    34. Are you missing these essentials? 20 key elements you can\'t afford to miss in your website builds (part 2/2)

    34. Are you missing these essentials? 20 key elements you can\'t afford to miss in your website builds (part 2/2)

    In this episode of Women in Wealth WordPress, I dive into the crucial elements that are often missed in the website build process. From SSL certificates to CDN implementation, I discuss how these technical components can greatly impact your website's performance and security. 

    I also stress the importance of integrating Google Analytics into your website and providing your clients with access to their data. This invaluable tool allows you to track website performance, make improvements, and build a strong client relationship.

    Additionally, I emphasize the significance of submitting your website to Google Search Console and Bing to dominate the search engine results page and cater to voice-activated search and mobile browsers. 

    Client communication is key, especially during the go-live stage, where I discuss the benefits of transparently communicating with your clients and providing them with everything they need to share and promote their new website. 

    Lastly, I delve into the crucial step of handover, equipping your clients with the necessary tools to manage their website on a day-to-day basis, and ensuring the importance of regular updates to prevent any website breakdowns.

From hosting to software and everything in between, I break down 10 key aspects that can make a significant impact on the success of your websites, and business. 

    The first half of the episode focuses on hosting, where I discuss the potential issues with shared cloud servers and the importance of having regular backups saved in multiple locations. I also highlight the significance of increasing the memory limit for better website performance and compatibility with high-quality software.

    Moving on to software, I delve into the importance of configuring SMTP for secure mail transfer, ensuring that emails are delivered successfully. I also touch on the significance of image optimization to enhance site speed and user experience, as well as the importance of spam filtering to protect your website from unwanted solicitations.

    From there, we move into the build, and discuss one page I always see forgotten about!
