I've heard from countless DIY'ers and designers alike - launching a site means endless to-do lists and ever-looming deadlines. And the very real fear that you might just forget the most important things and screw up your launch.
That's why I've created the Minima Guide to Launching Your Website.
This easy-to-read guide covers the critical parts you can't afford to mess up.
The Minima Guide to Launching Your Website provides you with the insights, tools and checklists that I've developed and refined over the last 11 years of launching and managing hundreds of websites.
This 81 page digital guidebook features 11 distinct chapters with content specific checklists to cover every feature of your site.
Whether you’re working on a brand new site or renovating an old one, this guide is perfect for site owners, designers, developers, virtual assistants and anyone involved in running a website.
Please Note: While primarily intended as a guidebook for WordPress websites, this manual does cover the basics of running a general website.

Michelle Martello (AKA Smartello), my genius web designer, has had me saying "thank god I hired you" on a daily basis. If you're trying to put together your first website or redoing yours, get this. No doubt the 29 bucks will save you thousands in mistakes.
After reading the book, I came away with a really clear checklist about what I needed to do for my website. Because you had a lot of experience with WordPress and building websites, I felt like everything I needed would most likely be mentioned in the book. I don't feel like I need to read 3 more books or speak with 2 more web developers to feel like I know what I'm doing. This was perect for me! Thanks for creating it. B-School was great, but your book put the tech stuff all in one place. I loved your book! It made my "website to do list" a lot more manageable.
I was looking for something clear and precise to guide me through my new brand launch website. Your whole vibe is excellent. Your site does you justice. Your clear, friendly, pro and I dont even know you but I have the trust to buy from you. So well done! [I have benefitted from the book with] confidence I have your experience presented in such a user friendly way. Most how to guides are made by geek dudes that wanna impress how smart they are and miss the whole point of who is buying their knowledge. So you are different and user friendly, yet precise to say what you need to.
I didn't even know where to start before the book. Now I can work from a list of to-dos so I can actually get my company's website up! I've never seen such an accessible, easy-to-understand guide on creating and launching your own website.
Wow, Michelle Martello, just wow. I feel like I now have you in my back pocket. For all the questions I've asked you over the years as I've tried understand the workings of a website and all that you have so patiently explained to me, THANK YOU. You are one smart cookie and we are so blessed to have this guide in our hot little hands. Brava!

I was looking for a reasonably priced 'checklist-style' guide to add to my design toolbox.[I liked the] price, size of book, and clarity of purpose. I'm big on clarity of purpose - I don't want an ebook to cover 20 topics. I like straightforward writing, with actionable content. I've already added to my personal 'site launch' checklist because of the book. Well done! For the price, this is an excellent value. This is the kind of digital product that makes me want to look at your other ebooks - keep up the great work!
I make websites and all the things you describe in the book are things I do but each section of the book help you keep things organized and help you not to forget anything. Things can get a little messy sometimes and as I've just built my process, I've been able to add some steps found in your book. Now I am very well prepared! I would recommend it because it's explain in plain english, right to the point, concise, and the lists are so helpful. It can help people to understand that create a site is not just pick 2 colors and just click on a button. There are lots of steps involved. I would recommend it both to a client or to a web designer to help him build his process.
