One of the easiest ways to organize input/feedback/content for your web designer is in a numbered list. Whether it’s an email message or Word file, if you just take the time to number each item in order, you’ll accomplish several things:
- You’ll clearly show how many action items are contained in the message. That helps both of you ensure that every item is addressed.
- You’ll make it very easy for your web designer to respond and ask a question, because they can refer to your point by number, instead of needing to reiterate in text what they are talking about.
- You’ll also make it easy for your web designer to respond about which items are completed (“wanted to let you know, items #1, #2 and #4 are done — but see below for questions about items #3 and #5”).
If you have several changes to be made at once, it’s definitely preferable to include them in one email with a numbered list — as opposed to several emails sent in rapid succession (or worse, one per day for a few days).
In addition to making it easier to track requests, it’s more efficient to work on multiple changes in one sitting, rather than jumping back and forth to the site with other tasks in between.
