WordCamp Video Highlight 2017/08/11

“This wouldn’t be a bad job if I didn’t have to deal with CLIENTS!”

Although my work with WordPress is limited to my work and personal websites, I do hear people talking about client work at WordCamps. Terms that are tossed around like “make it pop”, “feel free to be creative”, “I’ll fax you some ideas that I have” and many other statements can give designers and developers nightmares.

I picked two videos that talk about working with clients and steps that can be taken to ease the pain.

Nathan Ingram: Dealing With Problem Clients

Spend time talking with a group of freelancers and the conversation will inevitably include someone’s unfortunate experience with a terrible client. Most freelancers have a story or two (or eight). While bad clients can’t be completely avoided, there are strategic steps any freelancer can take to contain the impact of a bad client. In this session, Nathan will explain the how to create a system that preserves workflow and keeps problem clients in check.
