Today I am launching a new site. This is always exciting. ?
Despite having done this thousands of times I still make a checklist for every project launch. Writing it out gets the process in my head and helps me stay focused.
Pushing a site from production to live is not hard, but it has a lot of opportunities to go wrong.
That is why I keep it as simple as possible. I analyze the entire situation instead of using the same plan I used for a different site.
Content, servers, and traffic are always different so every launch comes with some unique challenges.
Having my launch list as I go through the process keeps me calm if something goes wrong and also keeps me from forgetting a small step that could cause major issues down the line.
