How tricky can it be?
For this blog entry I'm going to direct to another site.
But before I send you on your merry way, let me explain a bit.
On Twitter (do you follow me on there, if not why? Follow me now!) one of the people I follow is another web designer called Paul Boag. Paul is big in the world of the web and he does great podcasts, blogs, tweets etc. A while back, he asked for suggestions for titles for his next blog. I (rather cheekily I thought) sent him this title "The client says ‘oh it can’t be that tricky’ – How often is this true?"
Imagine my surprise (and big smiley face) when he replied back with "Love it. Will you write it?" I was a bit taken back but I put fingers to keyboard and I was pretty pleased with the finished article.
You can read it at GetSignOff. Now don't say "oh it's not for me, I don't do web design" - because you'd be wrong. It's all about managing client expectations, project managment and communication. What ever sort of business you run, I'm sure there are aspects of it that you will be able to apply to your own life.
So now, off you go to GetSignOff and read my article. Leave a comment there too if you are so inclined.
