We're WordPress Website Design Experts

WordPress is the most widely used content management system (CMS), powering more than 30% of all websites on the internet and over 60% of all websites that use a content management system. With a large number of available plug-ins and an easy-to-use administration, it’s not surprising WordPress is so popular. Many clients come to us already familiar with WordPress, so using it to power their website only makes sense, when applicable. Our WordPress website design services deliver a powerful website that’s aligned with your branding and business goals.

The first step we take with any new client is to determine which platform is best for your project. While WordPress is often a great fit, it’s not always the best option. We’ll walk you through the pros and cons of each possible CMS platform, helping you to make an informed decision. For example, if you’re looking for a powerful online store, using Shopify, or another eCommerce-specific platform might be best. WordPress does offer these capabilities through WooCommerce but also has limitations for enterprise businesses.

The most important factor when building a WordPress website is developing the site in a way that’s easy to manage. There are great WordPress websites and some that are very difficult to manage due to poor planning, development, and overuse of plug-ins. At OuterBox, we’re WordPress experts, meaning we have experienced WordPress developers in-house to create a WordPress website that’s both fast on the front-end and easy to manage on the back-end. Our WordPress websites land top scores with Google Core Web Vitals and produce conversion rates far above industry averages.

We're eCommerce Website Design Pros

Online sales are booming as US consumers will spend over $930 billion on eCommerce websites this year, up 18% year-over-year. Although this seems like an extremely high number, it’s still only 15% of total retail sales, meaning online sales still have a huge growth curve. While modern business and upstarts have made the transition, many traditional businesses have yet to do so, especially in the B2B space. At OuterBox, our website design services help to move your business forward, giving you the website technology needed to sell basic products online or complex custom services. We also specialize in ERP integrations, API data integrations, and other services needed for enterprise-level businesses.

How Investing in a High-End Website Helps Your Business

There’s a big difference between a professional website and lower-cost services, but how do professional website design services really impact your business? We all know it when we see it – a website that we land on and quickly hit the back button. A high-end website will not only be built to engage visitors but have a major impact on your search engine rankings, conversion rate, and more.

Website Design Services

Let’s review the main benefits of a professional website:

Engage Your Visitors & Increase Your Conversion Rate

Depending on your industry, the average conversion rate falls between 2-5%. Your conversion rate is the percentage of website visitors that convert into a lead or sale. Typical conversions include filling out an online form, visiting a store in-person, calling for a quote, or completing the checkout process. But did you know the top-performing websites’ average conversion rate is above 5%? If your website is built to be a top performer, you can double your business. If you want to maximize each visitor that comes to your website, developing a high-end website with engaging graphics and unique features is a must. Not only will your website stand out, decreasing your bounce rate, but you’ll be presenting your business in the most professional way possible. Remember, your website is the face of your business and the first impression for most of your potential customers. A website is a long-term investment, an asset you’ll have for years, and should be your best marketing tool and sales representative every single day.

Ranking at the top of Search Engines with SEO-Friendly Website Development

There are more than 5.6 billion searches on Google every day, so it goes without saying, being at the top of Google and other major search engines when your products and services are searched is a must if you want to grow your business. Did you know the top 3 organic results on Google get 75% of the clicks? This means if you’re not at the top, you’re losing out on a massive amount of potential customers. So, how do website design services impact your search engines rankings? SEO-friendly website development is an absolute must and one of the main factors often overlooked when heading into a website design project. During the design and development of your website, designers and coders are setting the foundation for how your website works and how it’s presented to the search engines. If they code pages incorrectly or don’t optimize the layout for search, no matter what you do in the future, or how much content you create, you’ll be penalized for poor site structure. The great part about working with OuterBox is we’re not only a web design company but also one of the nation’s leading SEO agencies. When we’re building a website our SEO team is involved from the beginning, making sure your website is built correctly. Our SEOs check all code, are involved in content creation and are heavily involved post-launch ensuring your website is being seen by Google in an optimal way.

SEO friendly website design services

Setting Up All of Your Marketing Channels for Success

No matter what marketing channel you’re using, offline advertising or digital marketing, you’re often driving people to your website. If your website isn’t the absolute best it can be, you’re ROAS (return on advertising spend) is lower across all channels. Your website needs to act as the main conversion funnel, turning your interested consumers into buyers. A great website will help you to maximize and see success across all of your advertising methods, allowing you to reinvest into growth.


