We have created a list of questions that you need to ask clients before starting a website designing and development project. By getting the answers, we will also get clarity as to what is the client’s requirement. 1.Name of your domain? This is the very first step to know as to what is your domain name as this would help you to know if you have to work on the existing domain or buy a new one for them and accordingly you’ll pitch about your project. 2. Is there a tagline associated with your Logo? tagline and logo are very important, so you need to raise this point as to do they have just logo or both, so you’ll accordingly focus on the content and designing. Usually, clients with tagline have a vision behind the service they provide so it’s very important to know if they have or not so accordingly you can decide things during designing and development of the website. 3. What is the main objective behind launching this website? Before you try to understand your client’s motivation, you need to understand their own. the potential client may want a website because of their need to keep up with their competition or just because they need to spend some amount of money before the year-end. Whatever be the client’s answer to “what is the main objective behind the new website” maybe, you’re going to ask several more “whys and whats” to get to their motivations. 4. List a few websites of your competitors This is a great question because this helps you to understand their style they like but at the same time, it’s a good chance to know what works for the competition. According to the collected data and research, you make some final suggestions which could get you on good books. 5. List a few websites you like This need not be their competitor, as the client may like some of the websites designed and developed which may be from different fields so it helps us to know news things and designs, etc. 6. Do you have a hosting server or the domain of your business? Just like the name of the domain if the client already has a hosting plan or are they looking to purchase, so you need to know whether that will be done by you’ll or not. 7. Describe your business in brief The major problem that comes up with website projects is because of miscommunication between what the client wants and what the developer thinks the client does. Do a bit of research before meeting the potential client but also ask them about their business in detail as we cannot take the current website as a base and decide things and that’s why they want a new website. 8. What pages do you think needs to be there in the website according to your business? Don’t forget to ask this question, as you may think a page or two doesn’t matter much but in case of developing it takes a lot of time so it’s important to ask the client as to what all web pages they want on their website so accordingly, you know what all content, images are needed and how much time would be allowed for it. 9. List your complete product line. In case the client deals with any specific product then we should be knowing it so they should provide all the details of the product they deal with so we can focus on them and we know what product are we exactly dealing with. 10. Who would be your target audience? Another highly important question to be asked is what target audience are they looking to focus on, as this will tell you what kind of people the client wants to reach out to. so please ask the client to specify additional information about their target audience like the Age group, Industry, Nationality, Tastes, etc?. A site designed for college students and office employees would look completely different as a response to things that vary from person to person. 12. Do You Have a Brand Color or any color Palette? This looks very easy but it’s not as you have to ask two questions as to do you have any specific colors and fonts that you want us to focus on? Do you want us to use the same color on the new website too? You need to ask this as a new website often comes when the company decides to rebrand itself so they may be looking for a change then their old one so you will have to build the design with new elements altogether. if they go with the same color and font then you need to look for such fonts that are not easily available hence this question is a little trickier. 13. Do you have a soft copy of your company Logo? (Vector Image preferred) It is a very vital question, like the website, can not be made without the logo as logo portrays you as a brand and also help for brand building over a while so ask the client if they can provide the soft copy of their company logo like in the following format: Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw or EPS so then we will be able to use it or else we need to create a whole new logo with our designers. it’s better to ask to avoid any kind of awkward communication like do the logo in the same retainer. 14. Please provide any images you would like included on your website. Without images, the website looks very boring and baseless so it’s important to have images on the website so do ask the client if they have any existing images or do you’ll need to buy the paid ones or how is it. so when you start with the website developing and designing, you need not ask if it is paid or free if they are willing to spend.

