Seems like another no-brainer. But when you are first starting to meet with clients, you may be asking their favorite color when you should be asking their business objectives. On the other end, you as a client needs to know what is expected of them as a client during a web development project. So, here are just a few examples to think about.
Ask about the timeline to keep things on track. Ask about all the features so that you know what you’re getting. Ask about hosting so you know where your content is. And ask for a contract to be sure everyone is on the same page.
For Web Pros:
Ask all of the same questions… but also, ask for a content audit. One of the worst parts of a project is getting 98% finished with the project only to find there is 120 documents in a PDF library that needs to be added, tagged, and coded and it was never mentioned.
Ask. Ask. Ask.
