Asking why me?


In the midst of Covid-19 (Corona Virus), we at JDS WebDesign hope everyone is safe, washing their hands frequently, sneezing and coughing on their elbow, and practicing social distancing.  Over the next several weeks, we plan on blogging about making your website more business-friendly.  We will have some tutorials on our favorite plugins and features, which will make your site more efficient.


Why not you!!! Have you ever had a day in which nothing went well? You oversleep for a meeting.  A prospective client insists on meeting you on the other side of town (like an hour’s drive), and you wait for over an hour.  The prospective client is ill and forgot to cancel the meeting.  Holding a meeting with a new client, and realizing you are not meeting their expectations.  Where is a big bowl of ice cream?

The other day was a really challenging one for me.  Working on three projects and very much lacking sleep, my schedule had three meetings on a Monday.  Monday’s are very busy for me.  Most of my client requests are forwarded on Monday, so spending three or four hours working on client’s sites…is not new to me. Having several faith-based clients, sermons are uploaded on Mondays…bulletins are placed on websites.

One of my projects was for an educational institution.  It was the enrollment period.  My client had a new director, and the enrollment form was completely overhauled. The gravity form had over 300 line items.  The update process took me over two hours to complete.  Felt extremely tired after completing this process.  Conference call in which the form and process were explained to the new director.  He had many questions and after about 30 minutes…I had to excuse myself for another conference call.

The second project is a community-based website. Many issues with this site, and I have hired a developer to clean out some of the issues.  The developer is just not working out.  Many of the client’s requests are coming back to me, as something which the developer just can not resolve.  Had to hire another developer, but trying to explain the delays to my client…was not an easy situation.

The third project is a start-up project.  During the scoping process, the client informed this was just a brochure site.  Now the client is wanting to know “why no one is purchasing any of his services?”  What services…site is just to inform you that you exist.  A quick conversation and a few changes (email capture and drip campaign).

I try not to ask why me.  I just look at each call as an opportunity to help my clients.
