NEW VIDEO IN PRODUCTION. STAY TUNED VIA YOUR INBOX OR SIGN UP NOW
Often going live comes with a last minute rush with a plethora of last minute items and requests being thrown in from the team and client. It tends to be human nature to leave things until the last minute, or perhaps more fairly, to continually improve and strive to make your work be as best as it can be. Nevertheless, last minute stresses are too often the reality and it can catch even the most prepared team off guard. Often QA and Testing is complete and signed off and then at the last minute, there is a new page added, or form fields changed, and if these new additions bring can mistakes.
More so, a website is a living breathing thing, where changes and modifications should be enjoyed ongoing in the live environment. With this in mind, it is a good idea to have a process for QA and Testing that the entire team is aware of, and can test throughout the life of a website. Here we look at a 9 step checklist with links to other Episodes in this Series for more detailed information.
Ensure each page has been moved from Draft to Live.
Check your system pages to ensure they all have content.
If you're a content writer it's often difficult to proof your own copy, especially directly after you've written it.
Consider getting assistance from a professional, perhaps by a neutral person from outside your organisation. It's often good to find somebody that understands the terminology of your project so that they can best advise on particular nuances.
Services like Fiverr.com can often be great places to go for quick turnarounds and a quality service.
8. USER TESTING
Once you've tested your website and it's ready to go live, it's a great idea to invite a select group of individuals to offer you feedback. These might be people from within your customer segments, though over friends and family can offer a fresh pair of eyes and blunt constructive criticism.
In terms of quality control, do respect all the feedback that you receive. Often you'll get new ideas and perspectives that you never anticipated that offer tremendous value.
Consider using the Workshop or Roadmap Tools to keep a log of the Feedback and score the Importance or Priority to dictate the role out of the modifications.
Use Integrations such as Hotjar or CrazyEgg to continue User Testing web your website goes live.
