After the website launch

fireworks_small.jpg

After you’ve built and launched your new website, the work is just beginning. Be sure to follow the suggestions in this great article, “?Things You Should Do Immediately After Launching a Website“.

Not exactly sure about the DMOZ recommendation – I’ll need to look into that one – but everything else is highly recommended.

What the article doesn’t mention, is your social media strategy. After launch, the next two things I do are:

1. Create a Facebook page.

2. Create a Twitter account.

How about you? Are there any other checklist items you do post-launch?

    I think that’s a great article . . . for a business, but those SEO things mean very little (if anything) to a Church website. This is the biggest issue I see holding Churches back in regards to internet tools. We approach it from the things being ingrained in us when talking internet . . . SEO, marketing, etc. All those business-building types of things.

    When it comes to a local parish community, the website should serve a functional role as an extension of the office for the community. SEO doesn’t matter because those who need the website will have it as it should be on every communication such as the bulletin. Listing on Google Places, Yahoo Local Directory, and Bing’s Local Directory is important though since those services are where people go to look up local places.

    In my opinion, it’s more important to approach building a website for parish looking at the parish community first. What services and functions do you want it to provide to them?
