Tips For Best Results

I found some common items which can cause delays during this site building process and would like to share some of these tips with you to maximize your success with completing your website in a more time efficient manner. Please note that as your project manager I will do my best to work with you and make sure we are both on the same page throughout this process.

1) Please submit all requests changes via email

Changes to your website are easier to recall for both the PM and you the client when they are typed in an email and it eliminates the her/his word vs. her/his word

2) If you are able. It is always best to include picture references to changes or how to make changes

Not all of our clients can use the programs that are available on there computers. For those that can and if you are able this always helps speed up the time to get your site launched.

3) Make sure your attached files do not have space in the names for files you wish to use on your website

Wrong Example

Landscape image.jpg

Right Example

Landscape_image.jpg

4) Be specific about where to make changes on your page

Homepage Page is broken up into Header (Top Half with website title), Main Image Area, Main Navigation, Footer (Copyright information is located)

Inner Pages are broken up Header (Top Half with website title), Body or Content Section (where link text is located, Main Navigation, Footer (Copyright information is located)
