    Recently, I have received emails and calls from some companies in need of website re-design. They always come with the same question " why re-design?" if the information is already online.

    Below I have posted some reasons

    * Unfinished website: it is very common that the person that was hired in first instance doesn't finish the project ( not in all the cases) but it happens when you hire unprofessional persons withour any trajectory or referral, nor even a good testimonial, mostly they leave the images 50% processed and many broken links, then, runaway with your money.

    * Web design wrong: in many cases the image doesn't match the website's identity or purpose ( logo, colors, etc.)

    * Low quality website: the quality standards are very important due to the economy globalization, that way, our website can be visible worldwide.

    * You are not satisfied with the images: if the company or freelancer who provides you the service doesn't include a high quality image that portraits the company properly, you are definately needing a change.

    In many cases, the first time that a customer gets any kind of web design, he/she doesn't have many knowledges about what needs to be considered when purchasing a website design, therefore they can be attracted to false services that will create false expectations and will not comply their needs.

    That's why in a second or third case, the clients realize they already have the necessary knowledge to seek and find a complete web design study that fills the requirements and plans developed by the project's owner.

    Important: Analyze the existing options ( quality, timeline and price), in first instance what may seem the best option ( price) may not be the appropriate one (it may cause you money and time waste) and you will not be satisfied with the results.

    Thanks a lot for your support, I've been too busy these days but when I start to think about ways to help in the WDF, I encourage myself to think about new words and thoughts, that's when I decide to start typing.


    Warm Regards

    The forum administration should really consider a way for us to index articles like this, perhaps in a forum specifically for tutorials, articles, etc. Right now they're kind of just thrown in with all of the questions, which can get chaotic for new users.

    I totally agree, it would encourage other users to post their opinions.

    Perhaps we should start a poll/topic about it in the general discussion forum? The best way to help the forum is get the opinion noticed after all :)

    Nice, do you want me to do it? or would you like to do it yourself?

    You can probably go ahead and do it, I'm gonna figure a little CSS problem out real fast for another member.

    Hey Geodun1

    I think we lost the horizon with our articles, do you think we can find a way to bring more people here and start more discussions? maybe if we contact Ian, he is the main Administrator, he could add a nice forum for us, that way everytime that a person wants to read interesting articles they can go to a section created for members like us.

    Let me know your thoughts
