Shopify Simple Tasks
Have you heard this story before?
You start a project and, as is the case with creative work, something small comes up. “We’ll take care of it!” they say and at the end of the engagement you get a bill for all those small changes and it completely blows your budget.
We go above and beyond for our clients here at Electric Eye and needed to find a way to address all the additional tasks that come up during the course of a project. While small, these still have value and technically are scope creep.
Enter the Shopify Simple Task.
Shopify Simple Tasks are our solution to solve your problems quickly and within budget. This is designed to save us both time and give you quality results. Defining a Simple Shopify Task is not cut & dry, but it is generally a request that can be knocked out in less than an hour.
We will tell you if a task qualifies. We’re not trying to be restrictive, we just need to provide the most efficient service possible for you. We don’t have a fancy equation or algorithm to approve a Shopify Simple Task, it comes down to our experience as Experts and our best projection of the time we’ll commit to the task.
Every business and website is unique, making what qualifies as a Shopify Simple Task infinitely varied and impossible to comprehensively list. Nevertheless, here are some examples of the most commonly requested Shopify Simple Tasks.
We greatly enjoy our business relationships that rely heavily on our Shopify Expert opinion and often receive requests that involve us making our own qualitative judgment calls. Unfortunately, we cannot accept these requests as these are the instances in which we prefer clearly defined measures of completion. Although we appreciate the trust in our expertise, the efficient execution of a Simple Task could easily be compromised through multiple revisions.
In the instance that we reject a requested task, first we will work to establish priority for the request and then find the means through which we can work toward meeting your needs through additional project scopes
