What is your favourite piece of advice for launching a new website?
I'm preparing to launch my new website in July.
Celine - it's a little thing, however it makes a massive impact to the user.
Put your telephone number (if applicable) on page one in a prominent position. If I am searching for you on my mobile it's most likely because I want to contact you. Make it easy for me.
Also, if the purpose of your site is to get more business - be sure to have have a call to action and lead capture form

Give people want they want.
Talk budgets with your designer, its not like going to the market haggling over carrots. A cheap price will cost you later one, think your a return on investment.
Make sure you have a call to action on the first page of your website.
All the best for the launch!

Make sure your website is response and adaptive in design (one website works across all devices). Any business that has a "Mobile Version" of their website has hacked off some of the information or functionality and I don't appreciate it when trying to find things.
Keep in mind that just because the content "shrinks" to display on smaller devices the layout of the content doesn't need to remain identical to the desktop version. That also applies to navigation. The same links should be available, but they don't have to be presented in the same style or location.
Mobile is important, so make it a prioirty.
