Content is the most important element of any website. Your static page content, including information, descriptions, bios, calls-to-action, images, videos, and resources make up the foundation of your web presence. We will build or customize your website around your content, ensuring that the user experience is optimal, regardless of the device used.
Because it is a significant factor in the price of your website solution, a common and affordable approach is to collaborate on the content development. We receive from you all of the written and visual content that you can provide at the start of the process (firm information, attorney bios, practice areas, firm differentiators, selling points, testimonials, statistics, recognition, accolades, headshots, office images, city images, videos, etc.). We will then write, create or obtain any additional content that is needed, revise and optimize it to be compelling and search-friendly, and then design/customize your website around the content.
You can submit your content via email. A Word document is preferred for written content, and image and video files can be sent in a zip (compressed) file. If you have any questions or concerns around submitting content, please let us know.
For those interested in adding the core content to the website yourself later, we can include demo content, so that you can easily add and edit through the CMS (Content Management System). Additionally, you will always be in control of your content, and can always edit or launch new, dynamic content via the CMS, right on the live pages!
To start, think about the pages that you will want in your website (Home, Practice Areas, Attorneys, etc.). Each page will include visual and copy elements. Below are questions and recommendations to help you provide relevant information to develop your content. Keep in mind, we will revise (rewrite if necessary) and optimize all of the content before launching the website, so don't get too caught up in grammar or other imperfections. We will also create or obtain content for pages or elements for which you do not have adequate content.
