This is a REALLY good question, especially if it’s our first time working together. Let me share my proven process for a successful project outcome.
1. Getting to know one another
To start, we’ll have an introductory conversation. I’ll want to get to know you, your business and your project. I’ll ask what I call the “5 Ws and an H” questions; the who, where, what, when, why and how. Be prepared, there will be many. The better I know you, the more successfully I can touch the heart of your business. I would expect you to have questions as well.
We’ll discuss a timeframe for your project. I’ll let you know if your deadline is reasonable and what we’ll both need to do to achieve that goal.
We’ll also talk money. I know this is a touchy subject, but it’s most fair to you to know right away if we’re playing in the same ballpark. Be prepared to share your budget and I’ll share what Adunate can do for that amount of money.
2. Defining the details
Based on our initial conversation, Adunate will put together a project proposal. It will itemize the scope of the project, which responsibilities each of us must assume, a schedule for achieving your deadline, and costs. When we are both in agreement on the proposal and the required downpayment is paid, we can begin with the fun.
3. Getting on with the project
Research is an important foundation and Adunate takes this quite seriously. I will study your industry, your target market, your competition and so much more. From this research, I will formulate ideas for your projected and present you with rough drafts. From there you and I will exchange honest and constructive feedback, and I will work to refine a chosen draft.
Once we’ve completed the revisions, it’s time to wrap up the loose ends. You will be billed for the remaining balance and Adunate will finalize the project, such as publishing your website or uploading your files to Dropbox. It’s then time to celebrate!
