The Shopify Rebuild package is for those that already have a Shopify site but think it needs a fresh look and feel (a new theme) and a bit of a UX overhaul to increase customer conversions.
If you're happy with the look and feel of your site, but just want to make some tweaks here and there to increase sales, the Shopify Refresh package is for you - that's where we work on the most important stuff to get you going!
The point of this page is to outline what I require to get cracking on your Shopify Rebuild. The way I work, is that I wait until I have all (or at least most) of the information required before I start working on rebuilding your Shopify site.
I've added this page to give you a head start on compiling and collating all the bits and pieces that I might need (feel free to confirm what the requirements are for your rebuild), so that I can get in, get it done, get out and you can carry on your merry way!
Your thoughts on themes
It helps if you have a theme in mind, if you've seen a website that you like the look of, or you at least know what functionality you are chasing. The Shopify theme store is a good place to start when looking at themes.
If you don't find what you're looking for, you can step up to Theme Forest. There are a lot (and I mean a lot) of Shopify themes available on there. It pays to filter using the options on the left as it can be overwhelming otherwise.
Access to your Shopify site
Once you let me know your myshopify.com address (eg: firstname.lastname@example.org), I will send you a request to login as a collaborator from my Shopify Partner account.
That means I can access the back end of your site and make the changes and adjustments that we have agreed to make. That way you don't need to set me up as a "staff account".
Access to a Dropbox or Google Drive
It's much easier for me to work with all of the information in one place instead of combing through my inbox trying to find all the documents. It is also easier for you to see what you have supplied and what needs to be supplied.
I will set you up a Dropbox Folder or Google Drive (whichever you prefer) and send you the link and access to the folder so you can tap away, adding the things from your list at your leisure.
Use of Asana
As part of my new and improved onboarding process, you will be sent a checklist of all the things that need to be added to the Dropbox or Google Drive. You will also be sent a link to an Asana project.
Work on your rebuild won't start until all the required info is available in the Dropbox or Google Drive, as per the timeline in Asana. Then a deposit is required and a date is locked in for your site rebuild to be completed.
Logo and Brand Guidelines
More is more in this case - so please add everything that you got from your graphic designer. This means that I can add logos or word marks where they best fit and I can edit fonts and button colours to better reflect your branding.
If all you have is a logo, that is OK too! The most important thing is a logo without a background so that it looks sleek and sophisticated on the website!
The package price includes the uploading of photos that are uniform in size and optimised for use on a website (usually 800px*800px but no bigger than 2048px*2048px). I can resize your pictures so they are suitable for use on the site but there will be an additional charge for this.
Product photos need to be in .jpg or .png format and the files need to be renamed to match the product names so these can be easily matched. Photos cannot be embedded in other documents or provided via link to a website.
If we agree that updating, editing or refreshing your product descriptions are an area that would add significant value I can give you tips and pointers to write your own descriptions that can be added to the products.
Alternatively I can re-write your descriptions and optimise them for SEO for an additional agreed price (this will depend on information provided and how many products on your site).
Generally I'll need your Facebook and Instagram login to connect these sales channels (so you can tag products on Facebook on Instagram and in your stories), so you'll need to be OK with handing these over too!
If you have questions about what you need to provide, or what this service includes, please feel free to get in touch and we can have a chat.
You will be sent a checklist, as well as a
