Econsultancy Small Business Online Resource Manager

Save yourself tears with the Econsultancy Online Resource Manager

Do you outsource your website and related services? If so you must ensure you retain access and ownership of your online resources to prevent any potential negative impact to your businesses.

To help manage this process I've put together a resource which is now part of Econsultancy's Digital Marketing Template Files.

This is the second in a short series of posts which aims to primarily benefit small website owners, but consequently helps the web designers producing sites for those types of businesses.


The essential small business website checklist

This checklist is intended to assist small business owners. It outlines the must have elements for your website so you can ensure it has the best chance of succeeding online.

This is the first in a short series which aims primarily to benefit small businesses with regards to their websites and online success. Consequently it might also help if you’re a web designer building small sites for businesses on a budget.

This small business website checklist will be most relevant for small sites or simple ecommerce sites because it’s a general checklist, but it’s amazing how many bigger (and often expensive) websites belonging to large companies fail to adhere to some basic web design fundamentals.

The list below will enable you to quickly check the most fundamental elements are in place on your website and it should take you no longer than 30 minutes to carry out the checks.
