How to Address Constant SEO ChangeRequests and Prevent Scope Creep
John Romaine Sunday, June 5, 2011Freelance SEO Consultant, Web Designer and Internet Marketer
You know, I love SEO. I love helping clients, and seeing them achieve results online. I findit very rewarding. As well as that, I love being a freelance consultant and meeting newpeople and taking on new challenges. This is the very reason why I quit my 9-5 job anddecided to
start an SEO business
.But as with any business, there
s always a few small niggling issues that seem to beconstant, regardless of how great things are. And quite possibly, one of the mostannoying issues for me as an SEO consultant are - change requests!If you
ve never experienced this, prepare yourself, because it
s going to be inevitable. Letme tell you, there
s nothing worse or frustrating than having a client continually call oremail you demanding continual (and in most cases) completely unecessary or pointlesschange requests.Now don
t get me wrong. Change requests are to be expected, and often they can be agood thing
s a difference. What I
m talking about here are clients that makechange requests simply for the sake of it. Or at least that
s how they appear.
John, instead of those 10 keywords I gave you yesterday, here
s a list of 300 that we think could be good
No I don
t like menu structure being on that side of the page, let
s move it over to the other side and down a little bit, and change the wording
Can you see where I
m going with this?For whatever the reason, it sure is annoying, and it
s definitely something that needs tobe addressed, ahead of taking on any project. To an extent, its about educating theclient, or at the very least raising awareness about the potential implications of suchrequests.
Scope creep can eat you up.
