This is how the old site looked. The navigation was all over the place and you never really knew where you were within the site. In addition, the images we tiny and hard to see. It was in short, very old and out dated. They really need to bring the site up to date and make it more user friendly.
These are some screen shots of the new redesign of the site Hot Tub Parts. The company want some quick links at the top to the most popular areas of the site which I placed on the front page at the top. In addition in the traditional area for navigation (right under the banner) I didn’t place the navigation for the store, If I had it would have been to cumbersome to keep clean and user friendly.
Instead I placed account, cart and buying guides there, and opted for a side navigation drop down menu. This allowed for more sections to be displayed when the user needed it and somewhat hidden when the user didn’t need it.
Overall, the site is now more modern, clean and user friendly than before. There are other features I’d like to add to the site later and more SEO needs to be done on each product like better descriptions.
