Efficient Work MethodologyOrder Now
How many times has it happened to you that, when working on a project, you have felt lost, overwhelmed by doubts, deadlines and tasks to continue? All this is very common when one begins to work as an editor, but in our company, this could easily be avoided by following a work methodology, defining each of the steps to follow in a project before starting to work on it.
Having a working methodology is not only important for the professional to be able to organize, work better and follow a work rhythm without unforeseen events, but also it helps to deliver better results, ensuring that the client is satisfied.
But what remember when following a working methodology? What steps should we take into account to deliver an excellent result and minimize disputes with our clients?
1. Define the work
If you do not know where you are going, it is likely that you will never arrive. And the same happens when you start working on a project, because if you do not know exactly what to do, you can hardly deliver an excellent result for your client. That is why the first step in winning a project is to define in detail the tasks to be done, to define the topics, the steps to follow and the results to be delivered. Before starting to work, we make a point by point list about the work to be done, and we ask our clients to confirm it in order to double check and go on insurance. If we have questions, we ask our clients and we will be happy to solve their queries so we can deliver a good job. And also, this will help us avoid misunderstandings, disputes and breaches.
2. Create a working schedule
Creating a schedule is not only useful to define and fix what is going to be done each day and how much time is allocated to each task until completing the project, but also allows to foresee possible delays and adjust the dates so that there is no problems with the deadlines. Once we know what the project consists of and what the deadlines are, we create a calendar that shows the days of work, including what tasks we are going to do per day, including unforeseen events so that it does not affect the delivery of the paper.
3. Work in stages
Any project, no matter what its size, should be divided into small stages, sub-tasks or milestones for the client to approve each step and we can continue to move forward accordingly to his feedback. For example, if we have to write ten articles for a blog, we send one as a reference to the client and then we continue with the other nine. If, on the other hand, we bet to deliver everything at the end, there is a great risk that the client will ask us for numerous changes that could have been avoided if each stage had been revised. And if, in addition to giving everything at the end, we do it on the deadline, that can arouse disputes between we and our client. In this respect, we only deliver the paper by parts, at a delivery date established by our clients!
4. Communicate with the client
Communication with the client is an obligation for us throughout the entire project. Although the delivery dates are clear, the tasks to be developed are defined and the stages to deliver results are fixed, we always have to keep communicating with the client and keep him updated on our progress even if the work is done. This generates security and confidence, and it is also likely that they will be more understanding of any mismatch if communication has always been efficient and fluid. We will tell the client that we made such advances, that we plan to deliver the work two days before the deadline, that we came up with new ideas, that tomorrow we deliver new material ... Everything we think we can add, we share it! It is not about creating a forced conversation, but about sharing everything relevant about the project that can help our clients feel safe and with the guarantee that we will deliver an excellent result.
And above all, we put everything on our part throughout the process and, whenever it is true, our clients will observe that we loved collaborating with them and we are at their disposal for any project or task that needs to outsource.
As you can see, having a well-defined work methodology is fundamental to be a good freelancer and to work with organization and productivity.
