In this day and age, a website for your brand or business is a must. It’s a powerful tool that can help you grow your business.
It can help you attract new leads, which in turn, can generate income for you. It can even automate various processes, so you can grow your business with ease.
Only problem is, building a website isn’t exactly easy. Don’t believe gurus who claim you can launch your website in 10 or 20 minutes.
Technically? Sure. But strategically? Nope, far from it.
So, how do you make your website launch easy, effortless and rewarding? Well, you need a website launch checklist.

Here’s the video’s content in a nutshell:
Step 1: Develop a strategic website success plan
Just like most things in life, you also need a website success plan if you want to succeed online. Planning is hard, but building a website without a plan is even harder.
That said, to make your website planning 10x easier, download my free Website Success Plan.
Here’s a screenshot:
As you can see, your success framework begins with you identifying 3 major goals, namely:
- Business goals
- Marketing goals
- Website goals
Remember, this stage is the most important part of the whole process.
Take your time to brainstorm and fill out the form with your goals. It will dictate how successful (or not) your website launch is going to be.
Step 2: Wireframe your website
What do you want your website to look like? Instead of visualizing your site’s design in your mind’s eye, use pen and paper instead.
Or an iPad, like you see in the screenshot below:
Wireframing will help you plan out your site’s overall structure and design. You can decide what to put on the homepage, product pages, blog, etc. You can also think about how your visitor will interact with your site.
For example, where do you put your call-to-action buttons? And what happens when people click on it? And so on.
Do these wireframes before you start coding the site, or install any templates or plugins.
This process may take up a significant amount of time in the beginning. But in the long run, I guarantee this will save you so much time and frustration.
Step 3: Write web copy
Quite honestly (and I’m not saying this to scare you off), this is the hardest part of the whole website launch process.
Writing good copy takes TIME to plan and write. You’d need to write copy for your homepage, about page, product pages, testimonials, blog content, etc.
Once you’ve finished writing the copy (or outsourced it, for that matter), only then can you actually go forward with the actual site building.
A website launch checklist will help you create, build and launch a website that you can be proud of. Download the “Website Success Plan” now. I promise it will make the whole website creation process 10x easier!
