Professional Website Package To Do List
Congratulations on choosing your website package! We’ve come up with a list of things we’ll need from you to complete your website. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us and we’ll walk you through the process.
Hosting with Us?
I purchased hosting with my website package: We need to know what domain name you’d like registered. Also let us know what email addresses you would like us to create (up to 5). For example: firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll take care of the rest!
I already have a hosting account for my website: Please provide us with your hosting account login details so we can upload your website.
List the pages you’d like on your site, up to 8. For example:
- About Us
- Photo Gallery
Once you’ve decided on the pages for your website, we’ll need text and images for each one. For example, the About page could feature an overview of your company and a picture of your store. We need your content for each page on the site except for the Photo Gallery.
What colours would you like to use on your site? Keep it to 3 main colours, or if you have a logo, let us know and we can match the site to your brand colours.
What images (up to 5) do you want to showcase on the homepage of your site? The homepage slideshow will make the first impression on your users. If you don’t have specific images you’d like to use, then give us an idea of some stock photos or message you’d like to convey.
What 2 custom web graphics would you like us to create for your site? This does not include a logo. A web graphic can promote a specific product or service, or can be used as a call to action: “Call Now!”, “Shop Now!”. View some examples of web graphics for some inspiration.
If you want to show your business on a map, please provide us with your address so we can plot your location on a Google map and users can easily get directions.
If you have any time sensitive news updates, monthly specials, or notices you’d like to post, send them to us so we can add them to your blog. Each blog post must have a title, description and image, if necessary.
If you want to link to other sites (ie. resources, partners or sponsors), provide us with the URL, title and description and image if necessary for each one, up to 10.
We will create up to 3 photo galleries for you so let us know what you’d like to call them. Also be sure to send us the photos you’d like to add and what galleries they belong to.
If you have a Facebook page, let us know the URL so we can embed it into your site.
If you have a Twitter account, let us know your Twitter URL or account name so we can embed your tweets into your site.
Please provide us with your contact info and/or a custom message you’d like displayed on the contact form page (ie. phone number, store hours, email address, location etc.)
