Icon or Spacer Macromedia Website Production Management Techniques Phase 6: Launch

The following is a sneak peek and outline of the topics that will be covered by this section in the coming months. To give us feedback, please visit our Production Management Online Forum, and we’ll work to be sure your interests are covered.

This phase is about launching your site, and what you need to think about before, during and after the site goes live. It is also about picking up the loose ends before you move into the next phases of development. You have completed the QA process—instead of reacting and fixing haphazardly, plan to create a list and schedule to prioritize the post-launch fixes. This stage is also about handing off the site—whether you are an external development team handing off to the client company or an internal team preparing for continuing maintenance—and making sure that there is a proper ‘package’ for handoff. Also, we will discuss how to announce your site, including resources and links you can use to help generate awareness both online and offline.
