had with Christine about best practices for creative collaborations, Jessie-Lee and I wanted to use this week's episode to take a deep dive into the actual subject matter of one of the most important sections of that piece of pillar content.

Free Assessment: Website Performance Assessment

It's the first question any business should be able to answer internally before they even consider embarking on a website redesign:

"Why do we want to redesign our website?"

While the answer to this question will, understandably, be unique to your organization, there is such a thing as a bad answer. In fact, there are a few answers that should result in you immediately pumping the brakes on any website redesign initiative. 

And that's what this episode is all about -- understanding when you shouldn't and shouldn't redesign your website.

(Oh, and by the way, Jessie-Lee and I will be doing an AMA over at IMPACT Elite tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. about how we pulled this massive piece of content together -- hope to see you there!)

Enjoy!

What We Talked About

  • Why is asking "why" about a website redesign project so important?
  • What are the reasons you should redesign a website?
  • When should you not redesign your website -- or at least dig deeper about the reasons you think you should?
  • When should you redesign your website, and when should you only tweak it?
  • Also, what is a thought muffin? And how do you know when they're fully baked?
