We’re one email away

Tasks that are outside the scope of our support team
How we work
Emailing your requests:
Kindly direct all requests to the email address your project manager provides your team
One email per request, please:
To avoid any hiccups in our workflow, send each request in a separate email. Bundling multiple edits in one email can create a bottleneck and slow us down.
Adding the URL of the page helps us find what you need and saves us from bugging you! For example:
- yoursite.com | Change the font in the home hero section
- yoursite.com/services/shoelace-tying | Replace the sales text in section 2
- yoursite.com/products/unicorn-repellent | Update the product photos
- yoursite.com/news | Convert this Word document into a news article or blog post
The more information, the better:
To minimise back-and-forth, provide as many details as possible. Screenshots, videos, error numbers, and thorough descriptions are all very helpful!
Text format matters:
When sending written content for posting or updating, please ensure it’s in a format we can easily copy and paste—no screenshots or images, please.
Don’t forget your files:
Remember to include any files you’d like uploaded, such as images, recordings, and so on.
Content Edit Tasks
Publishing Blog Posts and New Pages:
We’ll share your latest recipes or event announcements using the Word or Text documents you provide.
Count on us to update product descriptions, change opening hours, or make other text modifications on your posts, pages, or products.
Uploading and Adding Images:
Send us your new product images or staff photos, and we’ll incorporate the provided JPG and PNG files into your site.
We’ll make sure your banner image looks perfect on your page by adjusting it within the website dashboard
*Please note: The dev team can only crop imagery within your website itself. We’re terrible at Photoshop, but our graphic design and ux/ui team can always step in at an hourly rate for more complex work.
Updating SEO Elements:
With guidance from your or Smashed Avo’s SEO team, we’ll update your keywords, titles, and snippets to enhance search visibility.
