As a professional developer, you probably create dozens of sites every year – maybe even more. The process is different. Maybe so fast, maybe starting from scratch with each one can make the development process long and tedious. In addition, you run the risk of forgetting to include important functionality. By creating a standardized list of client site features, on the other hand, you can speed up your development pace and avoid leaving out key elements. You might even prevent mistakes that could ruin a site and waste all your hard work.
In this post, CMSmart will discuss why it’s helpful to have a set of features you include every time you create a site for a client. Then we’ll share our top six additions to that list. Let’s go!
Why It’s Helpful to Standardize Your Client Site Features
What is the key feature on the client site? When you’re busying juggling clients, managing invoices, and trying to make time for all of your projects, it can be easy to overlook even simple things. If you don’t have a standardized set of features you know you’re going to use in every project, you can easily fail to include something important that makes your client’s site less successful. Plus, when you already know that there are certain features you’re going to add to every site, you have to make fewer choices to make during the build itself. This can streamline your process, and help you avoid decision fatigue and burnout over the course of each project.
There’s also a chance that some or most of your clients have little technical knowledge. If they don’t know how to manage features such as security or Search Engine Optimization (SEO), your work may go to waste when the site is attacked, or goes unseen because it doesn’t rank well with search engines.
Finally, providing a standard set of features can help with your marketing strategy. When promoting your services, you can list out the functionality you include on each site, to demonstrate the benefits you provide for clients. If potential clients can see that you’ll help automate their performance, maintenance, and so on, they’re likely to feel like they’re getting a better deal.
