Everybody wants to satisfy the client and wants to avoid giving him revisions again and again. Before digging into how to deliver a WordPress website to a client here are my recommendations for things you should check before you hand over a website to a client for a pleasant experience.
- There should be no grammar or spelling mistakes.
- Analyze whether you had mentioned a clear and enough call to action or not (it must be in moderation).
- Check whether all the images are properly sized or not.
- Check out the social media share button, whether they are working fine or not.
- Before delivering the website to a client, always consider the client’s requirements and whether the website meets his needs or not.
- Website colour schemes play a significant role in branding. That’s why you need to cross-check that there must be coherence in your design.
- Ensure the website works fine on all smart devices (mobile phones, tablets, desktops).
Considering all these points would save you from future headaches, and your client would be satisfied as you deliver what he needs. That’s why double-check all the necessary steps just before pushing the send button.

After customization, When you log in you’ll see your logo on the left side of the dashboard, and also when you log out or when somebody logs in you can see your logo. You can do it using a plugin. The plugin that we’re
going to use for this is called White Label CMS.

3 Design Site Icon
you are reading this article on TIPsoont Just saw the top Browser’s Tabs you can see a small logo of TIPsoont like a sparrow in a black color called site Icon or Favicon. it gives an amazing and professional look to the website and most websites are using this option.
so if you want to research information on that it’s called the Fav so F-A-V. But right now, it’s
called Site Icon and that is that little icon that you can see in all of the tabs over here.
So, let’s just set this up for this website right now. You can do that by going to
appearance and then click on customize.
And then, you need to search for a tab called site identity.
If you have a different theme, then sometimes it’s hidden in some of the tabs over here.
Sometimes it’s inside of the header or inside of the style.
So, you need to click on a few tabs to find the site identity then scroll down and see the Site Icon over here. So, you can now scroll down and then select the Site Icon.
TIP: For the Site Icon, make sure that it’s not white because it’s going to be on a white or almost white background in most cases. And you also want to make sure that there is enough spacing on the left and on the right otherwise, you will have problems with the cropping, right?
So, if you just drag and drop on the uploading pop-up screen you can see a preview over here
So, if you click on skip cropping, and click on publish, After this publishing, it’s changed from the WordPress icon to now my Site Icon.
So, this is for the whole website and now we’re done with this step.
The idea is to have a logo but some websites are to use a logo due to their topic you can use a site favicon to generate an icon for your website it makes the look of our website very professional.
4 User Role Management of website
Most clients want to be able to Log in themselves and make simple changes to the text and to the images. But you don’t want them to change everything about the website.
So, WordPress has a great system for this and that is called user roles. Elementor also uses those user roles, You can go to the User section in element or tab and Select the role of the user normally and the same In the Left dashboard find a Section of the user
How to create a user for your client because you should never share your own login details just for safety reasons and most clients don’t know about the deep pockets of website the that can unconsciously interrupt the website you can assign a role with limited Options.
So, if you go to the user’s section in the left sidebar of the dashboard,
You can click on add new over here and here you can add a user for your client.
Just put a front name, it doesn’t really matter it doesn’t have to be a very difficult name. And you need to put in their email because they will get an email from WordPress when you add them as a user, but also if they want to change their password. So, you only need to fill in the user name and the email.
Then you can scroll down and then put them on the editor role. And that is one role below the admin role, which is the highest. But I have to say that sometimes your client wants full access to the whole website and then you can add them as an admin. But I would say for most clients just give them the editor role because you don’t want your clients to touch things that they shouldn’t touch.
So, just click on add a new user, and then they will get an email. So, that’s all you need to know for this step
Elementor user roles.
And this is very important because Elementor doesn’t know that we have just created a new user inside of WordPress. Elementor cannot read everything in WordPress, So, you need to tell Elementor that you want to give the editor role limited access to all of the Elementor features.
So, if you go to Elementor, if you have Elementor Pro, you can go to the role manager.
And if you don’t have Elementor Pro then this option is not available.
In the editor’s role of an element or the only thing that they can do, for example, is to change the icon, which is to change the text.
But they cannot change the margin, paddings, or add in new elements. So, that is a feature that recommends you use
5 User Interface Customization
If you go to the plugins and you click on add new and search for this plugin, WP Admin UI Customize, you can see this plugin.
I use it on all of my websites and this is because of the User-friendly environment and support
So, what this allows you is to limit what your client can see inside of WordPress because normally my client can see all of these things. let’s say, that I only want my clients to be able to see the pages and maybe not even the comments and the media, right? Or even the ExactMetrics report. Maybe you want to only give him a preview on the dashboard.
So, let me show you what I mean. If you go to the plugin and then click on the option, you need to select what role you want to edit. It’s a little bit clunky I would say. It’s not a perfect plugin but it works. But the technique is very good
so if you check the box and then click on save then you can go to the sidebar now we can edit the sidebar of all the people that have an editor account within this WordPress website.
So, I think this is an excellent plugin to make the experience for your clients better.
6 Explainer video about the website
What I always do when the client needs to fill in their own content is I make an explainer video on how to use the website.
Very nicer for your client. But for most clients, it’s still a little bit hard. So, what I always do is just record my screen using ScreenFlow QuickTime etc.
And there’s a great tool called Loom that’s actually free. Where you can record your screen and your microphone at the same time But that is something that your client will really appreciate.
I’ve done it with almost all of my projects Make it super easy for clients and give your client a little bit of confidence that they can make the simple changes to a website.
How they can add portfolio items, how they can add blog posts, and where they can see the analytics, right?
So, this is just something that I always do and your clients will love this because they will not feel lost.
And this is very important because if your client has a pleasant experience in the last few weeks that they work with you, they are going to tell other people about you. So, make sure that you don’t forget them after the website is done. Tell them what they can do with it and they will be very happy with you.
you can put videos on YouTube and I send them an unlisted YouTube link.
7 Document file of the website’s data
After all, just create a Document File with a Complete Explanation of the Website and features the main point is to add all universal images like logos and Flyers, etc with colors Hex Code with the Help of this client can design new pages and Images by choosing the Same Colours to carry the momentum forward Very amazing It is in my day to day experience
