Client Conversation

  • CLIENT:

    I need you to finish this website by tomorrow.

  • ME:

    Okay, can I have the login information so I can edit the site?

  • CLIENT:

    No, we’re not allowed to give out our passwords to non-employees.

  • ME:

    So you need me to edit the site without logging into the site?

  • CLIENT:

    Yes. By tomorrow.

Client Conversation

  • CLIENT:

    I want us to be in the top three on Google Searches for x.

  • ME:

    I can’t guarantee it, but I’ll rewrite the text to feature the right keywords and start building incoming links.

  • I do the work and three weeks later:

  • CLIENT:

    We’re not in the top three. In fact, we’re worse off than before.

  • ME:

    Wow, that’s strange. Let me look at the site again.

  • The site has none of my text on it. Replacing all of it are images, some with non-related text in them.

  • ME:

    This isn’t the text I wrote…

  • CLIENT:

    Yeah, I thought it was too wordy. I don’t like words. I want people to come to the site and see all these images and relate.

  • ME:

    But… people search using words, not images. How is Google supposed to know your site is about x if you changed it?

  • CLIENT:

    Well, that was why I got you to do your SEO on it. But it isn’t working.

Client Conversation

  • I received an outline Friday afternoon stating that my final copy was expected Monday morning.

  • Me:

    I’m sorry, but I don’t work weekends. I can have it by Wednesday.

  • Client:

    But I thought you work from home?

  • Me:

    … Yes.

  • Client:

    So if you’re at home, you can be working!

Client Conversation

  • Client:

    Now, for the website, we don’t want anything too fancy.

  • Me:

    Fancy how?

  • Client:

    Like images and text.

  • Me:

    What do you want then?

  • Client:

    You tell me! You’re the designer! Just don’t put images and text on the site!
