I think creating a single source of content collection is important,If there are multiple ways to provide content, things can get messy.
The most common is a combination of email, documents, and file uploads. This complicates the process for clients. It also wastes your own time to collate the content and make sure you have everything you need. Some agencies have an entire person dedicated to this process.
When you use a central content repository or a “single source of truth,” your clients know where they need to go to submit content, and it saves your agency countless hours of management.
It is indeed something to think about. There are paid solutions on the web.
Like you, your clients are busy. It’s hard for them to find the time and patience to provide the content, even though you need it to do the work they’re paying you for.
Creating website content is time-consuming and difficult. So, of course, clients will put the task off, even if it’s in their own interests to do it quickly.
It’s also challenging because most clients don’t know exactly what’s needed. They have never created a website before, or they’re unsure about what content elements to include. You’ll know this problem exists when the content that does come back is vague or incomplete.
This creates serious challenges for designers. Projects grind to a halt, and it’s impossible to get any work done. Delays in projects also mean delays in getting paid.
On the other side, clients can get frustrated at the slow pace things are moving, even though we’re waiting on them.
The content collection process is a huge bottleneck for many of us I think be clear about it with your clients is important.
So a good topic to debate
