Here’s the thing: businesses evolve and grow. Mine has (and so will yours). And what worked a few years ago for my website is no longer reflective of where I am today.
If you know it’s time for a website revamp, let this serve as your roadmap of sorts. While you may make different decisions than I did, the overall message you should take away is the same: You need to be intentional and strategic about every part of your site.
For example, deciding what to feature on the homepage will influence so many other things like navigation, the sitemap, overall user experience, and ultimately, conversions.

Part 2—The Map: Why you have to plot out every page (and I walk you through why my homepage is laid out the way it is).
Part 3—The Miscues: My five biggest flops, like not including my team in the process. Yeah. Smooth move, Amy.
Part 4—Your Decision: Find out the elements my designer, Jessica, says you must have for success.
