After your site goes live, you may think you that’s all you need, but there other important steps required to insure a successful online presence! To make the most of all the hard work that everyone put into creating the site, you need to make sure that processes are put in place to regularly maintain the site, setting up security monitors, backup scheduling, configuration of stats and caching programs, automating post broadcasts, activating Jetpack, testing contact forms, and prepping your site with search engine optimization. Many of these steps are completed after a site is live and DNS has fully propagated. This session will outline the steps I have personally used to successfully launch over 200 WordPress sites.
