I’ve written posts encouraging you to outsource tasks and get help with all of the items on you plate in your design business. In this post, I’m giving you a full breakdown of what I outsource and how I’ve made it easy.
A while back I wrote about figuring out when you’re ready to work with a developer. There was a section in that post about having a clear project process. When it comes to project processes, timelines are a big part of it.
Having your timeline down and accurately scheduled will allow you to book clients in advance and do so accurately. Even though it’s not something you can sit down and do right at this moment, with a little bit of time and review, you can build an estimated project timeline to help you with booking out your calendar.
Are you looking to book more clients for your business? You may be marketing your services all over Instagram with little return or finding that you lose prospects during the inquiry process.
Whatever you’ve tried in the past, this post will cover 4 simple to make booking prospective web design clients a little easier.
At the time of writing this post for you all, I’ve been doing development for designers specifically for about two years. And when I’m chatting with a designer about potentially teaming up, I get a lot of questions. The most common question I get is, “How do I know when it’s time to hire a developer?”
This is a concern that comes up a lot in business, no matter what you’re doing or who you’re hiring. It can be hard to know the right time to start something. Like when to use a new piece of software or when it’s time to invest in a coach.
While none of these questions have a “right” answer, I’ll do my best to help you decide if it’s time to outsource the development of your web design projects.
When it comes to a new client project, the onboarding process is the most complicated and time-consuming part of it all. There’s the initial part of deciding whether the client is a good fit, waiting for a proposal to be accepted, getting the contract signed, invoiced paid and all of the setup that comes after that.
It’s a lot to remember and work through. That’s why having a simple onboarding process for web design projects is so important. You’ve got to keep in mind though, that just because the final process is going to be simple, it doesn’t mean creating it will be.
This isn’t going to be a one-sitting setup, but I promise you, it’s 100% worth it. Take it from someone whose onboarding process used to take 5+ hours (yes, it was me).
You’ve put your heart and soul into your business. You’ve pulled all-nighters, spent extra time getting that thing “just right”, and sacrificed countless movie marathons with friends because you had a deadline to meet.
Sure, you’ve found something you are passionate about and love what you do… most of the time. It can be tough to give all you’ve got and feel like you’re not getting the return you are expecting. I’ve been there.
It’s no longer enough to sell a pretty website. If you want clients to pay more than a few hundred dollars, you need to sell the results your designs get. However, we all know that this is easier said than done!
Today we’ll cover the 3 secrets to a website that converts for your design clients! Let’s get into it, shall we?
There comes a time in business where you want to take on fewer projects, but make the same amount of money. Or you may want to increase your revenue altogether! One of the quickest solutions for both of those is to increase your prices and charge more for your design projects!
