You’ve got a website. But how do you know if it’s good enough to show off? Use this Web Design Checklist to evaluate your site’s performance.
Is it mobile friendly?
If you’re looking at a desktop version of your site, make sure it looks good on a smartphone as well. Mobile users expect sites to load quickly and easily, so make sure your site loads fast on both devices.
Does it load fast?
A mobile-friendly site also makes it easier for people to share your content with friends and family. It’s easy to share links to articles and other web pages via social media, email, text messages, and more.

Are the images optimized?
Images are an essential part of any website, but not every image needs to be optimized. In fact, there are some cases where using low quality images can actually improve performance. If you’re unsure whether or not your images need optimization, use Google Image Search to see how well your images perform.
Do you have a contact form?
A contact form is one of the easiest ways to communicate with visitors. It’s also a great way to collect leads and build relationships with potential customers. However, it’s easy to overlook when building a new website. Make sure it has a Honeypot and maybe google recaptcha to block spam!
Have you added social media sharing buttons?
If you’re not using social media sharing buttons, you’re leaving money on the table. Social media shares are an effective way to spread the word about your business and attract more people to your site. They also provide another opportunity to connect with your audience.
