- Once you have filled out the form above we need to get you started on DROPBOX so that you can store all the files for your website somewhere we can both access with ease.
Using the Dropbox application is really convenient and fast. In fact, using Dropbox on your computer is just like using any other folder on your hard drive, except the files you drag into your Dropbox folder automatically sync online and to any other computers or mobile devices linked to your account.
- I will send you an email invitation to dropbox and all you need to do it follow the instructions in the email. Once that is done please drop all your photos and website content into the folder I have created for you and then work can begin!
Websites I have done or am currently working on…you will will notice these are smaller budget non database driven sites, quick and easy to maintain yourself which makes them affordable.
