I’m currently working with a web designer and It seems I’m doing everything wrong and I’m not ready for the designer.
I’ve given him access to my vendor pages (brochure/catalog, pricing, pictures) and I’ve even created a spreadsheet.
I’ve shown him the web template I want to use.
I’ve shown him a copy of the old website (with some wording)
He has copied and pasted everything so it looks like the old website.
He created the shopping pages and he hasn’t looked at what he’s typed
For a similar product, he used the same picture even though some of the items were socks/thigh highs and some pantyhose with varying colors and sizes.
I’ve had to create dummy pages (copy and pasting) so he can see what I’ve asked for.
We’ve been working on this for 2 weeks and I’m really frustrated with the process.
I will keep what he’s given me and I’ll have to hire another person to do the data-entry of all the products.
What should I have done to have made this gone much smoother?
I was under the impression that a web designer would use their own creativity when assisting the buyer who has never done an eCommerce page.
I also thought (keyword) that the web designer would know how to create an easy to use and easy to read eCommerce page using the pictures that go along with the item (description, etc.)
PLEASE have a tip page for folks who are new to eCommerce designers!!!
