Planning your website launch or redesign can seem like a taxing job but the hard work really begins when the website is live. Promoting your website and building up traffic can be difficult so I have put together a checklist of things to consider for when your website goes live. The article is split in two sections – things that need to be done while the website is in development and things to do after it has gone live:

While the website is in development:

1. Make a plan for your website to fulfil its objectives

Outlining the objectives of your website is likely to be something you did before you even took your project to a design agency, if not now is the perfect time to list the purpose of your website and what goals you hope to achieve.

Whether you want to bring attention to your writing, increase sales or publicise your clients, it is important to think about how you want to achieve these goals. Once the website is live it needs an investment of time and thought in order for it to succeed and provide any results. So before your website goes live make sure you think about how you will use it to work for you and provide a positive ROI.
