As the end of 2019 is getting near, company owners and leaders are starting to lay down their strategic plans for 2020. One of their main focus is on marketing efforts. For successful marketing to take place, checking the health of your website is essential.
Few months before the end of 2019, companies from different industries are preparing their marketing plans for the next year. One of them is the offshoring industry which remains as one of the most competitive income-generating fields in this generation.
As a vital part of your marketing efforts, refreshing your website and preparing it for the next year should be a must. Now, to further understand what and which comes first, here are 11 things that you can do to your website to push it into 2020.

Advances in technology will only become more prominent as the years pass by. In 2020, think-tanks are aiming to achieve better communication with clients and customers. With this, conversational marketing is highly anticipated. Also to avoid clogged chat boxes and other modes of communication, implementing the use of chatbots and live chats are a probable solution. At the very least, chatbots can answer common questions, qualify leads, set meetings and so much more.
#2. Measure your marketing
It is important to set up the right tracking software/analytics to see how well your website is doing before making any changes. It will also provide a plus point to your marketing if you can integrate visitor tracking and marketing automation.
