Why is a website launch checklist important?

I remember when I launched my first website. I spent so long tinkering with random details behind the scenes before going live, but I had no idea what I was doing. I spent way too long choosing the right WordPress theme and picking out the perfect little favicon to show up in the browser tab.

We all want everything to be just right on our website before people see it, but which details are actually going to be worth it? If you don’t know what to do before you launch your site, you’ll end up wasting your time on meaningless things like I did. The problem is, figuring out exactly what you need to do before launching. You might have a ton of questions about which things are important:

  • Is my site SEO friendly?
  • Should I be spending more effort on the design?
  • How can I make sure this site can generate revenue?

To figure out the most important details of your website launch and make sure everything is good to go, use our free website launch checklist.

What’s in this checklist?

Our checklist has a list of elements you will want to have, or make sure are done before publishing your website. Some of these key elements are:
