If you’re an Atlanta business owner who’s worked with us “creative types” before in terms of web design or development, you may have been frustrated with how the process seemed to drag on and on. While we’re certainly not placing blame, we can honestly say that in some instances, clients get in their own way! As a highly trusted Atlanta web designers, we can tell you that we will complete your project on time. We’ll also let you in on a little secret – there’s lots you can do to help speed the process along.
First, dig deep to provide us with vital information. What are you thinking of in terms of a logo, and are there photos you want to include? Consider the content of your site’s pages, and what you want to accomplish with that content. From specific topics to portraying your brand and how you intend to solve your target clients’ problems, all of this is critical when laying the foundation during the initial development stages. Also, be sure to choose that one contact or “point” person your web design team will be communicating with on all aspects of the project. You know what they say about too many cooks in the kitchen!
Avoid second-guessing. This goes back to the last paragraph. It’s critical, when creating a new website, to know without a doubt exactly what your goal is. Whether it’s getting subscribers to your newsletter, more page views, or building a huge social following – know what your plan is and stick to it. The biggest factors that cause your project to be delayed are not knowing exactly what it is you want, and making constant “little” changes.
Approve or disapprove – but do it now! When your web design team finishes certain elements of your website, the worst thing you can do is to wait for two or three days (or even longer) to give your approval. At each stage in the process, when you get a message or call from your web development team requesting approval, don’t put it off! Prodding or poking clients isn’t something we like to do – and it ultimately slows everything down. Prompt attention to requests for approval will help greatly in completing your project on time!
