Launching a new Drupal website is exciting and can be a little risky if you aren’t careful. There are several things to accomplish, details that are too essential to overlook, and many people collaborating to make the deployment go smoothly.
Earlier this year, Mediacurrent launched a new Drupal 7, mobile responsive website. We followed all (and many more) of the tips we list in our new ebook. Even though it took ton of manpower, we’re seeing the fruits of our labor by already experiencing double the amount of unique page views, lower bounce rates, and higher conversion rates.
In this new eBook, we'll give you a checklist of things you should review before your Drupal website launches, like:
- Spelling, Grammar, Punctuation
- Web Forms
- Live URLs
- Title Tags/Meta Data
- Site speed
- Mapping old pages to new
- Fonts & Images
- Social Media Integration
- Stress Testing
- and more!
Launching your website is just the beginning. You should continue to iterate based on how your site is performing on analytics and customer feedback. Hopefully you can see that everyone on a marketing and web team can be assigned tasks to test leading up to a site launch—even if they aren't a developer. The Mediacurrent team is here to help as well!
P.S. If you are just starting to prepare for a Drupal website redesign, we have a great guide for that too.
