This post briefly touches on a number of items from our monthly checklist that we use for our regular clients. These methods will help you convert more users into customers, gain more positive brand experiences, and help you rank better in search engines.
In most cases all of these techniques have been proven to have a positive effect, however I advise you to always test in order to determine whether the change has the same positive effect on your business as it varies.
Use this as your pre-launch checklist and contribute to it in the comments at the end of this post – I will update the post with more techniques as we research and test them.
I hope you enjoy it.

Let me start off by building up my credibility in analytics. For the past 5 years, I’ve spent several hours a day reviewing website traffic for over 50 different websites. Out of those 50 sites, 8 of them are our personal businesses.
I'd like to jump right into the fun stuff, however we have to learn the basics first. Let’s start off by understanding what bounce rates are and what it means to have a high or low bounce rate.
