Client Management Tips

  • Simplify technical language when communicating with non-technical clients. The key is to use analogies, simplify terms, and avoid jargon. Here are examples of how you could simplify technical language in various scenarios:
    • Security Audits:
      • Technical: “We’ll conduct a comprehensive security audit to identify vulnerabilities and apply patches to secure endpoints.”
      • Simplified: “Think of your website as a house. We will check all the locks on the doors and windows, ensuring they’re strong enough to keep intruders out.”
    • Custom Plugin Development:
      • Technical: “We’ll develop a custom plugin to extend the functionality of your CMS, integrating custom post types and metadata fields.”
      • Simplified: “We’re going to create a special tool for your website that lets you add and display different kinds of information exactly how you want.”
    • Migration Services:
      • Technical: “We’ll handle the DNS propagation and database serialisation during the migration to ensure data integrity and minimise downtime.”
      • Simplified: “Moving your website to a new host is like moving to a new house. We’ll pack everything up properly, move it over, and set everything up so it works like before, only in its new home.”
    • Integration Services:
      • Technical: “We’ll integrate third-party APIs to synchronise data across platforms, enabling automated workflows.”
      • Simplified: “We’re going to connect your website with other services you use, like linking your online store with your shipping provider, so they can automatically share information and make things run smoother.”
  • Establish a structured process for technical troubleshooting and support. I use Zendesk and ClickUp to manage support and troubleshooting.

Work-Life Balance

  • Regularly scheduled breaks to prevent burnout from intense coding sessions.
  • Pursue hobbies outside of tech to maintain a balanced lifestyle.
