Do you get the jitters when you’re about to launch a website? Do you have that nagging fear that you’ve missed out on something crucial? Forgot that one crucial step which is going to be a source of embarrassment once you’ve put your website online? Fear not – we’re here to help. We’re going to make sure you’ve covered it all with our ultimate website review checklist.
Not only when launching a website should you be performing a website review though. If I had to take a wild guess on one of the main reasons for the existence of your website – I’ll guess it’s to get you more sales. Whether it’s through direct selling of products through an online store or direct downloads, or as a way of pushing your services, your website must be serving its purpose.
Let’s start with our website review checklist.
Ok so you’ve just been approached by a client to design their website – good stuff! Well done on winning your next website design job! One of your first jobs is crucial to the success of the website design project – understanding the client’s need through a website design questionnaire.
Essentially, we need to manage to put ourselves in the thought processes of our client. Only by fully understanding their problems, fears, clients, goals, strengths, weaknesses, target demographics, products, services, competitors, unique selling points, brand, budget and so many other things can we ensure that this website design project is a success.
This is the purpose of the website design questionnaire. It asks the necessary pertinent questions to dig deeply into your client’s brains. It triggers the right emotions to get your client to open up and explain to you what you need to understand.
If you’ve already seen our 128 task website checklist, you know we like doing a great job with these checklist 😉
So without further ado – let’s get right into it!

If you’re looking to setup a WordPress website, you know there are quite a few steps which you need to perform. If you’ve got a number of projects going on simultaneously, you might easily get overwhelmed with the number of things which you’ll need to think about in order to have all bases covered.
That’s why we’ve written the Ultimate WordPress Checklist for setting up and launching a website!
When we were in the phases of doing market research for BeeWits, we came across LaunchList.net. As an application which monitors your website launch checklist we believed that LaunchList was a competitor of ours. However, it has been recently announced that LaunchList is closing down. Good news though! BeeWits can be your LaunchList alternative.
A few months back, Richard Muscat Azzopardi, a co-worker I knew from a previous job, approached me with an interesting proposal. Whilst setting up Switch Digital Ltd – a digital marketing agency – he ran into a few organizational problems.
Of course, like we all do, he turned online to look for a solution for his nagging issues – and was surprised to find there seemed to be no software solutions to address these problems.
As an experienced Product Manager, Richard offered me the opportunity to build a solution for these problems for Switch Digital, and of course in the process, build it for the rest of the world.
This is part of our story.
Whilst developing BeeWits, which is about to start inviting users for our Early Access program, we learned quite a few things. Here’s what we learnt. The good stuff. And the times where we might have fucked up.
As a freelancer with little experience and few clients, your hardest job is going to be finding work to maintain a steady income stream from your freelancer jobs. There’s good news though:
69% of freelancers said technology has made it easier to find freelancer jobs
Up to a few years ago, freelancing was limited to those people who were able to either make a name for themselves through the grapevine, or who splurged on the yellow pages. Today, technology and freelancing jobs sites have made it much easier to find freelance jobs online.
Pitching yourself on as many freelancer sites as possible, will ensure that you get as much exposure as you can possibly get. Here’s a list of sites where you can get more freelance work.
With well over 53 million freelancers in the US alone, more and more professionals are opting to take their valuable skills and leave the daily grind to work for themselves.
Many of those launching their own self-employed careers are doing so with newly formed skills as developers, designers, marketers, and writers. What’s more is that there are over 681,059 available jobs right now in the tech space—and many of them are remote or contract positions. Companies are starting to recognize that it’s often more affordable to hire out to contractors for top talent.
Presenting your work in a visually appealing manner is not just important – it should be your number 1 rule in your design bible.
It’s the aesthetics more than anything else which draws people in. So if you want to showcase what you’ve achieved, what better way than to place it within a beautiful mock up?
