How To Deliver A WordPress Website To Your Client

I have been working as a freelancer for more than 10 years, and in those years, I’ve delivered numerous WordPress Websites to my clients. And I think I have found the perfect way to do it so your client is satisfied and you spend as little time explaining the WordPress website as possible.

The straightforward way is to ensure the website is done and check all your client’s wishes. Then you make a video where you record yourself and the website while you explain it. Lastly, you create an admin user for your client and send it.

Now, this is the straightforward way of doing it, let’s dive down into each of these steps, so I can elaborate and send you off with the best step-by-step process to deliver your next WordPress website to your client.

First Meeting With Your Client About The WordPress Website

This is a crucial step for your delivery to satisfy you and your client. The next you can do to prepare for the meeting is to do some background research on your client. You can learn a ton doing this. You absolutely need to know what their business is about before starting the meeting.

Now the most important thing coming out of the meeting is to have a detailed list of everything the client wants. The more detailed you are, the better the result and collaboration will be in the end.

When you have this list ready, it’s important you send it via email to your client. You need to get an acceptance in writing. With the list, you need to mention that your price is for what the list contains and nothing else. Extra tasks will cost extra.

If you want, then you can also add the number of revisions the client gets and a price for extra revisions. Add some description and what falls under a revision, as a complete redesign is too big of a revision.

Lastly, remember to set a deadline for the project and what you need from your client. Often you will need pictures or text from your client.

So, to sum up, when you send your email, it needs to include the following:

  • A detailed list of features the WordPress website needs.
  • A text about anything except for the list will be of extra charge.
  • Amount of revisions.
  • A price for extra revisions.
  • An example of a revision to avoid a complete redesign.
  • Deadline.
  • Materials you need from your client, like images and text.

Start Designing The WordPress Website

With the acceptance out of the way, it’s now time for the fun part, where you build the WordPress website. But before you set it up and start, you need to ask your client to buy a domain and WordPress hosting if they don’t already have it.

If you want to go out of your way, then you can suggest a hosting and a short description/guide to how you sign up and buy hosting. Often this can seem complicated to people who don’t work with hosting or websites regularly.

But now you can start building the WordPress website. Simply make a plan with to-dos and execute that plan.

If you have doubts along the way, then ask your client instead of guessing. This saves you time in the end and prevents you from having to make changes in the end. And it shows the client you are thinking about your client’s opinion.

Test The Final WordPress Website

Before you deliver the final WordPress Website to your client, it’s so important you test it.

Start by going through your list of features, are all features included in the website? Next, you test the design on multiple screen sizes, a table and your phone. Both for responsiveness, but also UX. Do the different functions work like the mobile menu?

With your test being a success, you’re now ready to deliver the WordPress Website.

Time To Deliver The WordPress Website

This is the exciting time you have spent hours building a WordPress Website that you’re proud of. You have tested it, and it’s now time to deliver it to your client.

The best thing you can do is to create a video where you record yourself and the website. While doing the recording, you show and explain the website. You show responsiveness and go through each feature on the list.

Then you create an admin user for your client, so they can sign in themselves and look around to check it all through.

Then you send an email containing the video, a link to where the WordPress website is right now, and the login to the client’s admin user.

Then ask your client to look it through and ensure you get a feedback meeting where the client collects all the feedback and explains it to you. So you avoid 10 different emails with feedback. This streamlines the process.

Congratulations! You’ve now delivered a WordPress website to perfection.
