Many web designing and development firms often struggle to meet project deadlines when they are assigned a web design/development project. Some of them get stress out when it comes to meet deadlines and do not focus on quality and creativity.
Some clients ask their developers to submit the designing project on time due to their strict launch schedule for example if one has to launch a brand or a restaurant they need the designing and development process done at a faster rate. While some clients are in no rush to complete the project, it gives the designers and developers little comfort with the deadlines.
Web design process should be systematic
There are many phases involved in process. The entire project goes through collection of images, writing content, coding etc at the same time. The in-house team is always on work while they are working on different aspects in designing and development.
When there are so many phases involved in the entire process it has to be systematic in order to avoid complications both at initial and final stages.
Some clients take time to approve the website design and until and unless the designers get the approval for a particular website design from the client it is not possible to upload the content. So, everything should go according to the process which means process-oriented projects are more successful than the ones that goes without a proper format and timelines.
Realistic approach towards deadlines
When you are working for the clients do not make false promises. A realistic approach is always better. Make sure you give the right deadlines to your clients so that they understand it better and do not expect more than promised from you.
The below mentioned tips can help you meet the deadlines
- Be transparent and clear with the expectations right at the initial stages of the project. Set deadlines that you can meet and accordingly be clear with the upfront charges.
- In case you feel you need 3 days to complete a task then give a deadline of 5 days so that in case are any issues that rise later you can correct in the extended period.
- For clients they should approach the designers if they have any doubts so that the process runs smoothly.
Do not waste time
As a designer or developer it is always better to complete your task on time and do not delay the process of website and development. If you follow the process it will save your time and will not let you waste time. Meeting deadlines is important as it gains the trust of your clients.
Do not miss on creativity
Creativity goes hand in hand with web design and development process and thus designers should maintain the quality and try to introduce creativity in each and every assignment.
Friendly relationship between client and designing team
It is important to build a friendly relationship with your client or your designing team. It is always important to work with your designers as well as clients so that the process goes smoothly. As a client you should not push the designing team to finish the work faster as it can overburden the designing team and they may not be able to deliver quality work. As a designing team you should not make your client wait for a long time than the deadlines. It is a process that should be handled with mutual co-operation and concern.
When web designing project is taken up it should be worked upon sincerely so that client gets what they want. Also the clients should not ask for too many revisions rather they should discuss and plan a proper web design with the team so that the entire process is completed on time.
You can come up with your own ideas or as a team you can suggest ideas to your clients so that both sides are happy. Do not choose a complicated web design just because it seems attractive as the site also needs to be fully functional and free of errors when it is live.
Project deadlines are important for the client as well as the designing team. The entire designing team should make sure that they do their job on time and deliver the best. No matter how professional a website design is but if not submitted within given deadlines can have a negative impact on the clients business and certainly you may lose your reputation.
