This episode, we will talk about step 3.5 – Gathering content from the client. This is a major bottleneck in most production workflows. So here are some thoughts on what to do or not do to make this process less painful.

Please do…

– give them a questionnaire
– give them a checklist
– hire a copywriter
– explain that you might have to edit their content (included in the fee)
– clarify which images you want
– offer to organize a photographer

And… please…

– do NOT leave it up to them
– do NOT get bullied into making their content
– do NOT offer Lorem ipsum
– do NOT wait for them to come back to you

Tune in to hear explanations, stories, and ideas about gathering content from the clients!
