I’d made a website for an author whose hardcover romance novel was due to be available in a few weeks.

Client: Hi, can you add this line to my home page? “PRE-ORDER HARDCOVER BOOK NOW: For the first 25 people who register, you will receive a signed copy of my book!”

I knew this client to be very creative, but not what you’d call “detail-oriented.”

Me: Sure, I can do that. But, before I do, it might be helpful to have some additional information. How are you planning to handle the pre-orders? How much are you charging for the book? How much will you be charging for shipping? How will you be collecting the funds? How will you get the customers’ addresses so that you can ship the signed copy to them?

There are quite a few things to consider. Would you like a phone call to discuss them so that we can get it all set up?

Client: Never mind.
