Oh, the product will sell. God wants it to.
After having delivered an eCommerce site to a client, he called me on the phone, explaining that he had experienced some problems ordering products. While on the phone, I explained to him that I would do a test order to see if I could reconstruct the problem he experienced. The ordering went fine, but suddenly he says
Client: “Wow, I got an order from you here. You want that Jacuzzi? I’d suggest [some Jacuzzi name] instead!”
Me: “As I explained to you, that was a test order. I don’t want any Jacuzzi”
Client: “Well, you ordered one, now you have to pay. I’ll just take it of your invoice.”
Client: “I have a great idea, and I’d like to bring you on board as a partner.”
Me: “Go on..”
Client: “It’s great. I want to recreate Google, but make it better.”
Client: “Well that’s where your expertise comes in.”
Client: “I want a website that can make me a lot of money. Can you do that?”
Me: “Sure, what do you have in mind”
Client: “… one that can make me a lot of money…?”
Needs more WA-WA-WOOM.
Oh, I haven’t been in touch because I have been on vacation for the past week… You will get paid once I have the money to pay you.
Most of our photos are all white people, but we need to show more diversity, and we don’t have the budget for another photoshoot. But I’m sure you can just change them to various races, I mean, that’s what a graphic designer does, right?
Here, I really like Apple’s logo, so I’ve taken their logo and put our name under it.
I can’t afford to pay you the balance, but would you like my Jack Russell Terrier?
I want a solid background. Something that fades from light to dark or dark to light.
