SITE PERFORMANCE AUDITS
If you already have a web site and/or online marketing campaign running, but the ROI is weak or you're not sure how well your site/campaign is performing, we offer detailed performance audits that can show you exactly where things are going wrong and how to address the issues quickly. Performance audits are especially crucial in the following scenarios:
1. Prior to implementing / costing a SEO strategy.
2. Prior to rolling out a new web design or Content Management System (CMS).
3. In advance of seeking Venture Capital or investment of some kind.
4. Prior to putting a web site / business up for sale (to accurately determine site value).
5. Prior to re-branding or launching a new product / service.
The content of your audit will be slightly different depending on the scenario you face.
