Are you ready for 2019? More importantly, is your website? Web Week is designed to help you take advantage of low traffic and inactivity by encouraging you to make changes to your site, try out new things, and revamp for the new year.

During Web Week, we encourage our customers to take advantage of this low-stress time of year to create more personalized, dynamic, and better-performing digital experiences. For brands and agencies, this is the perfect time to kick your feet up, re-access, and get creative. It’s the ideal time to get inspired and do all the things you’ve been neglecting during the hectic holiday season.

We encourage you to keep checking back for digital ideas, resolutions, and once-a-year opportunities. Web Week begins December 25th and ends December 31st this year. Be sure to take advantage of deals before the new year.

Before we kick off Web Week, here are some project and ideas you might consider for 2019…

Take a Breath and Reassess

2018 has simultaneously flown by and dragged on. It’s time to take it easy and reset. Spend some time family, sip some cocoa, and mentally recharge.  Make sure you take advantage of Chill Week — the first week of the year.

Lay the Groundwork for a New Digital Experience

Whether you’re considering a new CMS, fed up with your current platform, need to switch from a shared to a dedicated server, or simply want to add new tools and features to your current environment, there’s no better time than now to make a move and get the ball rolling.

If you’re currently using a different platform to power your website, WP Engine’s platform offers a plethora of benefits to improve your agility, maximize your performance, provide insightful intelligence, and incorporate top-notch integrations. Our platform will help you create scalable, secure, and revolutionary WordPress websites that are equipped for the ever-changing web.

Make the Changes You’ve Been Putting Off

Are there old shortcodes lingering around, bulking up your code? Do you still have widgets installed that you don’t use anymore? Perhaps your dashboard is full of comment spam. Maybe you need better analytics software or want to start reaching more audiences by adding more localized content. It’s time to address those changes you’ve been putting off. There is no better time than now. You’ll enter 2019 with a clear mind and a clean site.

Optimize Your Workflow

In addition to taking advantage of the slow time of year to optimize your workflow, Web Week is also a great time of year to do all the creative ideas you’ve been putting off to serve your business or your customer’s business. Web week is a low-risk time allowing you to have fun and explore new possibilities.
