What We Need To Build Your Site

First Things First

We can’t do any work until you authorize us to do it and have met your payment obligations.

  1. Did you sign and return your proposal? If not, we need that ASAP.
    • This will come to you via PandaDoc through your primary email address.
  2. Complete our Website Survey and all pertinent info below.
    • A detailed full list of ALL of your services and specialties. Or find a website sample that offers the exact same services that you want to offer.
    • Any reports that past marketing people gave you.
    • Specials we can publish – free second opinions, flat cost options, or packages, or coupons. $50 off? $100 off? 10% off a service?
  3. Provide credit card information via fax or phone (ask for James or Kira). We need full credit card details for Google Ads and Call Tracking phone numbers.

It’s All About Access

We need access to the back-end of your website and other locations in order to do the work you have requested.

  1. Website Login Credentials:
    • Your websites login link - Example YourWebsiteName.com/wp-admin/
    • Your user name and password for your site.
  2. Domain Name & Hosting:
    • We need access to the current hosting so we can access important information for your site.
      • We will take your old site and clone a copy so you don't have any downtime from our work.
    • We need access to the new domain name prior to launch.
  3. Google Analytics:
  4. Google My Business:

Conversion & Lead Tracking

We use services that help us keep track of your marketing efforts. We want to be able to show you tangible progress and results because we believe in transparency.

  1. We set up / verify proper tracking is set up on your site.
    • Placing a "Thank You" page after calls to action gives us the ability to track that action's performance.
    • This will help us (and you) see a clearer picture of interaction on your site.
  2. Call tracking phone numbers.
    • Establishing a dedicated number with call tracking gives us the ability to track your leads and provide you even more data on conversions.

Uploading Your Visual Assets

  1. Send your photos/images by adding them to Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/f4vleoo1ltnc1m2/AADozy32A5j7H_ahfDSZeoQ_a?dl=0
    • We prefer PSD, PNG, or EPS files for all photos/images/graphics we need from you.

A brief description of file types to help you understand why we would need each one:

  • .jpg = Web / Universal screen format, smaller file size, not good enough for print.
  • .png = Transparent background, larger file size, good for web and some print.
  • .ai = Adobe Illustrator (program file - can edit the logo in layers - good for print - must have the program)
  • .psd = Adobe Photoshop (program file - can edit the logo in layers - good for print - must have the program)
  • .eps = Vector - a scalable format that you can open with most graphic design programs. Good for every application.

Branding & Logos

A logo says a lot about your company and when you launch a new website this is a great time to reimagine your logo or spruce it up to fit in with your brand new website. If you are interested in logo design we do recommend a freelance logo designer that can help you get the best return on your investment.
