Website builds can be like a horror movie!
-Welcome to the lighter side of MMInbound and Happy Friday the 13th! Weird things seem to happen during a website build. Links disappear mysteriously, pages become disfigured and sometimes it feels like you’re caught in a bad movie.
The only problem? This movie is REAL. The good news? There isn’t a 7 foot tall psychopath chasing you. Wooo!
In the spirit of today, we put together 5 meme’s to help you survive a website build. As you know, Jason hates…just about everything. Meaning he probably hates website builds too. So, kickback and enjoy!
Begin With The End In-Mind

Remember strategy is your guiding light…now just don’t run into that abandoned house!

Know When To Take a Break
Now, this isn’t to say that you shouldn’t look through your website with a fine tooth comb. This is to say, that you need to take a break.
What is a glaring problem to you, is unnoticeable to others. Don’t over think what you’re fixing and don’t ask for too many opinions. Soon, your website can start to look like Jason’s face to the left…ugly.

?Problems Will Happen
Building a website is somewhat similar. Something isn’t going to go as planned – that’s just the way it is.
Being able to get up and continuing moving forward is the key! Your website isn’t going to chase you down, but it might take more time from back from issues. You must be ready to react while keeping your schedule.
Lesson: Be ready for the unknown…
