Spring cleaning for your website

There's spring cleaning for your home and for your paperwork, but what about for your website? 

It's not far fetched to need spring cleaning for your website either. It's important to see what needs updating and removing on a regular basis, and now is the perfect time to check in with your website.  

Here are some things you can do to make sure that your website is spring clean and ready to go.

1. Look over your banners and graphics  

Are they updated with your fonts, colors, images, etc? If not go ahead and fix those and post them to your website. I have a few to fix myself.  

2. Check all your announcements or promos

Are your announcements and promos up to date ? How old really is that intro announcement on your website, or that pop up box for your email list? Updating these regularly shows you're active on your site. 

3.  Clean out any coupon codes if you have them

If you have an online shop linked to your website, then you probably have coupon codes stacked up from some point. Make sure you're cleaning out any old ones you don't plan to use anymore.  

4. Check your bio and update it 

Is your age up to date ? Are you going on a different path now than when you started? Don't just check your bio here, but your business bio as well aka your mission statement. Make sure both of these things are still relevant to you and your brand. 

5. Check for typos

Totally guilty. I almost never check for typos. 🤦‍♀️ I know, I know.  It's something I have to start doing. (Watch there be a typo in this post). Seriously though. If not in your blog posts at least check your website. ESPECIALLY your homepage. That's your first impression. 

6. Clear out your media history  

I know you do it to. You upload pictures for your website and they sit in that little media library section for the entire year. Yeah. So make sure you go through and clear out any old pictures, videos, files, etc.
