How to Build a Partnership With Your Web Designer

Partnership with your designer

Partnering or outsourcing doesn’t have to be daunting. Building partnerships with your web developer is essential to your business growth and productivity. When partnering with a developer, it’s important to learn to communicate in a way that both parties can be on the same page. If you really want to get the best out of your web designer, you need to treat that person like a business partner who is trusted, valued, and critically important your business.

You can build a stronger relationship by treating your designer as a collaborator in your success and not just as a contracted worker. It is crucial to share your successes with your web developer. You’ll need to trust your designer on many fronts, and you’ll want this person to be honest and upfront about issues or changes, as soon as possible.

In order to build a successful partnership with your web developer, it is important that you spend time negotiating. The first issue up for discussion is price. Provide a realistic picture of what the job entails in order for the web designer to give you an accurate quote. Second, determine milestones. Discuss a schedule and figure out when deliverables should be ready at each stage of the process. Finally, think long term. Your site is likely to need updates and/or redesigns in the future, so you want someone that you can rely on to come back to make these updates and changes.
