  • Theme approved by you (if new)
  • Portrait image alternatives added as necessary to Title, Text Over Media, Reveal and Background Scrollmation
  • Checked mobile and tablet view of content (in particular use Preview to check image crops, text sizes and nav structure across screens)
  • Pull-quotes and headers used where appropriate for added impact
  • Any custom coding finished and tested
  • Settings fields completed where necessary, including page metadata , Google Analytics and social sharing buttons
  • Navigation added (how-to guide)
  • Checked performance (particularly video sizes)
  • Link added to logo (including http:// or https://)
  • Logical flow and clear, engaging structure
  • Prompt for continued engagement at end. e.g CTA, further sharing or use of a Collection Section
  • Publishing process understood and chosen (publishing options)
