Communication as a customer with builder

Communication

If your project plan is ready or your company has registered with the Chamber of Commerce and the money is there to build a website. Is it time to think about a website. Often you are bound to a maximum budget and you actually want to use part of the money for your marketing and that new laptop. Then the question is how can I outsource my website as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible?This can be done by spending time on the preparation. First put on paper what your goal is for your website and what needs to be done. Then look for a web builder that fits your budget and can meet the minimum requirements you set for your website. Do not hesitate to talk with a piece or 5 and feel free to ask a quote of 3 or more. Think about it for a few days, ask more questions and then choose the one that best meets the requirements for you and your website.The preliminary work has been done, but then! Make sure at the beginning that it is clear on paper so that the preconditions for building are as well as boarded up. In practice it will become apparent that this is never the case, but then postpone it on time so that the website can be modified and miscommunication is avoided or extra costs incurred.

A few tips

  • Let yourself be informed about the CMS that is going to be used or rather google it. Ask a few examples to see. This already gives a good picture of whether you can carry out maintenance on your website.
  • Think of your domain name in advance and register it. If you know a bit about hosting, you can also immediately take out a hosting that is often cheaper.
  • Use examples from other websites to give an idea what you want, but be clear about what part of that website you are talking about. Think of the possibilities within your budget and the CMS you choose.
  • Discuss the safety of the CMS that you will use before signing the quotation. Remember that everything is hackable nowadays.
  • Make sure that photos, PDFs and other files that are on your website are ready in advance and delivered in the correct format. Enter the conversation with your builder which format they can work with.
  • Think about the use of color on your website. Do not be afraid to adjust the hue when you see it with text on the website. There is a world of difference between thinking and seeing.
  • The font is always an interesting one, because you prefer to choose one font for your website, communication, logo and promotional material. What is beautiful on the website is not always beautiful on promotional material or vice versa. Think of readability. Here too, apply it and adjust it as soon as you doubt and preferably not at the end. Do not frustrate your web builder and yourself by trying out 30 fonts, keep it at max 5 types.
  • Consider in advance on which Social Media you are and which you want to use in your communication with your fans, customers, competitors and followers. What is common in my industry? What do I think is a fine communication channel when it comes to social media? Is my target audience there.
  • Which other communication channels, gadgets do you want to link to your website. Are they really coupled? Does it fit my budget? Can I also operate them myself or can I hire someone because of me?
  • For SEO, prefer to hire someone specializing in communication or searching the web. This benefits your ranking and snippet in Google and other search engines.
  • Sign up / log in to Google Analytics and webmaster. With Google Analytics you can gain insight into how often your website is visited and which parts of your website they visit. The default dashboard of Google Analytics is sufficient in the beginning. Later on, it is convenient to dive in or to hire a specialist in analysis.
  • Go beyond a website. For example, a webshop, remember that there is a budget attached to it to function properly, to comply with privacy legislation for your customers and the security of payment systems that you will use in the webshop.
  • Remember that if you have a website. Maintaining it also costs time and money. Or the money that goes to your web builder, the one you hire to do the maintenance or your own hours. Remember that it will take more time in the beginning than later. In the beginning you adapt a lot of texts after conversations with others. What seemed so beautiful on paper is often not what you want in practice.
  • Always ask your web builder for 3 adaptation rounds. Use the time between this adaptation round not frustrate your web builder and yourself with what is not yet there, but look for input from outside on the parts that are ready as agreed. Collect this input and sleep over night about it. Make of this input a clear document that you can communicate with your web builder, so that you can get the most out of the budget and time that you and your web builder have.

Skype the new mobile?

Skype is one of the few messengers that survives after a boom of messengers such as ICQ, MSN, Viber, Wattsapp, Telegram, Hangout. The reason is that Skype was immediately available for mobile and laptop. It is also a heavier program that immediately had all the features needed to use Skype in business instead of the phone.

After Microsoft had purchased Skype, it was further developed to the standards of today and became part of Microsoft’s fixed offering. Still a visionary that Bil Gates, but yes competition is lurking Wattsapp and Hangout. Hangout’s life depends on what Google will ultimately choose as its core business. Wattsapp is so integrated that it annoys people with all those wattsapp groups, but yes it is from Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg has had enough of Facebook. I am curious what he is currently developing!

Back to the subject, with a Skype manualThe numbers correspond to the numbers in the photos and explain what that button or component does.

  1. Select a smiley
  2. With this you choose to be able to type texts
  3. Sends typed messages
  4. This is the call button, with this you call
  5. This is the video button. This turns the video on or off.
  6. Here you type your message.
  7. Sends messages
  8. In this article the messages from both you and your conversation partner are displayed, the chat.
  9. Here you can see if someone is online (on the internet). You can only call if someone is online. You may want to leave a message for someone if they are not online.
  10. Settings: Here you can change your name, photo and text.

Communicating through nonviolent communication

This blog was published on the Dutch online platform Mindz of Seats2Meet in Dutch.

Since my return to the Netherlands, I am following a course on nonviolent communication at De Leefstijlspecialist. What an eye opener that was for me!

Nonviolent communication focuses both on internal communication with yourself and communication with others. You will learn to get to the core by asking questions and naming the needs of others and yourself. What others are concerned, it is in early stages a guess at needs and feelings of others, which is a way of showing a form of empathy. Only after confirming that it is correct, you can name them.

Its creator, Marshall Rozenberg calls it a way of communicating from the heart. “We learn to see our relationships in a new light when we use nonviolent communication to listen to our needs and those of our relationships,” says Marshall. These lessons grabbed me by the throat and put my needs flawlessly in communication with others and exposing myself. I recognized myself in behavior patterns defend and retreat when I was faced with condemnations and criticism. And these patterns you can break with nonviolent communication. And if you practice a lot, you can make it a habit. It’s nice that you can make this type of communication your own. It does take time, but then you have something valuable! Practice, practice not only in role-playing games, but also in real life. It is learning by trial and error.

The five elements are important in this form of communication are:

  • observations
  • feelings
  • needs
  • request
  • Compassion

It is important that you clearly express yourself and immerse yourself in the other by using the above mentioned 5 items. Sometimes someone is not waiting for advice or reassurance, but only a listening ear then nonviolence communication is the way to communicate. We call this empathy. Just be there and reflect on what the other says. The person then feels understood and that alone helps incredibly for someone to collect his thoughts. Also of interest is daring to be vulnerable. And to distinguish between feelings and thoughts. It is a way to free yourself from cultural conditioning. There are probable more communication methods that have eyes for this, but this one came along and spoke to me, and I would like to share it with you. It’s a long way to change your method of communication, have mercy on me if I fall again into old patterns:-).
