It’s almost unheard of for a business these days not to have its own website, which is great news for those who specialize in web design. The bad news is is that business clients can be difficult to deal with because they often have less than a clue about what they actually need. Most of them want eye-catching, attention-grabbing work with pizazz, flair and bright colors. In other words, they tend towards having a tacky taste. A floral shop owner, for instance, may actually want a web designer to include words such as “bokay” in order to show how cute their business is.
Most clients will pretend to have a partner so they can blame it on someone else when they don’t like the web page that has been designed for them. This and other tricks are reasons why a smart web designer always charges 50 percent of the fee before he or she does any work.
