Getting Started On Your Website
Here’s an overview of what we need and to help guide you along before we begin!
5 Easy Steps
1) WHAT WE NEED TO GET STARTED
IMAGES & PICTURES
This is meant for tracking your website project. Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in the process. You can drag drop items into the columns as they move along from left to right.
Each item in the list is called a “card”, and clicking on each card reveals details about the card that include the due date, label, messages, and file uploads.
Cards will be color coded with a labels to reflect Milestone due dates.
Dropbox is a great online image/file sharing platform. This is a useful tool where we will save all your files. Such as photos, copy, logo/branding files, website backup and login credentials. We will setup a folder for the project and will share the folder with you via email. You can upload all your images and files there.
4) THE DESIGN PROCESS
Designing a website is an extensive process. To better help you understand what to expect I will list it out my process in 3 main steps. You will be able to follow along in Trello on your project board, which shows items as they are completed.
1) LAYOUT AND DESIGN
3) EDITS & REVISIONS
5) WRAPPING UP & GOING LIVE!
We now backup your website (save a copy in Dropbox) and upload it to your server. We remove all unnecessary plugins, backend files and check url links. Once live, it may take between 24-48 hours for the new site to show up on all devices. Some computers you will need to clear your browser cache and refreshed. This all depends on your computer, wifi connection and relation to your server.
You will receive a user login for your WordPress dashboard, so you can make edits to your site as needed. This is the time where we show you how to login into your website through WordPress and go through basic editing.
Upon completion, you’ll receive a link to a “moving forward” page where you’ll receive tips and tricks on what to do with your new website. Also information on our Maintenance/Security Plan which we highly recommend for all our clients.
