As a Showit website designer, it’s important that my clients have an amazing website design experience. Knowing what to expect and what’s to be expected is the foundation of any successful business relationship. Today I’m sharing a few tips that have helped projects with my clients run smoothly.
You’re new to this website game, so you’re going to have questions. Not sure if a certain feature will work with Showit? Need clarification on the process?
Don’t be afraid to ask. In fact, I encourage my clients to ask as many questions as they can think of. I want to make sure that you’re completely comfortable and knowledgeable of the design process.
Providing clear and constructive feedback about the work created by your website designer is super important. Being specific helps your designer clearly understand where and what changes you would like to have made.
Avoid vague feedback like, “I’m not sure about this section”. Instead tell them exactly what you’re not sure about – whether it’s the colour, content design, photos, etc. Your designer wants to make sure you are in love with the final design and that your clients will, too!
Nothing is more confusing than having multiple messages from multiple people. If you’re working as part of a team, gather all feedback and send it in one email. This is way less overwhelming for your designer. It also means, by all feedback going through one contact, everyone on your team is aware of any edits being made. Imagine thinking your website is going to look one way, then it looks completely different because a member of your team was sending their own ideas.
It’s so much easier to receive one message, with all points in it, as opposed to multiple messages on varying topics. Maybe write thoughts down as they come and at the end of the day send one message. When it comes to providing feedback on the design, I provide my clients with one feedback form per round of edits. This way I can make sure I check everything off and nothing’s getting lost in dozens of email threads.
Along with having one point of contact, having one form of communication makes a project flow much easier. Try to communicate with your designer using the preferred method of contact. Whether it’s email or a system like Dubsado or Honeybook, this will help streamline your communication.
I use Dubsado for all my client communication. This way no messages get lost in my inbox, and it also houses documents like contracts and content info in one place.
Those are my top tips to have an amazing web design experience so you can launch the website of your dreams!
