The Project Requirements Questionnaire: Why it Creates a Smooth Path for Resellers and Their Clients


By Mari Rogers

HubShout uses a Project Requirements Questionnaire (PRQ) for all website reseller projects. This online tool helps to shape and guide the formation of a new website for the end client.

How is a website created using the PRQ? To begin with, resellers generate a professional project proposal using the website reseller proposal tool. The proposal explains what the team will do, and gives a price quote for the project. The price alters instantly depending on whether clients add or remove features from the proposal. After the proposal is okayed, a PRQ is generated.

The PRQ helps the reseller define elements, templates, and other features that will be required for the website. The Project Requirements Questionnaire also keeps track of important information about the business, as well as the objectives for the website. This helps ensure that the final product is in line with what the end-client is hoping for. The websites are designed and built based on both the client's specifications, and their budget.

After client approval of the PRQ, this information is sent to the web development team. They generate a working website preview that the client can review. Before the website launches, any requested revisions are made.

While this might seem par-for-the-course, in reality, many SEO white label resellers don't bother with an extensive approval system the way HubShout does. It's when client requirements aren't documented, and when clients aren't consulted throughout the process, that mistakes are made, and disputes happen. HubShout's PRQ benefits both the reseller and the client in this way. The reseller spends less time dealing with issues that pop up, and experiences clients happy with their results. The client receives a great website that takes into account all their specifications.
