How To Provide Great Revisions
What To Revise
Revisions are how we ensure your website really reflects you visually. Please send feedback and revisions on:
- Layouts and alignments
- Image placements
- Any and all things visual
Note: Revisions Are Not For Written Content Updates
When you purchase the Empathysites service, you purchase our design and setup service for the content that you hand us. This means that revisions focus on the design of your site with the existing content. (Read our help article on what happens if you'd like to update your content before launch).
Good vs. Bad Revisions
Example of A Good Revision Item
“The beige color used in the sidebar area is a bit too bright. Can we make it more gray? Similar to the gray seen on this website [insert link].”
Why is this a good revision item?
- Describe the location of the revision (sidebar)
- State the issue (color is too bright)
- Describe desired change (make the color more gray)
- Point to an exact example if needed (included a link)
An example of a bad revision item
“The whole design needs more pop!!!”
Why is this a bad revision item?
- No specific location
- The issue is subjective or open to personal interpretation (what does pop mean?)
- No a description of the desired change to be made
- Doesn’t include an example to demonstrate what change is needed
Try to keep your revision items specific, descriptive, and use examples when possible.
Be honest with your feedback and revisions. We won’t judge you or take it personally.
It is the mission of Empathysites to help you connect with those you can truly help. To do that, your site needs to be a reflection of you and also be shaped by tapping into where you feel your clients are so let's collaborate on making the best experience for them on your site!
How To Send Revisions
Now that you know what to revise and how, let's jump into the best way to send your revisions over to us. It starts with our revision document:
Get A Revision Document
Using The Revision Document
Download the revisions document for a starting off point for how to send revisions to us.
You'll see that the document organizes revisions based on location, which will help us understand where on your site you would like a change.
For instance, you'll want to place revisions that are in the header area of your website, the logo/name, call to action, and navigation area, in a single list or you could also create new lists for each of these locations.
For other areas or pages on your site, feel free to create lists as needed to be able to communicate all of your desired revisions with us.
Create One Revision Document For Each Round Of Revisions
Each round of revisions correlates with a revision document, so please fill one out with all of your revision items for the given round.
Ready? Email Us Your Revisions
Once you have completed creating a revision document, you may email the document to us. If you need to include any further files, you can email them to us along with a completed revision document.
Send to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to getting your revisions.
