Hello there and welcome to 4 Days To Fewer Revisions + Happy Design Clients! This mini-course is created specifically to help you ditch extra (annoying) revisions and end web design projects with happier clients
From what I’ve experienced myself and heard from just about every designer out there, the two hardest parts of a web design project are getting the content you need to get started and getting projects wrapped up and approved.
Not having your revision process go nice and smoothly can make the end feel like it’s dragging on forever and you don’t want to see even one more notification or email come in from your client.
But I’m a firm believer in fixing what’s broken within a process. No part of your projects should make you want to pull your hair out every single time.
So what causes revisions to go on and on and for clients to never seem happy? There are a few things:
- Every once in awhile you’ll run into the type of person who just can’t be pleased, but we’ll skip them here.
- It could be your actual process and the way your revisions work. It could just need a few simple tweaks!
- It could be that you’re missing the part of your process where you really make sure your designs matter and will get your clients results.
- It could be that your client doesn’t understand your design decisions and think they know best so they have more revision requests than they would otherwise.
- Or, it could be the way you’re presenting those designs to your clients.
These are all possible reasons your revision process could be a bit more difficult than it needs to be. It’s also exactly what we’ll go over in these trainings!
Here’s how I suggest you go through the content:
- Take it one day at a time. These trainings are fairly short and you could sit and binge them all, but you’d likely find yourself overwhelmed in the end. Instead, watch one video, do the action steps, and give yourself a day or two to process before moving onto the next video.
- Utilize the workbook. At the bottom of this page, you’ll find a workbook that follows the material each day. It’s fillable so you can choose to either print it out or use it right on your computer (just be sure to download and save it outside of your web browser). Using this workbook will allow you to take notes and go back once you’re done to remember what action steps you still have to take.
- Make an action plan. Once you’ve gone through the content, make a plan of action for moving forward. Use the Revision Survival Guide (which you’ll get in Day 4) to outline your tasks and get them on your calendar (or Trello, if you’re like me).
I can’t wait for you to get started and make your revision process a whole lot easier. Grab your workbook below and dive into Day 1!
