STEP 1: Getting Started – Your Project Guide

Your project guide is your compass throughout this journey. It contains all the essential information you need to know. Think of it as your digital project roadmap. Keep it handy, and let’s explore its contents.

STEP 2: Filling Worksheets – Your Vision, Your Words

In this step, you’ll find worksheets, including the design brief. These are your canvas to paint the picture of your website. Your input here is invaluable as it sets the tone and direction. Remember, your words will shape your website.

STEP 3: Adding Visuals – A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words

Visual elements are crucial. Upload images and specify links for each page right in these worksheets. Ensure all worksheets are completed five days before development starts. Also, don’t forget to upload all necessary images and content before development begins.

STEP 4: Crafting Blogs – Share Your Insights

If you’re planning to have a blog section, you can upload up to five entries. Titles, categories, and content should all be included. Adding a welcoming headshot can help your readers connect with you.

STEP 5: Contact Information – Stay Connected

Your contact page folder is where you’ll provide all necessary contact information. This step ensures your visitors can easily reach out to you.

STEP 6: E-commerce Essentials – Set Up Shop

For e-commerce ventures, complete all documents in the E-commerce folder, including the product spreadsheet. Payment information and terms and conditions should also be provided here.

STEP 7: Homepage Personalization – Make a Great First Impression

Your homepage is where you make your first impression. Include essential information, banner or slider images, and a welcoming headshot. Let your ideal clients connect with you right from the start.

STEP 8: Share Inspirations – Your Design Preferences

The inspiration folder is your canvas to share screenshots or images that reflect your design preferences. Feel free to upload visuals that inspire your vision.

STEP 9: Logo Upload – Brand Identity

Don’t forget to upload your logo in various formats to the logo folder. Your logo is an essential part of your brand identity.

STEP 10: Additional Tabs – Customise Your Website

Customize additional tabs like About Us, Services, or Portfolio by providing relevant content in their respective folders. Use photos, descriptions, and galleries as needed.

STEP 11: Social Media and More – Stay Connected

The Social Media, Hosting, and Privacy Policy folder holds crucial details. Fill out all relevant sheets to ensure your website integrates seamlessly with social media platforms, hosting services, and complies with privacy policies.

STEP 12: Upload Images – Enhance Your Content

For each page, post, or section on your website, upload images in the corresponding folder. Naming your files appropriately ensures easy reference.
