Tips for uploading content to Google Drive

For Mallard Bay listings and website information, it's important to pay attention to the photo aspect ratio. The photos used for the website work best when they're of the best quality and are in a 16:9 aspect ratio(horizontal). This helps to ensure that the photos are displayed properly and look their best on the website.In addition to photos, there's also the Website Content document. This document outlines how what you upload will be used for each individual page on the website. The more information you provide in this document, the more information the team can provide for your hunt/fish packages and the rest of the pages on the website. This helps to ensure that all the information is up-to-date and accurate, making it easier for potential customers to find the information they need.
