Sometimes the most simple things are not easily obvious. One thing I’ve observed in my years of developing websites is that the more we have to touch a page to make layout changes, editing content, or changing out photos, the more time adds up in actually completing a website launch.
So, if you’re in a rush to get your website done, or you don’t want to pay for extra hours of work, one suggestion I make to my clients is to proofread your content before submitting it to Smitten for adding to your new web design. It doesn’t matter what your business type is, or whether you are located in Bend, Oregon or Timbuktu, Africa––the content editing takes loads of time once it is up on the website.
We build the websites to be easy to update, and they are. It just takes time to go through an entire website making tiny edits to content on every page. We have to pull the page up, open the editor, find the location of the content that needs edited, make the change, save the page, and then check the published side to ensure the change looks right.
So, next time you’re getting your website redesigned or changing out content on your website, proofread it before you hand it off to your web developer. Your project will be done faster. Guaranteed! 🙂
