Ok, bear with me here. I understand the concern many of you have about fully turning over the keys of a website to a customer.

In the years I’ve been a web developer (16 or so), I’ve heard everything from customers from “I have no clue” or “I don’t have access to that” or “My other web developer handled that, but now they won’t answer my emails.”

When a business doesn’t have control over their foundational marketing piece, i.e. their website, that’s very bad news for me. However, this is a way for you to strike a happy medium of giving them control without worrying about them breaking that site you spend so many hours creating.

So how do I walk that balance of giving a client control and empowering them to make changes to their own website (without touching a line of code or breaking it)? I'll break down my entire process - from discovery through training - to show you exactly how it can work for you and still add to your bottom line.
