How to Ensure a Stress-Free Website Launch

Your website is one of the most important aspects of your business. A website is a modern-day storefront. It’s one of the first things that customers see when they look for your business. A well-designed, user-friendly website builds confidence and loyalty behind your brand and turns clicks into committed customers. It also takes a lot of time and effort on your part before launch. We put together a pre-website launch checklist to help you prepare for a stress-free launch!

Your Stress-Free Website Launch

Content is error-free

Read through all copy on your website. Run copy through programs like Grammarly to ensure you don’t miss anything.

Save your old website

Web archiving services can store a copy of your old web pages. Or, you can download copies and save to the cloud.

Images are optimized & royalty-free

Check that your images are properly licensed or free-use. All images are correctly sized and of a high resolution.

Get the bugs out

Test, test, test! View on different devices and browsers. Play embedded videos and test links.

Set up your analytics

So you can track user engagement on the site immediately, see what’s resonating and what needs improvement.

Security checklist

Put passwords in a safe place, test the website’s cybersecurity and perform a technical audit on your website.

Choose your point of contact for form submissions

Don’t miss users contacting you and engaging with your site. Have a POC to collect and respond to form submissions.

Have a backup strategy

Make a final copy of your website and make sure backups are working properly.

Announce your new website launch

Have a launch strategy that includes announcing your new website on all social media platforms, email marketing, and newsletters.