How Much Do Website Design Services Cost?

Pricing a website design project is similar to pricing a home build. It comes down to how big the project is, what features you want, and how long it’ll take to do the job. The average website with OuterBox ranges between $10,000 – $50,000, but can exceed $100,000+ for large projects. Below are some of the main items that impact pricing:

  • Number of pages
  • Design styles (basic/clean, advanced/animations)
  • Amount of copywriting needed
  • eCommerce functionality
  • Platforms / CMS chosen
  • Data integrations / API integrations
  • SEO needs (more work needed during website redesigns)

When Is It Time To Redesign Your Website? 11 Signs Your Website Needs Updated

Justin Smith, CEO

When Is It Time To Redesign Your Website

It is hard to admit that your website is ugly or isn’t performing, But chances are if you’re reading this article you’re thinking it may be time to redesign your website.

Your digital baby, if you will, took hours of thought and development, you labored over color choices and photos, either paid exorbitant amounts of money to a designer, or slogged your way through books and webpages to do it yourself and all of it was fairly exhaustive.

The thought of starting this process over again can be daunting to anyone. However, having a website that misses the mark with visitors is not only a poor decision in regards to the aesthetic quality of your site but also is a poor decision in terms of conversion rate opportunities and overall ROI.

Pulling the trigger on a redesign is no easy process. However, if your site is not showing year-over-year growth then chances are that you are long overdue for an overhaul. The goal of any eCommerce website is to convert visitors into customers and if your site design and/or structure is a barrier in that, it needs to be fixed. Identifying the problems that hinder your site from being conducive to conversion and visitor engagement is an important step in the right direction. Much of this can be done by just deciding what isn’t working with your site and finding strategies for making it work and work well with your audience. Below are a few reasons why a redesign should become a priority for your company’s web presence and some negative effects you could face by not taking action now. If any of these statements are true about your site, consider a redesign to recapture your audience and remain relevant in today’s vast world of the internet.


Your Website Has a High Bounce Rate

If your website has a high bounce rate, it’s probably time to update it. Available to view in Google Analytics, bounce rate is the percentage of visitors that only visit a single page on your website during their session. While bounce rates vary, the average is about 40 to 55 percent, meaning that 40 to 55 out of every 100 website visitors only visit a single page during their session.

A high bounce rate usually indicates a poor user experience. If a visitor doesn’t have a positive experience when navigating and using your website, he or she may leave without visiting another page, causing your site’s bounce rate to increase.

Website That Needs Redesigned


Your Core Web Vitals Are Failing & It Loads Slow

Run your website through a speed tester like tools.pingdom.com or gtmetrix.com to see how quickly it loads. If it’s longer than three seconds, you should update your site to speed it up. One study found that nearly half of visitors abandon websites that don’t load in three seconds or less, while a separate study found that every additional second to a website’s load time resulted in 7 percent fewer conversions.

Google has also rolled our Core Web Vitals in Google Search Console that rates your website and scores each page. Google has incorporated these scores into their algorithm, so if you have bad scores it could be negatively impacting your search engine rankings. If your website can’t be found, it’s useless.

Redesign Your Website That Has Poor Page Experience

In the image above you’ll see before the website redesign Google Page Experience graded 0% of the URLs as “Good”. After the redesign, 88% of the URLs are “Good”. We also offer Google Core Web Vitals optimization services that can be performed at times without a site redesign.


Your Website Lacks Basic On-Page SEO

To rank your website on Google, Bing and other search engines for relevant queries, including your business’s brand name, you must perform on-page search engine optimization (SEO). Each page, for example, should have a unique title tag describing the page’s main focus. The title tag is an HTML element that’s displayed in browser tabs when the page is opened, but they are also used by search engines to create listings. You can customize the way your website is displayed on Google and Bing by creating unique title tags.

