Website Audit Technical and SEO Audit for the Non-Technical
"If a doctor handed you an x-ray and walked off, you'd be pissed." - Daniel DiGriz
Why Get a MadPipe Website Audit
No satisfaction if it's not an action.
Your website looks great, but it's not performing like it could. How do you know? A great business, highly competitive, slimmer than expected client response—especially from search engine visitors.
Most website audits are cryptic, kitchen-sync affairs that are not actionable. Run by automated tools with a massive upcharge by a consultant who hands you a book full of warnings or checkmarks with "there you go!"
Get a human-generated, human audit with an action item list at the top that PRIORITIZES exactly what to do. "Do this. Then that. Then that. And this is one is very important."
We will WRITE the audit. There WILL be a "Detail" section that explains everything for reference and has some lower priority items. The big stuff? Expect one or two pages right at the top!

Your 10-cents is only useful
if it actually makes sense.
The only reason to make technology inscrutable is to conceal how truly ordinary it can be.
Connect your audience to an aspirational narrative that motivates the team as well as end-users and is reflected in each department and practice area.
Assemble your Magnificent Seven, "A-Team", or Dirty Dozen. Each knows their job, keeps their head in the game, and does what they say when they say.
No more business as usual. Align your firm end to end with brand goals, so the entire organization pursues outcomes that produce revenue or results.
"Organizations succeed by producing a single brand narrative, carrying the same messages throughout the organization AND externally to the market. They fail when they don't produce an end-to-end experience." – Daniel DiGriz
Success is Seeing the Needle Move!
And everything else is codswallop.
You can only improve
what you can prove.
