Common Web Design Issues Clients Complain About

by Dave | Blog

Design problems occasionally arise with websites, so developers need to be able to explain them to clients in layman’s terms for better understanding. What are the most common issues?

  • Video not loading.
  • Different appearance of photos on different devices.
  • Messed up logo colors.
  • Disappearing website.
  • Text looking funny on blog posts.

It’s usually easy to diagnose these problems and pinpoint the culprit so that they can be resolved. Sometimes, however, the issue involves demand for additional work and solutions, such as when clients want:

  • Selling capability on the site.
  • Better online visibility and SEO.

Whether an issue requires nothing more than run-off-the-mill troubleshooting or a more involved solution that would cost the clients, the key is in being able to make them understand how things work and what would fix their problem or give them what they want.

How to Use Your Downtime Wisely

Downtime is an essential part of life. It is important for unwinding and recharging, but it can also be employed in such a way that you can derive more from it besides fun and relaxation. What steps do you need to take to accomplish this?

  1. Ensure balance in your work life by committing to do something different from your job during your downtime. This will allow you to satisfy various psychological needs. For instance, a solitary job should push you to a more social hobby.
  2. Choose activities that will nurture skills you need for work. For instance, if you’re looking to enhance your leadership capability, spearhead fun groups like a book club or a sports team.
  3. Determine whether you’re truly passionate about your hobby or if you’re doing it purely for amusement. Keep in mind that the more invested you are in an activity, the better you will be at it. Having a mastered skill always helps in boosting your self-confidence.
  4. Avoid serious hobbies that are too much like work and could prove to be just as demanding. This could lead to a burnout and it ultimately defeats the purpose of downtime. Instead, dedicate yourself to hobbies that are different enough from work that spending time on them could only empower you.