Other basic on-page SEO signals to look for when assessing your business’s website include:

  • Unique meta descriptions
  • A single H1 tag on each page consisting of the page’s title tag
  • Page URLs formatted with relevant keywords
  • Internal links to other pages
  • Images optimized with a relevant file name and alt text attribute

Your Website Content Is Out Of Date

Without fresh content, your website will struggle to attract and retain visitors. A study conducted by HubSpot found that businesses that created 16 new pages of content per month attracted more than three times the amount of traffic as businesses that created zero to four new pages of content per month.

Fresh content increases your site’s exposure in the search results, improves the overall quality of your site, and it compels visitors to return. To take advantage of these benefits, update your site by publishing three to four new pages of high-quality content per week.


It's Not Secured With HTTPS

The rise of online privacy breaches has led internet users to choose and use websites more cautiously than in the past. If a visitor doesn’t believe your website is secure, he or she may leave to ensure that their private information isn’t stolen or leaked.

To make visitors feel safe, your website should use the Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS). A type of encrypted network communication protocol, HTTPS scrambles data transmitted to and from your website to prevent unauthorized users from reading it. Using HTTPS will also give your site a secure padlock icon when viewed in the Chrome browser, whereas using HTTP will result in a “Not Secure” label.


It's Doesn't Function Properly on Mobile Devices

Statistics show that three in five of all internet users who visit a website do so from a mobile device. If your website doesn’t function properly on mobile devices, however, these users may abandon it.

You can update your website with a responsive design to make it compatible with mobile devices. Responsive design uses proportional units of measurement, rather than fixed, to achieve a dynamic layout that automatically adapts to the device on which it’s viewed.


Your Website Is Difficult to Navigate

From search rankings and bounce rate to conversions and user satisfaction, navigation can affect nearly every aspect of your website’s performance. When visiting your website for the first time, users should be able to easily find specific content. If it’s difficult or confusing to navigate, visitors won’t stay long, nor will they engage with your business.

Place yourself in the shoes of a typical visitor to your website and try to find a specific type of content by clicking navigation links. If you’re unable to easily find the content within just a few clicks of your mouse, or taps on your mobile device, update your site by improving its navigation.


It Contains Dead Links

Also known as broken links, dead links are detrimental to a website’s user experience. They look like ordinary links, but as both their names suggest, they don’t send visitors to the intended page when clicked. Rather, dead links send visitors to a 404 error page, which often results in them leaving the site.

The good news is that you don’t have to manually click every link on your website to see if they work. Just enter your website’s URL at brokenlinkcheck.com, and it will reveal whether it contains dead links. If you discover dead links, either remove them or modify them with the correct target URL.


It Doesn't Match Your Brand

If your website doesn’t match your brand, you need to update it. From the logo and header to the font and formatting, every element on your website must reflect your business’s brand. Otherwise, visitors won’t remember your business and what it offers.

Giving your website a complete makeover with a new brand-focused design is time-consuming, but it’s essential to creating a unique identity for your business. As visitors encounter your website, they’ll see brand elements, which they’ll subconsciously associate with your business.


It's Uses an Ineffective CTA

Your website should have a call to action (CTA) that tells visitors the next step they should take to engage with your business, and you should monitor the performance of this CTA to determine whether it needs adjusting.

Pay attention to the percentage of users who click your website’s CTA. Known as click-through rate (CTR), it reflects how well your CTA can grab visitors’ attention and compel them to click the linked text or image. If your CTA has a low CTR, 3 percent or less for most types of websites, update your website by experimenting with a different CTA. Changing the shape, color, text or placement of a CTA can all affect its performance.

A website is a powerful marketing tool that can help you connect with your business’s audience and nurture them into customers, but you need to update it regularly. If you notice any of the signs listed here, log in to your website and make the necessary changes. It will allow you to build a stronger and more effective online presence for your business.


Too Much Technical Troubleshooting

There is a major problem when instead of providing better customer support you spend time troubleshooting and serving as technical support. If you spend more time fixing technical aspects your site than you do optimizing it then it’s time to start looking into new hosting options, content management systems, shopping cart programs, or even the entire framework and navigation of your site. It can be exhaustive to continually have to look into error messages and field emails asking why a certain feature of your site doesn’t work as intuitively as it should. Also, if scalability was not a priority the first time you designed your site, then you might be having problems in the future with finding ways and places to put important product and company information. If your site does not have the ability to grow with content and pages then chances are that your profits and sales don’t have a favorable chance to grow either.
