How do you handle your work functions

How do you handle the content of your websites.

I run a small business that consists of myself, a designer and a programmer. We all work from home and the designer/programmer are paid on per job basis. What I've been doing so far is getting them to do the design/programming and managing the project myself, including all contact with the client, entering the content, doing the basic seo stuff like keyword reports etc.

In the past I have tried to have someone else manage the development of the site, and I would liase with the client. However this seemed inefficient because of the extra layer of communication, and projects took longer than they needed to etc.

So my question is, how do you manage your work processes?

I am in a very similar situation as you. I source the site work (design, copy, graphics) and do the "assembly" myself in addition to liasing with clients.

Also similar to you, I would like to source the "assembly" work as well so that I can focus more on keeping existing clients happy and generating new business.

This has not worked out for me as I spend far too much time trying to explain and convey my vision of a complete site over messenger and the phone.

I've tried to source the assembly work but haven't been very successful with that and I end up having to get involved anyways. I'd rather save the post assembly rework time and just do it myself.

This is not a good way to manage.. clearly I haven't found a source/resource that can envision the creative outcome that will satisfy me and more importantly, my clients.

So unless someone else wants to chime in here I will continue to pound away at the laptop and blackberry.

Designer, client manager, tech lead and programmer.

The client manager shares the designers creative vision and works very close with the tech lead during pre-sales & project manangement. Designer & programmer churn it out at hourly rate.

Projects do take a bit longer but we dont have to work too long or hard to keep moving them forward, I prefer this to working 24/7.
