Create A New Web Page Mini-Project

Create A New Web Page Mini-Project


hey everyone this is Allison Kessler and
I help heart centered entrepreneurs with their websites and wellness. In this
video I’ll be talking about how you can take a bigger task like creating a new
web page and turn it into smaller bite-sized tasks so that you can
actually complete it so let’s pretend you have on your to-do list that you
need to create a new web page but for some reason this seemingly simple task is
taking forever and you’ve never actually got to it actually it’s just sitting
there and this is because you haven’t broken it down into the smallest pieces.
So I recommend that you turn this into a mini project and break up your bigger
task into smaller tasks with maximum 15 minutes assigned for each task and I
find as because I’m a mom of a toddler that I have to have things broken out
into very small chunks because I work with very small timeframes. So, for
example, let’s say you want to create a new web page and it’s going to be your
about page and you just have it on your to-do list item maybe an Asana or like
some other program Trello or something and you have “create about page” and you
just keep moving it back and moving it back because you’re you just are not
motivated to get there so here’s how I recommend breaking it down into its most
basic parts so write your about page Write My About Page is now a new title
for a mini project and it has a number of to-do lists or items so I will give
you your new to-do list items that you can just check off one by one
I actually have a free checklist to accompany this video so check out the
link below and grab your copy of this free checklist so number one
you need to research other about pages and they need to be similar about pages
as you people in the same space as you are the same industry if possible and
people with the same purpose for their about page. Then number two you need to
create a wireframe for your new page a wireframe is kind of a web designer’s
term for just taking a blank sheet of paper and pretending it’s a web page and
like drawing squares and writing down that section of the page so you kind of
have like header section 1 section 2 section 3 and the footer and and they’re
just like crude squares with whatever the section is title in the middle of
the square but it really helps to organize your page visually as opposed
to just a straight outline Number three you look at the different
sections that you need to create for your page so for example on your about
page you might have three different sections and the top section is how you
help other people and then your second section is your credentials or
qualifications for helping your people and then your third section might be a
tiny little section a couple sentences about you like personal sections like
our personal information I like to go hiking with my toddler something like
that and the fourth section would be you know what’s your call to action on the
page are you going to send them to your newest program or what do you want to do
after they’re done reading your about page and then number four is put on your
to-do list now write each of those sections that you just decided you
needed to write and you break them up into different to-do list tasks. So
you’re not writing the entire page at once you’re going section by section by
section. And then number five is to combine all of the sections into the
whole like a whole document it could be in Word or wherever you like to review
your documents I write a lot in Evernote so I use Evernote and then I can you
know edit it on the go I find out and about and look at the whole page as a
whole and then what you want to do is gather different visuals, graphics, stock
photos or photos of you that you want to have on that page and you want to decide
exactly how you want where they should go and what you want to do
with those those images to complement your content and break it up and make it
easier to read make it look nice. So then at this point you want to get your
website up in draft so that you can send a link out to the draft page to your
supporters so hopefully you have a couple people in my instance I have a
mastermind group that I can just post draft content and then get feedback or
input on and this is a really helpful step but because by this time
let’s say you’re working on your about page you don’t want to look at your
about page ever again so it’s good to get like a different energy different
perspective and somebody else to look at it. And then you want to implement
that feedback, read and review the page one last time and publish it. Now this
really breaks out all of the steps for creating a new webpage and you can see
that that is actually 10 to 12 different to-do list items for creating one single
page so and this is why you’re probably not
completing this you know what should be a simple task and yeah so anyway I have
again you can get the checklist that I’ve created at the link below and also
