Tribal Media CO.
Welcome to the Tribe! We wanted to make an overview for you on what we need and a guide to help you get started!
1. What We Need To Get Started
PDF, EPS or high res JPEG or PNG works fine.
Your Hosting account login.
An administrator login to your current WordPress site (If you have one up already).
Images & Pictures
Current and/or new images and pictures you’d like to use on the new site.
Page content and any verbiage we would need for the site.
Brand Style Guide
Brand style guide or any colors and specific design requirements.
Slack is a GREAT platform for communication and project management. We’ll be using this to send all our messages, share files and track all of our progress during the prodject. This will help also, alleviate content and images being lost in long email threads that can just get confusing! (Not to worry we will still use email!) Once we have started you will recieve an email to set up your Slack and we will be up and running!
3. Google Drive
Google Drive is an AWESOME image/file sharing platform. This is where we will host all of the photos and videos that you send our way. You will recieve an email from us with your personal Google Drive folder where you can bulk upload every piece of content that we need from you!
4. The Design Process
Crafting your custom website, no matter how big or small, is an extensive process that can be overwhelming. To better help you understand what to expect during the design we broke it down to 3 different steps!
1. LAYOUT AND DESIGN
A large portion of this project and the most time consuming is the planning and layout process. How it works is we will make a sitemap (hierarchy of all pages) of the website for approval, then we will design your home page and a sub page that will be approved before we move forward!
Once the main layout and design is approved we will move forward with building the rest of the site. We wil make sure that it looks great and has everything you mentioned that you wanted in your questionnaire.
3. EDITS AND REVISIONS
Once the site is ready for final review, you will be able to look at each page and we can make detailed edits until the site is ready. Generally this is about 2 rounds of revisions. We ask that you review ALL pages to make sure all spelling, grammar, addresses and information are correct before we go live!
5. WRAPPING UP & GOING LIVE
Once the site is ready to go live, all unnecessary plugins, pages, images and backend files will be removed. The new site will be backed up and saved locally, should it ever need restored. Once live, it may take between 24-48 hours for the new site to pull up on some devices. Some computers will need to be refreshed in order to see the new site, though most computers will see the new site immediately depending on the wifi connection and where they are in relation to the location of server that the website is on.
Your website logins and all credentials will be sent to you via Slack or secure email insuring the security of your passwords. Though your logins and passwords will be saved by us locally, PLEASE SAVE ALL LOGINS FOR YOUR RECORDS AS WELL. Upon completion, you’ll receive a link to our “moving forward” page where you’ll receive tips and tricks on what to do with your new website and also information on our Maintenance/Security Plan which we highly recommend for all our clients.
