Whether you are ready to launch your EngagementHQ for the first time or you are about to go live with a new project, there are certain steps you need to consider for a smooth lift-off.
Pressing that launch button and going live is an exciting time. Ideally, you have spent a good amount of time planning your consultations, now it's time to execute your strategy. Here is a checklist for your site launch:
Think about SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). Read this article for an SEO-specific checklist.
Publish your project(s). Review our Checklist for Project Publishing for the project-specific checklist.
Design your homepage. It is critical that you pay attention to your landing page (homepage). Make sure that it looks good and makes sense. Ensure that all images you use are high in quality but low in file size.
Do one of these two: Press your 'launch site' button (image below). This button can be found at the top of the Site Setting page. Clicking on it will launch the site. That means the search engines will pick it up, the public will be able to access your site and register. OR
You can manually enable the site lock via Site Settings. In some cases, for different reasons, this button may have been clicked earlier and you would have most likely enabled the site lock. If so, simply remove the site lock in your site settings.
Often EngagementHQ admins want to give colleagues or other stakeholders a sneak peek before going live. Read our article on how to preview the project for detailed instructions on how this can be done. You can also read the article on share a draft project link to understand how a non-admin can review a draft project.
Note: Your sign-up form/register page will be available after you launch your site.
