Usability Checklists

Usability checklists ensure your client’s site is user-friendly. A site that is difficult to navigate will not attract high traffic. Codeias has a variety of checklists that cover all usability points, browser compatibility, multimedia content, and colour and graphics.

Some points to remember:

  • Page layout- It should be appealing to the users.
  • Browser compatibility- Can your client’s site be displayed on multiple browsers including Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Mac and Windows Safari?
  • Navigation- Navigation should be clear and for your client’s target audience to use.
  • Colour and Graphics- Consistent use of colour and keeping the colour scheme limited to 3-4 colours can enhance the site without distracting the users.

Marketing Checklist

Marketing your client’s site is an important part of the post project campaign. Viral marketing ensures you reach a large number of new users.

Some checkpoints to ensure you create a successful viral marketing campaign include:


  • Infrastructure– Ensure your client’s website is equipped with the right infrastructure to withstand high traffic. A site going down at the critical stage when they are finally getting hits can be irreversibly damaging.
  • High quality output– While amateur content can go viral with the right amount of emotional appeal, it is often unsustainable. Investing in a high quality product that connects with your target audience will give you relevance for longer and translate to more conversions.
  • Viral seeding strategies: Your client may have a great website but no one viewing it. To get the desired output, invest in targeted shares. Whether you pay for advertising on Facebook, or share within your professional network, it is important to get the product out there.
  • Measure success: Measuring the performance ensures you understand what worked and what didn’ It also helps you to re-strategise the viral marketing campaign and repeat it by enhancing only those points that worked for even greater success.
