Make Sure Your Site Is Ready For Launch

Make Sure Your Site Is Ready For Launch


Now that you have poured all your time and energy into designing your website, it is now time to go back and review it before launch. Remember, just like a report or project you need to work out all the kinks before you even think about putting it online. When going back over your site, here are a few things to keep in mind.

Text and Grammar

The worst thing you possibly could do is have poor grammar on your website. Make sure that all of your text is spelled correctly and that it makes sense. Nothing is more unprofessional than misspelled words. Also be sure that all of your text is internet ready, meaning that it is optimized for internet readers. Keep in mind that most people when surfing your page want simple to read straight to the point text.


Another important aspect to remember is the speed of your page. Before you launch your site make sure to test out its speed and make sure that it does not take too long to load your pages. The longer it takes to load, the more people are going to leave your site before they even see it. It is also important to note that there still many internet users with dial-up modems.


When testing out your website remember to make sure that all the links are in working order. It can be very frustrating to customers when a page that they wish to see is unavailable due to a broken link. Also be sure to check all of the links that navigate away from your website. Aside from working links, make sure that your website is compatible with popular browsers and screen resolutions.


While you may know now how to get around your site because you designed it, can others also figure out how to get around it? A poorly designed site that is difficult to navigate can be a huge turn-off to your customers. Not only is it frustrating, but can become so confusing that the only option is to leave the site. Make sure to test your site on others before you launch it online.

While reviewing your website should be a much more in-depth process than what I just went over, the basic idea is still the same. Make sure that your website is the best that it can be before you even think about getting it online. Not only is it easier to fix now, you do not want to lose potential customers due to a studied mistake.
