If you have a current website, we will gladly take your existing content and use it for your new website design. If we are developing a new website and you already have content prepared, please email the content to us at your earliest convenience, or provide access to the the shared folder with the content (please use email@example.com if providing access to a shared folder in Drive or Dropbox for website design work).
In order for us to begin design, we need text content for your homepage. If our content writer is producing your content, our design process will start immediately after content is finalized. Delays in content delivery can negatively impact the agreed upon completion date for your website. Please be mindful of this.
- If you are creating content for the website yourself, please be aware we cannot begin the design phase until we have received AT LEAST the homepage text content. If you do not have content for the website, Thrive Web Designs offers exceptional content writing services at very competitive rates – please speak with your project manager for more information about this service.
Clients purchasing a new website are responsible for providing the text content that will populate the web pages. General recommendations follow:
- Most pages require 300 – 500 words of quality content to have value. Pages with specific functions such as galleries and contact pages do not require significant written content, if any. Service pages should have as many words as are needed to detail who, what, when, where, and why about the service. The “why” component should include what separates and makes your business better than your competitors. It is recommended to provide at least 500 words of text for each service.
- We prefer when business owners/employees write their own content because it adds a personal touch to the website, and the content is typically more specific to the company when compared to content written by professionals.
