sketch-926667_1280

Building a website for a client comes with many different challenges. One of the most critical for any web designer is facilitating an effective communication process between the client and the web designer.

In order to be successful in this area, here’s some great tips that can assist with the web designer and client relationship.

Web Designers Must Create an Active Listening Environment

It’s not uncommon for people to be involved in a conversation where one of the parties are not really listening to the things that the other person is saying. In fact, these are often times when a person may feel that they are simply talking to a break wall. Though some people may not be aware of the other person perceiving that this is occurring, this type of action can easily picked up by others when it happens to them.

To avoid these problems in a web designer/client relationship, it is essential that the web designer, with purpose, learn how to actively listen to the client. For instance, the designer should make sure that they are seeking to understand every thing that the client is saying, and they should make sure that are responding to the client by either answering their questions verbally or by the nodding of the head. In either case, the web designer should make sure that they are showing that they are actually listening by remaining engaged throughout the conversation.

Web designers should Be Aware of the differences in the Client’s technical knowledge

It is important to note that some clients are very well versed in web design practices and procedures, while others may be very limited in what they know. Because previous and current knowledge is a huge factor in communicating effectively, the web designer should always take this in consideration when speaking one on one, and in the actual development of client presentations. Which means, the web designer should make sure that they are familiar with how much the client knows about web design development prior to getting started. Two of the best ways to survey a client’s knowledge is to either ask them directly about their knowledge base. Or, to look for contact clues in the client’s expressions that says that they do or do not understand what’s being said about their web design development project.

Anticipate Client Responses and Questions

There are many ways to improve the communications between the web designer and the client. One of the best ways is for the web designer to anticipate the clients needs prior to the meetings that have been established. Even though the client may have a long list of questions that they may asks, when the web designer works hard enough, they can anticipate most or all of the questions that the client will have. For instance, if the web designer is addressing certain technical problems about the design of their site, the web designer can prepare themselves in advance by writing down any potential problems and the responses that they will provide to the client.

Communicating effectively with any client can be challenging. However, there are numerous ways to improve communications on a regular basis. Three of the top recommendations consists of creating an active listening environment, being aware of the differences in technical knowledge and anticipating the client’s needs.

I have clients in almost all corners of the world, and as a website designer, I strive to stay connected with all of them. What’s important for me is the ability to present them with my portfolio of work, my contact information, and my CV all in one spot. Social media just doesn’t give me that option, at least not in one place. At any time of the day or not, a potential client can find me and review my past designs.

If I wanted to open a taxi service, I would open a taxi service. I’m a tow truck driver, but lots of people treat me like a taxi driver anyway. I literally had this one woman who wanted me to take her to several different stops so she could do her errands as if the car hadn’t broken down. Anything for a customer I say, and I did it. I took her home as she had bags of groceries on her lap.

Last year, Josephine and her parents visited South Africa and during one afternoon, they visited a small massage shop. They requested two oil massage called nuru and two-foot massage. When it came to Josephine, an oil massage begins, she lay on her stomach and gets massages on her back, shoulder and legs. Then she clips over, and it continues to the arms, and front of the legs, face and head. But the situation becomes weird and unbearable when the massage therapist didn’t provide Josephine with a small towel to cover her breast since she was topless. Some customers around the room were able to see Josephine’s nakedness including her parents only that they were embarrassed and forced to close their eyes.

A website is defined as a collection of web pages. A web page is a pops up on the screen when a web address is typed, clicked or when a query is inserted in a search engine. The web page that pops up can contain a variety of information, it can have written text, graphics, color, sound, and animation. When people give you their web address, it will take you to their website and from there you can see what services they offer or what information they are passing across. Web development has evolved over time, but some are still stuck in the mad. Some of these websites include the following:

Uglytub.com

Now are you planning or thinking on how you should replace your old bathtub? Log in to this website and you will realize that it will never persuade you to do otherwise. Its images are of poor quality, it has tiny fonts and garish colors, its frames are not well developed because they minimize the site to a small window that pops up in the center of the screen. This website can offend its users.

Mrbottles.com

Have you ever thought of collecting bottles? This website will end your career. If we put aside the pillar-box red typeface that it has, its background clashes with a variety of bottle pictures that are of poor quality. Happy pictures of bottle owners are also in circulation, but the quality of the images will make you regret why you logged in to the site.

Jamilin.com

This website is too congested with images, videos, adverts, and links. This enormous supply of text and images give a browser little time or no clear way to navigate in the page, making it boring.

Wholsesalemeatscoventry.com

It’s far much well designed than the above sites. It contains imagery that gives the purpose of the website. Now, if you don’t have any idea about the company, the many floating pictures of raw meat might give you a taste of what you are about to witness. But you will have to spend more time on the page hence suffer the shame of scrolling past numerous pieces of floating pieces of meat to reach the useful information on the bottom of the page.

Gatesnfences.com

It’s a company that is based in Florida. It decided to be stuck in the past by bombarding users with a lot of information on the homepage. It’s small but low-quality images are scattered everywhere. There is also no tool that breaks up a large amount of text, it inevitably hurts!

Pennyjuice.com

This site starts off with a page that asks “Who is Penny Juice?” It also has so many colors that give no explanation. Where did they take the navigation tabs? Sorry, they are not there, meaning you can’t navigate around. Although it has a picture of a baby on top, it turns out to be comical.

Bolenreport.com

One of the old school web designed website is here. It crams a lot of information on the site with four full-featured articles on the homepage. It will make you sleep.

007museum.com

We have lived to love James Bond, who we know as a charming, secret agent in the silver screens. Where they got the designer for the James Bond Museum is highly questionable. Its background is stuck with Times New Roman typeface with crowded menus, hyperlinks, and random imagery. It does not echo the character of Bond himself.

Arngren.net

Visit this site and you will have no clue of what you are looking for, it’s genuinely baffling. Scroll down the page and what you will see is the same cut-and-paste poor quality images with links attached. It contains a search box at the top but try to use it, and you get lost.

Rudgwicksteamshow.co.uk

This website does not have your time because it seems to be busy all the time. It has a lot of imagery with primary colored fonts hence difficult to find useful information. It’s hell for users.

These ten websites need to be redefined or otherwise they will mislead users with their junk information that is not useful. Owners of these sites don’t feel offend but gear up to redesign them if they can.
