When starting or revamping your small business website, there is one word that will save you the most time, money, and headaches.
The word? Organization.
Ready to take a simple, but giant leap toward making your business life a whole lot more efficient for yourself (and whoever you’re paying to help with your website)?
Tip 1: Create a Special Folder in “My Documents”
Your website information needs to have a single, designated folder on your computer. Go into your “My Documents” folder and create a new folder called “Website Stuff” or any other name you choose. Everything that has to do with your website, be it images, videos, page content, text files, notes, etc… go into this folder.
Tip 2: Create a Special Folder in Your Email Client/Program/Software
Same theory as Tip 1, but just in a different place. Anything you’ve received via email that has to do with your website should be saved or tagged to this folder for easy access when it’s necessary down the road. This will save you a lot of time later searching for that email from anyone that’s interacted with you regarding the development of your website.
Tip 3: Get a Notebook
Sure, we live in a digital age. But, keeping a simple, old school notebook that is dedicated to the organization of your website is invaluable. Write down all your usernames and passwords, as well as notes, brainstorming ideas, and useful websites you’ve come across in your notebook. It’s perfect for simple reference and you’ll be glad you did if your computer crashes down the road.
Take a moment now and take care of these three simple organizational tips. You’ll be well on your way to less stress and greater returns with your website and online presence.
