“Can you please send me through your logins to your website, host, domain name registrar and all of the bits that relate to your website, and then we can get started on your project.”
“Um. I have to go back through my emails to see if I kept them. Give me a minute.”
An hour later.
“I found my website login email, but I don’t know where my website is hosted or who my domain name registrar is. I will have to get in touch with my old web designer to see if they know. The problem is they dropped off the planet to go backpacking in Uzbekistan, and I am not sure they will answer my email.”
Every client we have ever worked with has had a variation of this conversation.
We totally get that every person genuinely means to do the right thing with their website and online presence, but then life happens, and things get lost.
We understand what it is like when you are getting a new website built (or if you are making one yourself). There are so many moving parts and so many questions.
You get frustrated and overwhelmed all at the same time, and you mean to jot things down, but you are just so freaking grateful to get the website finally done and launched that it slips your mind.
Time passes, and then you forget all about having done or needing all your login details – until something goes horribly, gut-wrenchingly, wrong.
You race around in a panic, trying to retrace your steps and scroll through thousands of emails trying to find where things may have been written down.
Sometimes you are lucky and can find the needles in the haystack.
Sometimes you have to pester people you detest with a passion (and had vowed never to speak with again), on the hope they may still have your records and take pity on you (and not bill you the national debt of a small country just to give you these details).
That’s why all our clients get detailed booklets with all of their online details rounded up for them at the end of their projects with us.
We want to make their lives just that little bit easier for the future!
What about you?
Do you know how to log into your online presences? All of them? Are you sure?
Can you quickly put your hands on the details for your website hosting, domain name registrar, website login, theme renewal, paid plugin list and renewal dates, autoresponder, Stripe, PayPal and all of the hundreds of bits that go into making your website work?
Do you have the phone numbers and email addresses printed out somewhere so you can contact people in case your computer gets locked up by ransomware at 2 am, and you can’t access anything?
Would having all of this information rounded up make your life just that little bit easier and less stressful?
