    Best way to design – get all the content, ask about possible future
    content, plan consistent styling based on perceived contingencies – then
    develop a design based on that information. Or do it like i used to when i
    was starting out – design, get content, redesign, get more content,
    redesign, add more content, redesign, argue with client, complain,
    redesign, complain louder, redesign, get more content, complain, complain,

    just dealing with a client who wanted the full works but had no content,
    this really confirmed a lot of things for me. Thanks Mike.

    just today, I landed a client with literally NO content at all outside of
    an about page. But as long as I get paid, who cares.

    imo responsive design is important as more and more people are using mobile
    devices to view websites and not just the computer screen. I am learning
    responsive design as well and from the looks of it it is not that difficult
    and will be what future clients if not now will be looking for in the near

    More great advice Mike thanks. If you are starting out in webdesign I
    recommend Mike’s course. A one time fee and almost weekly if not monthly
    videos on many topics. A great and very different approach than others are
    taking to teach us newbs :) It has been invaluable to me and my learning.
    Thanks again Mike. And thanks for responding to all my emails and the
    additional help I have requested along the way.

    your talking nonsense, Mike always replies to me and a few of my friends
    personally. You should be happy that someone of his caliber is taking the
    time out of there schedule to make these videos. Most people in his
    position would not give away such useful information.

    if it’s a marketing tool or not – he’s helping many people who are coming
    up in web design – weather he’s makes money or get’s website sales – it’s a
    bi-product of his assistance. thanks for commenting!

    Actually, I’m not “talking nonsense” my friend. I wrote him here and on his
    personal website in regards to some career advice. He never responded,
    whatsoever. My issue here is he says he’ll respond to you personally, but
    doesn’t when the time arrives. If he’s too busy to respond, then don’t say
    you’ll respond.

    Thanks Mike!

    I try to respond to all emails. Shoot me an email this weekend and I’ll be
    sure to get to it. I don’t normally check Youtube emails, but hit me up
    through my contact form on my website and I’ll respond.

    Just found your vids. Look v.usefull. Tell my boss and clients that content
    is king every damn day. The message we aim to portray to the end user is
    paramount, it always amazes me how we are expected to design a site with
    very little content supplied. Often I find myself advising the client on
    what type of content I need from them even tho it is their business I am
    trying to best engage them with their audience. Baffling! Thanks again for
    your time to put such useful vids up.

  • Francisco Alvarenga Rua Reply

    Great vids,thkx! I now realize how difficult it is to do our own Web site.
    what content should i put in there? Very tricky. We really must be
    continuously focused on the content we need/want. it’s easy to get out of
    track and get lost on content that doesn’t matter… all the best!
