Smile Do you research before launching a website?

Do you go for research before launching a website?

I think that thorough research about product is very important before launching a website.

It would depend on whether or not you want to try to make real money.....

A site to "share" a hobby or your favorite "whatever" without an effort to monetize wouldn't matter...

It is as in real life. No company (at least the one that want to be successful) does not launch a new product without a thorough research.
Yes I do a lot of research before launching a new site.

Absolutely! I do research before even purchasing a domain. I typically have an idea for the site conceived and researched way before the launch.

Doing research on your target audience and going through the website planning process can yield so much information for other areas of the website/blog's success.
  • keywords/phrases the target audience uses
  • what your target audience wants/needs
  • where the target audience hangs out (so you hang out in the right places)
  • what your target audience's computer skills are (so you provide the appropriate website features)
  • do they prefer newsletters, RSS feeds or not into any of that stuff (provides info on how best to keep in touch with potential clients)

Even through your research and website planning you will determine if the market is saturated, missing an element or if you are going to have to work extra hard to be successful if you choose a saturated market.

I have researched only keywords and relative markets before launch website. Other researching is unnecessary for me.
