A Makeover for Bigg Success

paintIf you’re one of our regulars, you probably immediately noticed our new look. With the help of the great people at Headway, we’ve gotten a makeover!

georgeMost people may not be surprised to hear me say this, but I’ve never had a makeover, Mary-Lynn.

marylynnYou’ve never gone to the make-up counter for the “before” and “after” thing, huh?

Oh, well now that you put it that way!

marylynnWell, I’ve certainly had my share of makeovers. From long hair to short. Back to long. Then to medium length hair.

Planned remodeling

In the retail business, there’s an unwritten rule that you should remodel your store about every seven years.

Your web site is your online storefront whether you’re in the retail business or not. There's a rule of thumb in web design that you should update your site every two years.

Whereas you might spend tens of thousands of dollars to remodel your bricks-and-mortar store, it costs relatively little to give your virtual store a makeover.

You don’t have to make drastic changes. You can add new tools or highlight things in which your site visitors might be particularly interested.

For instance, do you have a great resource page? Is it highly visible on your home page?

Do you publish a newsletter? Is it easy for your visitors to sign up?

Why the change?

We’re almost at the two year mark so we felt it was time to remodel. The look is different but the overall feel is not.

Another reason is that more people are accessing our site via mobile devices. Our old design wasn’t very friendly to these devices. You had to scroll through a lot of extraneous information to get to our post for the day.

Thanks to our graphic designer, Liz McMillen, we have an updated logo. It incorporates our tagline – Life on Your Own Terms – into Bigg Success.

Making Headway our Theme

We also had planned to upgrade to a premium WordPress Theme anyway. Our friends at Headway came out with their fantastic product at just the right time. (In the interest of full disclosure, we are now an affiliate of Headway.)

We do business with people we know and trust. Grant and Clay Griffiths certainly fit that description. They’ve done a great job with Headway and we expect it to be a bigg success.

Other people we know and respect are using the template too. There’s nothing like social proof! Chris Cree, Michael Martine – a.k.a. Remarkablogger – and John Haydon are all using Headway now for their blogs.

Headway makes it easy make updates to any site as it continues to evolve. It is easy to customize without having to know code. That’s a bigg time saver for any business owner looking to upgrade his or her site.

They have a great support forum that is both informative and robust. Clay and other Headway users do a great job of responding to technical and design questions.

Your thoughts?
Check out the “before” if you want and compare it to now. We'd love to hear your thoughts on the new design.

Do you like it? Any suggestions?
