Relaunching can be a good thing as it allows you to deliver the best user experience possible for your audience, a chance to refresh your brand and improve the bottom-line for your clients.
But that is only if you do it for the right reason and you plan the site migration properly.

You know the old saying by Benjamin Franklin: “if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail”.

If you plan and execute your relaunch successfully, this will give you the best chance of catching any problems as early as possible and to make the process a smooth one.

Because you do not want to go through the headache of a botched migration. Here's a list of to-dos if you have relaunched your website.
