Launching a brand new website can be scary. There’s a lot to remember and sometimes you aren’t sure if you’ve covered all of your bases to ensure a smooth transition. Fear not! Showit is here to help with this quick and easy checklist containing 7 things you don’t want to forget when launching your beautiful, new Showit site.
Showit is the only platform that gives you the ability to create a 100% custom mobile site. Before launching, be sure to take advantage of this feature to create a site built specifically for your mobile users.
Check and double-check your site design! Send the preview link (you can generate a site preview link by clicking the “online preview” button in the upper right corner of the Showit application) to friends and have them test the site out. Click on all of your links and try scaling your browser to different sizes to see how the site looks in various situations. If things are moving when you don't want them to, you may need to adjust the edge-locking.
Don’t forget to setup a contact form so that your potential clients can easily get ahold of you! Once you set it up, be sure to test it and verify that the emails are being delivered to you from both desktop and mobile.
Figuring out SEO can be overwhelming when launching a brand new site. However, with a little bit of reading and a few tweaks to your Showit site, you can quickly and easily start off on the right foot. Here are a few resources to help you get going:
Google Analytics is a free tool that allows you to track visitors to your website. It is an extremely powerful tool that helps you learn the behavior of your potential customers. You’ll want to get this setup as soon as possible!
