You don’t have to surf the web for long to discover there’s an awful lot of websites that are in dire need of a redesign. Some are simply dull, while others will make you cringe. There also those that feature color choices that were popular back in the 70s. Too many seem to have been designed by people who believed the less white space there is, the better.

You may have had opportunities to refresh an out-of-date looking website. You no doubt felt good about it in spite of the fact that rebranding can be hard and very time-consuming.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Pre-built websites present an opportunity to refresh any website’s look in just a few hours. Be Theme has more than 350 of them to work with.

Let’s check out a few examples and see how you can do yourself or your clients a huge favor in a short time.

Express Redesign #2: Refresh the Color Scheme

This is one of the most impactful ways to refresh a website’s look, and also one of the easiest. More importantly, you can not only change the look of the website but radically switch the “feel” as well. A website that looks and feels friendlier is a website that can help a business reach its online goals.

Using a pre-built website takes this visual change to the next level. Be Theme’s templates cover more than 30 different industries. Thus, you can rest assured that your new color scheme will follow the latest trends.

Express Redesign #4: Add Large, Stunning Visuals

Adding beautiful images to your homepage does not take a lot of time. One large, eye-catching image is all it takes to refresh the entire look of a website.

Take BeDigital, for example. This 3D still is so fascinating, it’s impossible to ignore.

Building a customer-centric eCommerce shop can take a lot of work. Especially so when thousands of other online stores are selling similar products. Customers gravitate toward stores that make their shopping experience smooth and intuitive. Consequently, every little detail has to work like a well-oiled machine.

Why work hard to avoid potentially costly little errors? You can work from a pre-built website that already follows eCommerce rules? It takes but a few hours to customize an online shop to fit your needs or those of your client’s. With these, you can ensure your customers will enjoy a hassle-free shopping experience.
