What to Expect

Stressful projects never create happy clients.

We have all been there. You’re on the ‘nth revision and the client is frustrated. The web project was supposed to be done months ago but the client keeps asking for more. This course is here to help guide you through smooth client management in web projects that makes them even more confident in your skills.

Never again experience:

  • Clients take control of the creative process
  • Clients ask for too many (unpaid) revisions
  • Projects take a lot longer than initially planned
  • Not knowing how to have difficult conversations with clients
  • You waste time doing the same project management tasks

Organization

Organization never felt so good.

With this course, you’ll be able to run projects with less stress, interact with your clients with more joy, and save time for what’s really important.

Create your web agency’s foundation

At the beginning of the course, we will explore what good project management means, how to create your own standards and ways to be accountable to yourself and your client.

Progress quicker through the milestones

Creating impressive websites can take time. We detail how to talk to your client through every step of the process so you can get approvals faster.

Navigate complicated scenarios with clients

Everything is easy in theory. We have detailed 10 unique scenarios that might arise during the project and how to confidently address these challenges like a professional.

Meet your instructor

Lauren Kay

I started freelancing web design and development in 2008. Since then, I scaled my efforts and grew my agency, Brave Factor, to fourteen people. Managing clients, delivering content on time, and finishing projects by the deadline were always challenging for me. Then, we started creating processes, establishing standards, and over-exceeding on communication. With a consistent 5-star rating on Clutch (highlighting our client management processes primarily) and my experience building systems with GatherKit.io, a web-project content collection tool, I feel confident this course can help you in your efforts to manage projects easier.

A complete course on web project management – built for anyone ready to upgrade their processes

This course is perfect for freelancers and young agencies who want to avoid painful client management mistakes. This is ideal for web creators but can be applied to many creative industries that manage clients, like:
