In today’s issue, I want to talk about communication between you and your web developer.
You might be wondering why this is necessary. Since most web developers work remotely for your business—communication is everything.
Poor communication can lead to.
This is my preferred method of working with my clients.
Asynchronous communication means there is no expectation for an immediate response. An example of asynchronous communication is non-urgent email.
This is an efficient method for communicating with people outside your business. It's used by large software companies and has proven to be effective.
When using this method, processes and systems become vital for this to work.
It allows you to run your business without causing an interruption in day-to-day operations. When you are having a website built you can’t stop doing business. You need to be able to dedicate time to building the website and running your business.
Working asynchronously with your web developer gives you the 30k foot view. You can see the entire project at a glance, what's coming next, and any deadlines.
This allows you to spend more time on your business and less time monitoring the website build.
I emphasize communication during the process to ensure a smooth website delivery.
I use a piece of software called Basecamp. This allows my clients to have visibility into their project at all times.
Some other great pieces of software are:
Regardless of the software you use, asynchronous communication benefits both parties. Make sure this is something you look out for when hiring a web developer.
