Hey guys, as one of my first major projects on my own, I'm wanting to build a website for an electrical contractor who's been around for over 20 years, has high profile clients, but has absolutely zero web presence. One snag I'm running into is coming up with descriptive text to fill out the different sections. I think over time I will get better at it, but I'm just drawing blanks... even when I look at other similar sites for inspiration. When building sites for companies, would you say the developer typically looks for the customer to submit blurbs about their company and it's services? Or is it somewhat up to the developer to fill out these sections? At this point, I'm not working with the contractor, they don't even know I'm doing it...
@piteto Right, I've figured that out
The resolution is really bad
@bacarlino - that's an interesting question. I don't have too much experience doing that type of work. I have some limited experience and have had both things, where there was already "copy" written for the site and I didn't have to worry about it. In another case someone who didn't really know what to do for the site, so I came up with ideas and worked through it with them after they started to think about it. Does this company have any advertising that you can see, or any brochures or pamphlets that you can leverage off of?
@bacarlino Depending on the size of the company, usually whomever you’re working with from the company that’s the stakeholder of the project would provide material from their marketing or PR department for general information about the company.
@bacarlino Since you’re not working with anyone, just throw in some Lorem Epsem or put some generic statements in
Got a question, need some help, I don't understand why my vids are working and why they keep failing in the test room. Any ideas or suggestions?
