3r3144.  3r3179. Focusing only on general feelings when planning a redesign is not worth it. If you think that the site could be better, this does not mean that you need to do something with it. It may well suit users and show good results from a business point of view. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. You can understand the need for redesign by analyzing a number of factors. Does the site look modern? Does the conversion drop over time? Do users and customers complain about a bad interface or inconvenience caused by the current design? 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. In addition to the appearance and related issues, it is worth analyzing the infrastructure: do the site use modern technologies, do updates for them, do they support the development of the mobile version of the resource, etc. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. If the answers to some of these questions are negative, then a redesign is necessary. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3142. Step # 2: Set goals and start tests on the old 3r3143 design. 3r3144.  3r3179. The next important step is to understand what the company wants to achieve with the help of the redesign. Since we are talking about websites for business, you need to use metrics that affect it: traffic, conversion, retention of users, etc. To understand which indicators for the new version of the site will be realistic, you first need to analyze the figures of the current version of the site. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. If you know what traffic you currently have, how it is converted, then you can set goals to increase traffic and increase sales through the site, which will not be taken from the ceiling. Conventionally, if your old site is in the first position in the search results for targeted queries, then it is logical to demand the same from the new version of the site. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. A /B testing helps to deal with the setting of feasible goals. Even before the development of a new design, on the old site, you can change some things and see what is changing in the behavior of users. If instead of a form on the main button, the button works better, then there is a chance that in a new and modern design this will allow raising the conversion even higher. The absence of such tests can lead to the fact that the obviously unsuccessful solutions will be included in the redesign. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. A classic example of such an error is the redesign of the 37signals project. The company decided to change its name to Basecamp - this is the name of its most popular product. In addition, the developers made changes to the main page of the site. Previously, it was located registration form: 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3355. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. After redesign, it was removed:
 3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. , the company has missed millions of dollars in revenue. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3142. Step # 3: explore the competition and understand that you can borrow
3r3144.  3r3179. Competitive analysis is very important. Studying the sites of companies from your industry and comparing them with the position of each of them in the market will help to understand what is really important for customers. For example, such an analysis can lead to interesting conclusions: for example, it may easily turn out that the most fashionable and stuffed with modern effects sites belong to companies that barely make ends meet, and calmer resources bring much more profit. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. It is important to borrow only those moments about which you understand what stands behind them, why it works for an audience similar to yours. You should not change the whole approach to business too seriously just because someone has succeeded. An example of what this may lead to is a redesign of the Digg.com service in the early 2010s, which is considered to be 3r33838. one of the worst in the history of the Internet
. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. The project management was inspired by the successes of social networks like Twitter and Facebook, and also decided to add more sociality to its, initially, service aggregator of interesting content. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r33939. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. The users didn’t like the innovations - the traffic from the USA dropped by 26%, and from the UK - by 34%. Fell down and all other activity metrics of the audience, which Digg was famous for earlier. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3142. Step # 4: Give people a choice of
3r3144.  3r3179. Often, company executives believe that they weighed everything and made the best decision for users. In practice, it may turn out that people do not agree at all with this point of view. Users may not like the new design, there may be many reasons. From a business point of view, it may be necessary. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. In such a situation, discontent may arise. It happened, for example, when redesigning "Kinopoisk". The Yandex service who bought it made a redesign that, as it seemed to many users, completely killed the idea of ​​the service. The encyclopedic structure of the site was broken, for which he was loved - for example, people could find films similar to their favorite pictures, and information about actors and directors. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3114. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. As a result, a big scandal arose, the company was forced to rework the new design, and then remove it altogether into a separate 3r3119. subdomain 3r3165. where he lives still. On the main domain, the design remained visually obsolete, but very much loved by users:
 3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. Even after performing all the steps described in the article, the work on the redesign should not end. You will need to interact daily with users, evaluate their behavior and interactions with the new interfaces. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. Perhaps, some solutions that seemed successful will have to be quickly reviewed, somewhere to change the texts or design on specific pages that were not clear to users. This is a normal process, and this work needs to be prepared. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3144.  3r3179. 3r3142.
