how or better yet why would you do that? Maybe better question to what extent?
I don’t know if this is what you are looking for, but Smashingmagazine had an interesting article on this: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2011/01/14/how-to-identify-good-clients-avoid-bad-ones/ Also, have a look at the related posts to this one.
Not really what I’m looking for. The talk itself is about to how make your products more straightfoward to avoid people asking for support, and then how to better support the ones that do come for support. Towards the end I’m touching on how we’ve set up a culture of just brushing off customers and clients as ‘stupid’ rather than properly educate them.
Does that make sense?
Funny thing is I’m on par to become elite and hit that 70% within the next week or two…. So by the time that 70% bump happens I’ll likely have JUST become elite.
Hi all, I’m putting together a talk for WordCamp Grand Rapids and WordCamp Chicago on doing support. I want to have a section where I talk about how we as a designer/developer community (not anyone of us specifically) promote the idea of ‘clients are dumb’ rather than properly educating them. Offhand, I can think clientsfromhell.net and 99designs.com – does anyone know of other sites I can reference/screenshot?
EDIT : I think that could be read wrong. I’m trying to say we need to educate clients and customers – I’m looking for examples of where our industry is doing it wrong.
To put it in your own words:
“Congratulations, your marriage has been approved on the Envato Marketplaces!”
WHAT ?! How did I miss this thread?
Now I’m even more excited for WCSF !
An HTML version of your template is required. You can make it in PHP even as the primary version, but you must include an HTML version as well. Thems the rules.
Just playing devil’s advocate here; Mind you, I do care about the community here greatly.
What is the incentive for a theme author to do this? If a TF author has a theme and uses a CC plugin and a few PD photos that are ‘bundled’ with it, those CC and PD authors are making additional sales due to the TF author’s work without lifting a finger.
