Website Building: A Checklist for Digital Marketers

Your website is the face of your company. It’s the first interaction between you and your clients, and it’s often the only hub of company material that potential digital leads will see before making a decision about whether or not to do business with you. For these reasons and more, your website should reflect your company’s mission with as much clarity as possible to prompt leads to engage and build your contact list. 

How to Build a High Quality Website

Your plan for your website is the most essential element of the creation process—without a plan, your website won’t have any direction, and it won’t be successful. Below is a simple checklist for you and your team to reference throughout the website building process—whether at the beginning, middle, end—to help you inform or update your construction plan.
