The website redesign.

It is often the big money ticket for a business; the project upon which a lot of faith is placed, and improved numbers are expected across the board.

Ideally, it is expected to provide a significant improvement in sales and leads figures, based on a modern, seamless and intuitive experience for the visitors that is future-proofed for the constantly changing marketplace.

Unfortunately, the numbers from PRWD’s survey show that this is not always the case. In fact, a few businesses even find a decline in sales after undergoing website redesign.

So if you’re currently in the middle of a website redesign (or planning one in the near future), have a quick look at the infographic below.

Following on from PRWD’s last infographic on the effectiveness of website traffic acquisition strategies, this infographic provides insight into why a website redesign for many of the UK’s biggest businesses don’t provide a jump in sales and leads.

At the end of the infographic, there are key takeaways that can help you get the most out of a website redesign.
