Currently I’m re-designing a website for a non-profit as a portfolio piece and I’m running into a road-block during initial client interviews that I’ve come to before.
You may have come across this; the client seems convinced there is nothing wrong with the business and nowhere to improve. You are just there to “make the website modern.” I feel the right thing to do is to stay skeptical and poking around for client problems. I’ve recently sent an e-mail requesting they outline three short and long term goals for the business to help with this.
As an aspiring web developer I have a few questions:
- Are there any resources/tools you might recommend to help identify business goals?
- Is this a common road block dealing with clients?
Thank you all!
