In order to facilitate good communications with our clients, we recommend that they use the following free software tools. These tools make the communications process function smoothly and save time and effort, on both the part of our clients and eTraffic Web Design.
We recommend the use of Dropbox for all file sharing. Sending files by email can be problematic and many large files cannot be sent by email. In addition, it can get very confusing as to what has been sent and what we have actually received.
DropBox uses folders stored online via an iCloud system so you can simply upload any type of file i.e. Word Doc, Excel Spreadsheet, MP3, JPEG images and even full length videos, which your Project Manager will have instant access to.
If you currently have any photos or content that your wish to incorporate into your site, please upload it to DropBox.
A free software which seamlessly integrates into any desktop or laptop computer. Once you have installed this software you are able to take print screens of any designs we send you and write your changes directly onto the image.
This allows us to instantly visualise your change requirements, rather than attempting to interpret a text only message, which can often lead to a misinterpretation of your needs, saving both of us time and effort.
We use Basecamp for our project management both internally and externally, ensuring continuous communication throughout the entire Web Design process.
You receive instant email updates as soon as they are completed. You can also see the history of any communications you have with us and vice versa. Any changes you make through ‘Jing’ can be uploaded directly into Basecamp enabling your Project Manager can act on them immediately.
This is the website you can use to search through literally millions of separate high quality stock images for your website. Later on, we will present the most effective mechanism for communicating them to your project manager.
