Are you getting tired of sending proposals to the big brands, only to find out it’ll be rejected? Now you are aiming to get start-up businesses as clients for your web design service.
As someone who’s proficient to do the web design, here are the few things you need to expect when working for startup businesses.
- Quick Changes
To avoid spending too much time in a project without any additional fees for the tasks, you may simply outline your fees, objectives, and goals, since clients can change their minds easily. Without a written agreement indicating fees and list of task, you will end up being exhausted doing the web design.
Let the clients know that once they have added tasks not included in the agreement, the tentative set deadline will be moved and there is a corresponding amount of professional fee for that.
- Low Budget
Compared to big brands that are willing to shed money no matter what it cost, startup founders are hesitant to invest for a web designer. Treat each client like a newbie that needs more in-depth information about the importance of web design and development to their business.
Every peso counts to startup founders and they would try to do price haggling in the best that they could. Know to sell your expertise.
- Higher Expectation
Have clear information about the client’s target market or audiences for their products and services. Before you closed the deal with the startup founder, know the right feels or emotions and call to action buttons that you must include to the web design. Every information you may get from the client’s perspective, it will be useful for the website, once the conversion starts to pour in.
These are the top three expectations you should embrace when dealing with startup businesses.
