22 May Starting a New Website – The Third Dialogue
Copywriting is done for the new site… or so we thought. Even nearing completion new sections required new descriptions and new photos required new captions. Here the dialogue for a new website continues with beta testing and the hiccups.
Entering into beta testing, we ran into three main hiccups: the web store, the calendar and the training curve.
The main hiccup that we encountered was that of moving the web store. This was a difficult task. Early on in the process the owner, Greg Gilla elected to keep the web store as it is for now (solely due to the existing budget). However the task of moving the web store from one site server to another was daunting and haunting to say the least. Yet, we were able to handle that on our own. With that detail behind us the site is now ready to go live. And if you want to avoid this hiccup simply have Andiamo do it for you.
Calendars are never easy when it comes to websites. And even during initial views it became evident this would be the one area of focus for improvement. With a clean functioning calendar we are sure to secure those additional online sign-ups for our events (which was a main objective we hashed out during the creative brief)!
Our training curve involved not only making colleagues familiar with how to edit through a WordPress site but also making all of us (myself included) familiar with the new plug ins and upgrades. While I have worked with WordPress many times I needed training for the Supernav and the calendar. Thankfully, with AndiamoCreative you get a training session teaching you how to update the website!
We at Robot City Workshop never thought there would be so much content (copy and photos) going into the creation of a new website! We have hundreds of photos and words just waiting for a home on a page and thanks to Andiamo Creative it will be done, highly creatively.
Drink some water and hold your nose to cure those hiccups. Thanks for reading.
