your site is finished.

now what?

we don't just like building our clients sites, we like setting them up for long-term success.

Your website is ready to go into the wild and we’re all excited to launch.

But before we do,  there’s a couple of things to consider.

After all, you’ve invested time and resources into creating the best website possible and it has to work for you, your business, and your customers.

And with today’s web space as competitive as it is, there’s a few considerations we need to think about to make sure it’s working optimally.

considerations

Your Expertise

How much expertise do you have with websites? WordPress? Servers? If you have a lot, then managing your site should be pretty simple from month-to-month. If you don’t then it will either take an investment in time to learn what you need to do or take you passing off the work to someone else.

Your Capacity

A website that actually works for your business is never a “set-it-and-forget-it” thing, no matter how much other companies will try and tell you. Why? Because the internet (and your customers on it) are a constantly changing landscape.

In order to get the most from your website, you have to be aware and adapt, or you will be beaten out by someone who is.

Ask yourself, how much time do you have each month to spend maintaining and updating your website your website? Is it the best use of your time?

Your Priorities

As someone who manages a business, what are your priorities and where does managing your digital and web presence come into that?

If you’re a technically strong marketing manager, keeping your site up to snuff probably isn’t a big deal and it likely falls under your core priorities. If you’re a creative entrepreneur who is better focused looking at the big picture, then it likely isn’t a priority for you.

Your Goals

Finally, what are the goals of your business and how does your website fall into those? If one of your main goals is to grow your customer base digitally, then prioritizing your website is a must. If you’re predominately a brick-and-mortar store that just needs a website for customers to find you, your time and cash might be better spent elsewhere.

A Secure Sockets Layer certificate (SSL certificate) is a small data file installed on your website that allows for a secure connection between the server and your web browser.

The primary reason why SSL is used is to keep sensitive information sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the intended recipient can access it. This is important because the information you send on the Internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. Any computer in between you and the server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate.

A content delivery network (CDN) refers to a geographically distributed group of servers which work together to provide fast delivery of Internet content. A CDN allows for the quick transfer of assets needed for loading Internet content including HTML pages, javascript files, stylesheets, images, and videos. The popularity of CDN services continues to grow, and today the majority of web traffic is served through CDNs, including traffic from major sites like Facebook, Netflix, and Amazon.
