ONBOARDING
Do we ever get it perfected? Sometimes I think so, and then scope gets out of control. Other times, it's a matter of expectations, and really defining that. Here's a really good article about onboard, though I do believe KNOW OUR CLIENT/CUSTOMERS is number one priority.

Use the word FRAMEWORK vs PROCESS
Especially if you are doing despoke work, here's a fantastic blog post, within the scope of Wordpress, but worthwhile on business process for any business. How do you design flexible frameworks? Here's some brainstorming. Communication is teamwork, and you need to hear that internally. Check this link: https://www.wpelevation.com/2017/09/specialising-finding-niche-karim-marucchi/

.#BINSPIREDTO - It's on today in #the6ix, a celebration of B Corps, and a way to learn more about them. There's talks at Massey Hall (need a ticket), and a street fest. Still fairly new to Canada, but certainly the way to the future, we just need government to recognize and incentivize this concept of Businesses who care. This IS the future!
Free Street Fest:
Yonge-Dundas Square
1 Dundas St E, Toronto, ON M5B 2R8
4 PM - 9 PM

Part One: quick checklist to audit your own website. Easy read. #dueDiligence
10 Quick Tips to Audit Your WordPress Website (Part 1)

When was the last time you took a hard look at your website from a first time visitor's point of view? We want to challenge you to walk through each page of your site this week as if you have never seen your site before, identify all the issues you find, and then fix them.

Here are a few questions to ask yourself as you conduct the walk through:

1) Can you tell what your company does simply by looking at one of your inside pages?
Your visitors may enter through a page other than your website's home page.

2) Did the site load fast? Did all of the images load?
According to Adobe, 39% of people will stop engaging with a website if the images won't load or take too long to load.

3) Is your logo linked to your homepage?
According to KoMarketing, once a visitor lands on a business web page via a referring site, 36% of them will click the logo to reach the homepage.

4) Does your menu provide a good overview of your website?
According to KoMarketing, once a visitor lands on a business web page via a referring site, 50% will use the navigation menu to orient themselves.

5) Is your website/navigation easy to use?
Here are some common things that visitors are looking for and should be able to easily find it from any page of your website:

- Your company's products/services page.
- Your company's contact information.
- Your "about us" page.

Check back tomorrow for five more quick tips to audit your website in part 2 of this post!

We would love to hear from some of the experts in our audience with additional tips or advice ... and if you do conduct an audit of your site, let us know what you uncovered!

10 Quick Tips to Audit Your WordPress Website (Part 2)

When was the last time you took a hard look at your website from a first time visitor's point of view? Yesterday, we challenged you to walk through each page of your site this week as if you have never seen your site before, identify all the issues you find, and then fix them.

Here are five more questions to ask yourself as you conduct the walk through:

6) Did you feel compelled to follow your calls to action? Why or why not?
If you do not have calls to action, make a note of where they need to be added. Also, make notes of what could be improved about your existing ones.

7) Is your contact info easy to find?
Your company's contact information is of critical importance on your website; in fact, according to KoMarketing, 44% of a website visitors will leave if there's no contact information or phone number.

8) Does your website look modern, professional, and pleasing to the eye?
According to Adobe, if your website's content and layout are unattractive, 38% of people will stop engaging with it.

9) Does everything work as it should?
Of course, your buttons, links, forms, scrolls, hovers, swipes, print view, search, etc. should all work.

10) Is the website's design responsive?
According to comScore, between December 2013 and December 2015, tablet internet consumption grew by 30%; smartphone internet consumption grew by 78%, and, desktop internet consumption dropped by 1%.

In addition to the questions above, be sure that your content is well written, free of spelling errors, up-to-date, concise, on topic, etc.

We would love to hear from some of the experts in our audience with additional tips or advice ... and if you do conduct an audit of your site, let us know what you uncovered!
