It’s the big day. Only a couple months until your conference and time to launch your event website. Your heart is tied into knots and a rush of anxiety bubbles into your chest as you hover over the publish button. You grip the mouse with white-knuckles then hear the sound of a left-click as if your finger had a mind of its own. “Well, this is it,” you sigh.
Then… crickets. You thought a rush of traffic would flood onto your site like 5 o’clock on the beltway. You thought attendees would be knocking down the front page like a Target on Black Friday. But you were wrong.
The trick is following the right steps before, during, and after your website launch. If you prepare and engage users, you’ll launch to hungry visitors and keep them coming back for more.
