We like to share tips, ideas, and strategies that will help you grow your business and convert your clients. Best practices and research-based tips because we don’t want to waste your time — we know you’re busy.
Now let’s talk about what happens when you skip best practices and wing it.
Sometimes, you hit gold. Going with your gut can lead to fantastic results. (Take a look at our own JR Rapp’s explanation of how he figures out a client’s budget for one example of how going on instinct can work.)

Once in awhile, we hear from designers who just want to skip it and do the bare minimum.

Do you ever catch yourself saying any of these things? (No worries if you do: read on for what to do to fix it.)
