By Stefan | WordPress | No Comments

It doesn’t matter if you are professional or just a beginner in the business, your main goal is to create a website which will fit your clients perfectly. But it isn’t easy to create such site. We would like to introduce you five questions which answers will be good helpers for every WordPress developer. Answer this question in the very beginning and you will create a website of your client’s dream.

1. What is the purpose of a website you create?

First of all you should ask your client why he or she wants to have his or her own website. It seems obvious but steel this question is very important. Many people, even those who already have websites, have no idea what function their websites perform. If your client can’t answer this question it will be impossible to create a perfect website for him or her even with WordPress.

 

2. What your website visitors should do?

The second question seems obvious too but not all of your clients will know the answer. On one website people can only get the main information about some company and on another they can buy goods. These two sites are completely different and they are creating in different way. So if you do not know what exactly visitors will be doing on a website you won’t be able to create one.

 

3. What about budget?

Everyone should understand that our wishes and our abilities are completely different things. That is why this is so important to know what exactly your client wants and what amount of money she or he is ready to spend. Most of your client has no idea what the budget is and how much your work costs. It is better to have actual prices on all of your services on your own website which will help your potential client to understand how much money they will pay. Don’t be afraid of asking about budget. It will be hard in the beginning but also will help you to get rid of problematic clients.

 

4. Have ever word with WordPress before?

There are some reasons why this question is so important. First of all, you should be honest with yourself and your clients about your experience and knowledge. Your client can have no idea what is WordPress but in her or his company can be a person who knows about it a lot. And who will understand if you lei about your experience. Secondly, if you know WordPress pretty well you will understand in the very begging if you can work with some project or not. It will save a lot of your money and your reputation. Thirdly, some of your clients will be sure that they can do your job much better than you. You can ask them about their experience with WordPress , talk about some details and nuances. This will put everything in its place.

 

5. What examples your client can show?

This is the last question but it doesn’t mean it is less important than previous. Examples are the best way for many people to explain what exactly they want, especially if they don’t know anything about WordPress. Most of your clients don’t know special terminology and they can’t explain you many details which they want to have on the website. So ask them to find at least three sites which they like. Also ask them why they like these websites.
