Do your clients always go along with your creative ideas and concepts? If the answer is yes, then you can skip this episode. But if you’re like the rest of us, sometimes it takes some convincing to get your clients to see things your way, and trust in your expertise. In this episode, we have special guest Sam Cox, creative director at Digitally Roasted, sharing his methods, as well as how far you should go before giving in. We also discuss the rare occasions when giving in to a client’s idea actually benefits the project. (It can happen!)
As usual, the gang answers a few new listener questions. This time around, topics include why splash pages are outdated, and Photoshopped mockups in your portfolio.
Do you have any advice for getting clients on your side, or any stories where you either convinced a client, or ended up learning something new by listening to your client? Leave a comment below!
