5 Things Not To Ask Your Web Developer
Web and Blog Designers get asked so many questions that are just so innaceptible, I thought I would list a few… I sell blog designs, premade ones, I don’t do custom work anymore and I still get asked…
1. How do I..?
How do I use wordpress? How do I add a page?
I am here to design your website, I am not your personal google, you should be googling how to do this stuff, google is god. If you really want to start a blog or website, learn how the basic fundamentals work first.
2. Can you do this for free?
3. Can I pay after my design is finished?
I get it, you work, then you get paid, but if you work in a grocery store can I take the food home, eat it then pay? Web Design takes a lot of work, it can easily be misused or stolen and it cannot be returned.
4. Can you make my site look exactly like [Insert site here] this one?
If you want your website shut down before it has even started, go ahead but I cannot be your partner in crime. Your website defines your brand, your personality and what it represents, copying is not an option and I will not jeopardize my business either.
5. Can you teach me how to change the fonts, logo and design myself?
Okay, Listen up, it took me about 3 years to learn how to design, I am constantly learning about code as it changes dramatically over time and I also have a life outside of work, remember, the Google is your best friend.
