How to make a website without having a client dictate everything

Today we inaugurate the launch of a new guide composed of a series of articles that focus on clients, invoices, drafts as well as on other things. This guide is highly recommended, especially if you’re new to all of this, and you will be able to learn about new theoretical notions as well as being able to learn how to work in an organized way. If instead you’re a professional, you can always find it helpful to discover other techniques. The articles in this guide will be published on a weekly basis: this means that our course will continue for the next ten weeks.

Which topics will be discussed?

In these ten lessons, we will cover all of the necessary steps needed to design and publish a web project, starting with what to do on the first meeting with a client to the final check that is done on the integrity of a website before its official launch.

Here is a list of the topics that will be covered:

  1. How to understand the client’s needs on the first encounter?
  2. How to calculate costs and delivery time of a web project?
  3. How to develop and organize the structure of a website?
  4. How to find inspiration and design the layout of a website?
  5. How to present the graphic draft to the client?
  6. How to make the internal pages after the draft’s approval?
  7. How to export a psd into xhtml and css without losing your soul? (part1) (part 2)
  8. How to index a website without being SEO experts? (part 1) (part 2)
  9. How to make sure of not having committed errors before launching the website online?

    The web is a place made up of differing and complex individuals, whereby each of them collaborates in a precise way and continuous on the various phases that make up a project. Each role is essential and well delineated, and every individual shares his or her professional competencies in order to create a great product.

    Whatever your skill –web or graphic designer, web developer or other – working as a professional in this field requires technical competencies and an organizational capacity of great nature.

    We will now return to the first lesson in our guide which relates to a very important point that is not to be underestimated: Based on a first encounter, how will I know what my client’s needs are?
