I have the impression that my Wordpress-projects seem to function very differently depending on how the client works with me. Some projects are easy - we select a template, the client accepts that we do not want to change much, delivers text and pictures and there we go. The site can be online within a few days.
At present I have a client that sees himself as an easy project. The project is for a building in a caritative segment and is still in its build-stage. So there are no photos from within the building only some from the construction area and I only have some sketches from the rooms.
The texts that I received are not complete and poorly written.
So when I started with the project I selected a hotel page - then the client wanted different colors, different font, larger font and so on until the design was broken...
After some in-between trying of different approaches that also did not work I came back with another template which works a little better now but same issue. I gave the client access to jumpchart.com, but he never entered something. In the end it was me that had to enter everything in it... useless.
I am so frustrated...
Now my question:
How do you deal with clients regarding your Wordpress projects. Do you always collect text, images and logo upfront?
What are further rules that help you making the implementation of that wordpress-template an easy thing? Avoiding that the client has a thousand little wishes "to get the design right"
I think both of us - the client and me - frustrated right now.
How can I avoid this in the future?
