Once your website is launched, you are ready to monitor and assess its performance.
Review Your Baselines
First, we’ll review the baselines you established around key performance indicators. Where was the old site in terms of usability, accessibility, and engagement? What were the numbers in terms of page visits, return visits, and links to important calls to action like apply, visit or make an appointment? These are the types of metrics we will use to make sure your redesign has met your departmental goals.
Establish a Plan
Next, we’ll work with you to establish a plan to measure your KPIs at specific intervals. Web analytics can be measured weekly, quarterly or around specific events like the start of the term. Usability studies should be conducted within six months of launch and then at regular intervals.
The age of the grand web redesign is past. It’s no longer sufficient to let your website grow stale until the next major redesign project. Instead, think about making smaller, iterative changes based on analytics and user testing. Our team can teach you easy methods for testing out changes with end users and keeping them engaged.
