When is the last time your Web Property had a makeover? That long huh? Well, if it has been over two years, it is only best to inform you that your website is indeed outdated. With internet technology constantly changing, your website should stay up-to-date with some of those changes to be effective on the world wide web. Your Web Property is your presence on the web would you agree? Therefore, you have to look your best, otherwise, you won't have many visitors or even worst; you won't have any returning visitors. There are several reason why you need a website makeover, but we will discuss that towards the end of this article.
When we makeover your website, we will use a similar design to your current site and turn it into a more modern look and feel. If you want a different design, you can choose to have your entire site rebuilt (choose packages above). This is not the same as site transfer, because when we transfer your site from another host, we will transfer all contents as is. Learn more about site transfers here. Taking Over Your Website That Another Designer Built
A large amount of our Clients come from another web hosting company or web Designer. Some request to have their Web Property updated with a new look, while others want their property duplicated with the exact look and feel of their current Web Property. We call duplicating your website “Site Mirroring,” and although we would love to duplicate all designs, the truth of the matter is, sometimes we just can't, and here are some of the reasons why:
*Your current design is a template. Many template styles are under a copyright, so for us to copy templates would cause us to violate a template owner's design, and we really don't want to do that. We can work with you to produce something similar which has always been the case for every Client who ran into this scenario.
*You are not the owner of your Web Property design but your Web Designer is. If your website's copyright is held by someone else other than the website owner, permission would have to be obtained by the website owner to grant permission for Griotsites to duplicate the style.
Reasons to make over your website:
There are many obvious reasons why you should update the look and style of your website at least every two years. One is that your space should be appealing to your visitors, and if frequent visitors see that you are not attending to your website, their return rate is slim to none. Why come back when the information is the same information from 2 years ago?
*An updated website can improve your identity branding. Again, you will be fresh on your web visitor's mind if they know that coming to your web space means new information and new functionality.
*An updated website will Improved Online Visibility & Search Engine Performance. Google is a stickler for making available to the world relevant information. They use robots to crawl your website to look for clean web pages that are linked well and provide relevant information.
*New social media sites pop up on the internet all of the time. You may need to update your social buttons as well as check the links to make sure that they are live, and that you are connected to the appropriate social sites.
*New features are being created and made available to web developers everywhere. A web makeover can add and/or fix your site's features and functionality.
*You also may need meta tags and keyword updates performed on your site.
We can recreate your entire site by duplicating each page which allows us to do maintenance/updates/corrections to your existing website. We do not perform makeovers on servers outside of Griotsites. In order for us to go under the “hood” of your website and make any necessary changes, you will have to purchase a web design package to make your website accessible to us. The time and labor to makeover your website is equivalent to the process of creating a new web design. Once the site is recreated by Griotsites.com, we will have access to make any changes that you desire.
Note-site must remain live on previous server for 7 days to allow us enough time to duplicate your site.
