I am starting to ask clients where they fall on this scale. As we move towards 1 our price comes down and our timeline accelerates.
1 - Highest level of Trust.
Almost no involvement with creative process or site content- "let me know what you need to know and then show me when it's done".
5 - Blend of Input and Trust.
Some creative and content involvement: "I have ideas and need to give input on mission critical items (site structure, design, content) but trust you to take care of the details"
10 - Highest level of Input.
Heavily involved with creative process and providing site content: "I know exactly what I want and I need to be involved at every step of the project"
