Ways to Prep Up Your Website This 2019

2019 is here, and there’s no better way to start the year with a bang than making sure your website is up and running smoothly on day one. This means doing tasks ranging from checking if the site is up-to-date to inspect if it’s displaying accurate information that’s not too hard and confusing for readers and prospective clients to understand. For your convenience, some of the most common ways you can reviewing and update your website are listed below. Stick around and check them out!

Revamp the About Me Page

Begin by changing your profile photo; 2019 is just kicking off, so it’s the perfect time to replace it!. Then make amendments and additions to your professional credentials, certifications, and recommendations as well as to your writing gigs and speaking events. If possible, add new elements that provide social proof of the companies you’ve previously worked with along with their testimonials about you. And give your readers new press (i.e., articles, videos, and podcasts).

Update the Work With Me Page

Next, you need to make updates on your prices and offers this 2019 if you want other reputable bloggers and businesses to work with you. Say you specialize in web design in the Philippines. If you want to increase the chances of your website becoming successful this year, then you need to make sure it’s both local and up-to-date. Some of the things you can do to get this done include updating your site’s privacy policy as well as its terms and conditions, raising your fees and editing your copy and buy-now buttons, and removing any packages and promos that you’re not offering anymore. Just make sure your Work With Me page only shows things you’re willing to get hired to work on again.

Make Other General Checkups and Updates in the Website

Many things can change within one year. Just think of those people who whimsically changed their Facebook page names without thinking about the repercussions it would have on their links! If you’ve also made changes to your website in the previous year, then it’s time to upgrade it so that the links connected to it would remain operational. Start by making a wait list for promos and programs you’re planning to run this 2019 and updating the pop-ups and opt-ins you’ll use to promote it. Then proceed with testing your contact and newsletter sign-up forms to make sure it’s working correctly. Lastly, double-check your website’s links to your social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) to see if it’s still live.

Check What’s Beyond the Website

Lastly, you need to make sure that the external elements linked to your website are also up to date and functional. These include your social media networks, links to your new sites, and your email signature. Create new links and pages for your website, make all the necessary updates to those you still want to retain, and delete those you don’t need or want anymore.

Wrapping Up

2019 is a year full of exciting possibilities for bloggers and entrepreneurs everywhere. By making sure that your website is all prepped up for it, you’ll be able to take advantage of this year better and seize as many wonderful opportunities as you could that would take you many steps closer to success.
