Not everyone is familiar with WordPress and thus needs instruction at every step. When you develop a website, you don’t know what type of client you are dealing with. Whether or not he is familiar with WordPress, you just cannot leave them to struggle to get things done on the website you developed. In addition, if your client does not want to learn and improve their technical skills, the potential growth will severely suffer; consequently eating up your time and efforts.
There is something you can do to save yourself from all the pain.
Make the WordPress dashboard more perceptive for your clients! Making small adjustments here and there help your clients with the software and make certain that they do not consume a lot of your time and effort for simple features.
We have pulled together three ways to make it more interactive and convenient for your client. Have a look!
1. Improve user experience – back-end matters a lot!
• Add custom post types to separate your content
Organization is one of the most important things regardless of your field. Organizing your content is the basic thing that can be done to enhance client experience on WordPress admin. Custom post types have revolutionized WordPress today. Adding custom post types to separate your content is a smarter way to deal with a non-technical client. Make use of “Types Plugin” to make the most of custom post types.
• Enhance dashboard icons
Every new custom post type comes with a default icon i.e. a pin, which has the same appearance as that of WordPress posts. Keeping all the icons same makes it difficult for your client to differentiate between two different posts. However, you always have the option to assign a custom icon for each post type and make your client’s life easier. Make sure you add relevant icons on custom post type to easier understanding. To add relevant icons go to Types > Types and Taxonomies > Edit your Custom Post Type and use the Icon field.
2. Introduce WordPress dashboard help
Contextual Help is sadly one feature which is often overlooked by many web developers. You can find a help button right next to Screen Options in the corner of every page. Introduce this to your client and persuade them to use it as it comprises a lot of useful information on how to use WordPress.
3. Provide beforehand training
Though the WordPress dashboard is already perceptive itself, the most efficient way of assisting your clients is to introduce them to it in an easy way. Providing in-depth training may be time-consuming but it saves you from all the hard work you may have to do after handing over the website to your clients. Take this opportunity to help them learn a bit about WordPress and solve their problem once and for all.
