Ok. So, I stay up on Sunday nights and do my VA networking and research. I noticed some things tonight that I wanted to bring to everyone's attention!
First...it is very important that everyone looks at their website regularly! TEST YOUR CONTACT FORMS! Hosts & web providers have made changes to PHP coding and rules that will probably effect YOU! What does that mean? Your form may have stopped working completely! Test it out and make sure. If it doesn't work, make sure you are using a Hosting company that regularly updates their servers, PHP, and HTML coding. It isn't always smart to go with the cheapest company for hosting! Especially if your content doesn't stay functioning! (If you would like info on a great company I recommend, let me know!)
Second...Test your website from internet explorer, mozilla firefox...and other web browsers. Most people still use Internet Explorer, and it is important that your site looks the same on all browsers.
Third...If you are interested in offering a "Live Chat" option on your site, consider checking out vollusion.com. I just found the Live Chat service for FREE on their site! I always love finding things for free.
Fourth...make sure all of your links work. You can do this by clicking on each one...or using a web-based program to check them quickly for you. In my research...half of the VA sites i visited have links that don't work!
I know we all get into focusing on our clients' business so often, that we tend to forget about our own...but these things are really important!!!
