So last week, I told you all about my newest project: my website relaunch! I’m so excited to continue my journey with you all. Here are the Top 3 things I am excited to change and update the most!
- My introduction
This one is my #1 must do! I have currently have a short introduction that I put together for people to read about me as they entered my site. This section is so so important because when I am working with a client or a couple, I really want to be seen as more than a vendor or than just another signed contract for their big days. So here, I’m wanting to express more about who I am as an individual so we can relate as friends first. I clearly didn’t put enough time into this before and just put something in there quick to fill up space. I don’t feel like it currently captures everything I am and my NEW introduction has so much more of personality in it. I’ll go into more detail about this in my content copy post later.
2. Personal Photos
It’s important to have photos of yourself so clients know who they are speaking to and I’ve read it’s best to showcase a photo where I am looking into the camera. Not shying to the side or looking down because eye contact creates trust and I want to build that with everyone I work with and meet. I’d also love to have a more consistent feel for my personal photos. Right now, some of my photos are in black and white while others are in color. Doesn’t make for a good flow. I’m excited to create all color images going forward for this. I had a scheduled session for new photos branding photos last week with a dear friend and I’ll be saving those to share on the day of the official website launch!
3. The Layout
Originally, I loved this layout! It’s all on one page, meaning you can just scroll from top to bottom and get ALL of the information you need – meet me, see my pricing and view my galleries! Contact form was at the bottom so after you reviewed it all, you were invited to send me an email to get the conversation going! It also included buttons to click on to jump from section to section, which was neat. But I did some reading on more SEO (blog post coming later on this!) and found it MAY BE better to have a layout with separate pages and various links and buttons. Now, I am still new at this, and could be wrong, but I think my new design will put me in a better position. Plus, it’ll still be very user friendly!
If you are also redoing your website or preparing for a brand new launch, what part are you struggling with the most?
