While seeing my services, many clients and professionals often ask the same question: Can you really handle all of this on your own? The short answer is yes; the long answer follows in this article.

It might seem weird in an age where specialization is the norm. Given the complexity of web design and development, which spans various areas like design, marketing research, and SEO, it may appear unrealistic for one person to handle everything.

It would require one person to have expertise in marketing & SEO research, UX & UI design, copywriting and web development simultaneously. It’s undeniably a difficult task.

So, can I do it?

Yes and no. First things first: when I offer a website, I guarantee its professional completion.

Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean I personally handle every step required to create a professional website. I often collaborate with copywriters and designers.

However, in certain instances, I do take a website from start to finish—yes, that includes copywriting—and achieve the desired results with the final projects.

The remainder of the article explains how I reached a point where I can manage all the necessary steps on my own.

My Process

I have a detailed process for everything – communication, client care, page copywriting, defining page narrative, wireframing, mockup design, dynamic component development, website launch, etc.

I adhere to my own checklists, ensuring not only that I don’t overlook any crucial steps but also guaranteeing a high-quality final product, the website.

Almost everything in this job can be done by following a checklist and comprehending each part of the process. That’s my approach, allowing me to consistently meet deadlines and deliver great performing, business-growing websites.

Collaboration

I often hire professionals to work with me.

The most common scenarios that prompt me to find someone to help me are:

  1. I don’t have enough time to finish every step of the project myself
  2. The website copy is in a language I’m not proficient in
  3. The UI design requires something truly special – an artist’s touch – and I don’t feel confident I can do it myself
  4. SEO research required for the project is extensive and necessitates a second set of eyes

I maintain a network of professionals who are ready to join a project when needed. By always having multiple options available, I can always guarantee the project delivery date.

Most importantly, my approach to projects

My approach to projects is somewhat unique.

I view each client and every website project as a puzzle waiting to be solved. Specifically, how can I create the best online presentation for this company and its products/services to ensure the client sees a swift return on their investment?

See, I understand that clients are investing in their businesses when they pay me to create or modify their websites. They expect a substantial return on this investment – and if that happens, they’ll keep coming back to me and refer me to other businesses. This makes my life much easier, which motivates me to do all I can to actually help my clients grow their business.

Knowing that, you can probably imagine how my collaborations went in the past. Clients with diverse needs found in me someone to understand their business comprehensively. And that is what allowed me to deliver or coordinate a successful project.

Instead of hiring different professionals for each task, they ended up giving me all the work. This is because I took time to understand their business from different perspectives while keeping the ultimate goal in mind – client’s business growth.

So I had to learn various disciplines, from research to website management, and in doing so took many projects from start to finish myself.

Now, that is certainly not my vision for the future. I intend to hire professionals more frequently. However, I’ll always maintain a central role as the primary contact with the client. This is so I can intimately understand their business, enabling me to share important information with the professionals I hire.
