How To Submit Updates
We’ve completed more than 1000+ hours of billed site updates and learned a thing or two in the process. Following the tips below puts your updates on a fast track and reduces back and forth. Review the list and remember that we’re here to help!
1. Submit Request Online – We humbly request all changes to be made digitally using our simple online form below. Since we have predetermined the most important pieces of information in short simple questions, we can help you faster than if you were to email us your request manually.
2. Include Overview of Needs – If you’re requesting more than one change, a simple 1-2 sentence description of what you’re trying to accomplish helps us understand your needs better. By including this you allow our expertise to shine and give us the ability to make suggestions based on your changes.
3. Make a Numbered List – There’s a saying, “if it isn’t written down, it doesn’t exist”. However, I’d like to add, “if it’s not a numbered list, it won’t get done”. By clearly numbering each change on the site you allow our team to focus on each item until it’s correct and complete.
4. Attach All Necessary Files – Many site updates require additional text or images. We will gladly accept any text changes via form submission, attached word documents or even by email. Also, if you have more than 5 documents to attach please use our helpful file uploader at upload.glidedesign.com.