I believe that I am extremely blessed to be able to contribute as much as I can to those in need. The organization that has given me the opportunity and I am very closely associated with is “Children’s Cancer Care”, an NGO that a couple of people and I started about 2 years ago! Keeping our vision in mind to raise a huge amount of funds for the underprivileged children under the age of 15 who have been detected with cancer, we decided on creating a website and keeping it up-to-date to successfully guide those who wish to donate to these little ones. With an association with TATA Memorial Hospital, we have been able to raise more than Rs 50 lakhs that is all directed for the children’s treatment purposes. Though the number of children at the hospital is quite large, we’ve been able to successfully reach out to only 43 children and provided the financial support that was required for their treatments. We try to reach out to donors from time to time to bring together as many resources as we can to help the children and their families. Many people do have the urge to move forward and help but sometimes don’t know how and whether the little they are able to impart is going to be enough. A separate account is created between the hospital and the families of the child where all the money is directly transferred. The thing, I believe that sets us apart from all the other NGOs is the fact that funds are just used for treatments, there is no admin cost that is charged nor a donation percentage that goes to us. All the funds collected go to the child in need. For everybody reading this who feel the urge to donate and wish to give it back, do visit the website: https://www.childrenscancercare.org/ to help the little ones who deserve to live a healthy life as much as we do!
The most stereotypical belief about clients is that they are made only for billing amounts! We all have fun at the workplace, in the meeting, around the dining table (actually, you can say everywhere you can think of). Having fun in the workplace is vivid, this fun is the fun of having a job, it’s a good thing, it’s comforting in a way! I call it “The fun of work”. Trust me, work can indeed and honestly feel something very much like fun. When you are working well when you are engaged, involved, challenged and interested. What you do becomes what you love to do, something that makes you forget the crazy you do when you are bored or stressed and find yourself completely into the job at your hand. This may not be just a ‘Ha-ha’ kind, but it is fun the genuine fun, deep real fun. The fun of work is being a part of a really good meeting where everyone is participative and ‘Listen’ to one another, everyone has something to contribute. Having fun at the workplace makes you feel together, individually and collectively. You listen to each other more closely, to yourselves more closely. You build the team. The most fun places to work are the place where the fun is upheld, shared and supported. Anyone can have fun, but the company to be fun itself, the top-level has to not recognize fun but has to have fun. Recognize what fun means to your company, your employees and the work. There is a kind of freedom in the fun, the freedom that gives you opportunities to learn from each other, to find like-minds, and to connect, build a relationship. Remember, informality is always better than a formality. A buffet is more fun than a banquet. A bunch of learning centers is more fun than a lecture. Give them things to do together. Lots of things. Different things. Think kindergarten.
The most stereotypical belief about clients is that they are made only for billing amounts! We take immense pride in sharing our views as to how we never look at our clients from that perspective. We look for those with whom we can work not only now but also in the coming years. We have always believed in providing the exact information that a client needs to know, even when it comes to the services they must take and money that they don’t really need to spend. We have come to realize that honesty is one thing that can help you maintain good relations with the clients and that making it clear what expectations are achievable and what is not. The best way, we believe to be at par with the client is to share a road map with them on the first day itself of what can be expected and how do we decide to work on a particular thing so that it gets easier for them to benchmark our performance over the months. With time, we have realized that people are too impatient with digital media and they need to see quick results for the money they have decided on spending. Unable to understand that offline and online media work differently and there is a possibility of many things going wrong in an advertisement than one reason being that the agency has not placed it well. Practices as that of suggesting high media spends and quoting high retainer amount for a small job makes the clients weary about picking an agency to handle their digital media. A lot of time of the clients gets wasted in deciding whether to switch an agency as they are very apprehensive to choose another one after being cheated by one of those agencies who’re out there to make a quick buck. We really want to give our clients, our partners a reason to maintain a long-term relationship with us and we want to provide them with a road map and make them understand that results can’t be seen overnight but can be built over a period of time. The agencies need to build a frame where the client can trust and believe them for the work they do. That’s what really defines the best relation for us, the relationship where there are trust and support for one another. We have come across those clients who’s senior management has moved to another agency and they have made sure that we get in there because they trust and believe in us so much. People are very reluctant to change agencies and we have had clients who believe in us enough to challenge that. That’s what it means to maintain a strong relationship with them as they know that we end we up changing our strategies for the better and we keep working on providing the best of quality. We strongly believe in choosing trust over a small-term gain or a quick buck and that’s how we really intend to work.
