  • Nile Flores: Teaching Your Clients How to Use WordPress

    Nile Flores: Teaching Your Clients How to Use WordPress

    WordCamp Orlando 2015Speaker: Nile Flores

    January 20, 2016 — You’ve probably seen it happen- someone complains because they just got a website, but they don’t know how to use it. Their designer or developer or project manager just left them high and dry without some type of direction or documentation.

    Let’s face it, as a designer or developer or project manager, you’re definitely going to run into someone who isn’t really that familiar with WordPress. In fact, you’ll encounter all sorts of user levels when it comes to working with clients. How do you teach your client how to use their WordPress website? How do you figure it into your project’s scope? If you don’t like teaching them, what can you do to make sure your relationship with your client ends on a good note because you were diligent to give them the tools they need to continue on their own?

    I’ll be going over strategies to help you put together a plan on teaching your clients how to use WordPress. Let’s decrease the frustration together and allow your clients to become enthusiastic WordPress users that are making money.

  • Valerie Adler: Your Website? It’s Not For You!

    Valerie Adler: Your Website? It’s Not For You!

    WordCamp Edinburgh 2015Speaker: Valerie Adler

    January 8, 2016 — The hardest thing for many clients to understand is the PURPOSE of their website… who it’s for (their customers) and what it’s supposed to do (attract new or more business). In SEO terms, the most important thing is the matter of relevance. Valerie asks: relevant to what, relevant to whom?

    Understanding one’s client is the key to knowing how to present the content of the site. In this session, Valerie will discuss the importance of defining business objectives and identifying one’s target audience in creating content that both engages that audience AND satisfies Google’s directives on creating an SEO-friendly website.

  • Kevin Moser: Happy Clients, Outstanding Outcomes

    Kevin Moser: Happy Clients, Outstanding Outcomes

    WordCamp Omaha 2015Speaker: Kevin Moser

    November 2, 2015 — As web designers and developers, we often focus on the technical aspects of our jobs. Unfortunately, many of us struggle with an important part of a project – communication with our clients. It is an often overlooked piece of the puzzle, but it is directly correlated with outcomes and how the client feels we did our job. In this talk, we will look at communicating with clients and managing expectations in three broad phases of a project – pitching/planning, development, and launching/troubleshooting. Specifically, we will look at steps that will make the client feel involved and important. This level of involvement and communication will help keep clients happy through the entire process, giving us an outstanding outcome.
