Launching a new website is both exciting and can be nerve racking for web design companies and clients. If you make sure you follow some simple guidelines it will be smooth sailing ⛴. Benjamin Marc has been in business since 2005 and still till this day we follow the same protocol when launching a website to make sure it is done properly. Im sure there is more than 10 things you need to do before launching a website but here are some of the basics.

1- Make sure you launch your website with a reputable web hosting company. This is essential because a one of the key factors to a good website is speed. If a website runs slow it could be coming from the web host. We recommend Flywheel, they are a highly reputable web hosting company with great customer service.

2- Dead Links. Make sure all of your links go to pages or images. Search engines do not tolerate dead links.

3- Contact phone numbers. Test all phone numbers to make sure they are correct. It is very easy to make a mistake when it comes to phone numbers and this can result in lost customers.

4- Test your phone number on mobile. Make a test call on your website from your phone making sure it goes through.

5- Check the content. Check for grammar, punctuation and the overall flow of your content.

7- E-commerce Web Design. If you are selling products or services on your website you should do several test purchases. We always do a bulk purchase of all products making sure the sale goes through successfully. You can always do a refund after it is tested.

8- SSL Certificate. You website must be secure. This is a simple addition and very inexpensive. If you don’t have an SSL, certain browsers will be flag your website for being non secure.

9- Check all contact forms and email. If your website has a contact form be sure to test it making sure you received the email.

10- Submit the website to all search engines. Make sure you set up your sitemap and submit your website to all the major search engines for crawling and indexing.
