Is Your Business Using Case Studies?

A case study can be a valuable tool to show customers what your business can offer. But case studies are rarely used, and when they are, they tend to not be used to their full potential.

Customer Communication is Key

As a designer the key to success is getting your customers the final product they want. Often this can be difficult because we all can communicate in very different ways.

"Customer Service" - Two Words in Conflict

It seems like every week there is some reason to contact a company to get something resolved. In every call you have to assume that things will work out and try, as best you can, to not let previous experiences influence your approach in a negative way. In theory it all sounds like a reasonable approach, but it can quickly fall apart when the state of “customer support” is worse than ever.

No matter what the problem may be it seems that the customer support team is there to help the company and not the customer. Whether it is helping the company by paying for reps that are overseas or by issuing policies that remove the ability for a rep to help customers, companies seem increasingly less concerned about customer satisfaction. Obviously any employee of a company is there to serve the best interest of the company, but the perception was always given that they were at least there to help the customer.


How To Find A Web Designer

From personal blogs to online stores, when it comes to choosing a web designer, knowing how to select the person or company that is right for you can be very difficult. To ensure you get a final product that meets or exceeds your expectations, you should use a process to narrow down your search of web designers.

As the customer you need to be ready, or close to ready, to start the project. You need to have worked out some of the details and have an opinion about how the site is structured, how it functions and your desired goals for the site.
