What makes a business Social
You want your business to be as successful as it can possibly be. You have to think that way, to dream a little bit. If you don’t have a greater vision of what your creation could become, then the chances are it won’t ever get off the ground at all.
At the heart of every great entrepreneurial idea is a dream, someone who allowed their imagination to run away with them.
However, as fun as dreaming can be, there is no harm in properly planning ahead.
If your business does become a success, if it does fulfil your dreams, you need to colour in some of the grey areas, to fill in the detail. The same thing applies to your website. If (or when) it becomes successful, you want to rest easy, safe in the knowledge that it can cope with the increased demand.
Think of the online world as a busy high street. If a new shop opens up, offering terrific products at affordable prices, as well as great customer service, it will attract more and more people. Those people will make it more difficult to get around the shop, they’ll form long queues, they’ll hassle the shop assistants, making them tetchy and unresponsive.
Eventually, because of the amount of choice available to them, people will go to another shop.
Just like the high street, the online world is full of choice, and people surfing the net can now afford to be picky. If your website isn’t up to scratch, they’ll just stop visiting.
Web load testing with the NCC Group lets you know how your website copes under the pressure of increased visitors.
This will allow you anticipate and prepare for failure, should it happen, and to develop and improve your website’s performances.
Tests are fast, cost-efficient and conducted on a bespoke basis, so that you can target specific areas that might need addressing. These tests can be conducted by trained professionals, or administered yourself with a simple training package.
This all means that if your dream becomes reality, your business is in a position to take advantage, and that you can enjoy the fruits of success without having to worry about compromising on quality. Keep the standards that you set yourself high. Initiate some web load testing, see whether your website is able to take the stresses and strains of popularity, and stay one step ahead of the game.
