How to Get Design or Animation Approval From Clients

As a creative entrepreneur, getting approval for your designs or animations from clients can take a lot of time. You have to make sure that your work meets the client's expectations and your vision. It's rare for projects to be fully approved on the first try. To help you speed up the approval process, I've gathered 4 tips based on my experience working with over 100 creative and marketing teams from big brands and agencies.


1. Set realistic goals and deadlines: Let your clients know from the beginning how many revisions and hours it will take to complete a project. This helps them plan their time and reduces their concerns about the process taking too long.

2. Involve and educate your clients from the beginning: Instead of waiting until the end to get client feedback, include them in the process early on. This approach is more efficient for both parties. Also, remember that clients may not have as much experience as you do, so take the time to educate them about the project and provide guidance.

3. Implement Feedback: Implementing feedback means taking action based on the input you receive from your clients. It involves listening to them and involving them in the decision-making process. However, it's not always easy to implement feedback because sometimes clients may ask for changes that could negatively impact your goals or previous research. In such cases, you should explain the reasons behind your decisions and let the client make the final choice. It's important to have the right tools in place to collaborate effectively with your clients and manage feedback.

4. Explain Your Actions Clearly: When working with clients, it's crucial to explain why you made certain decisions in a way they can understand. You don't need to use complicated jargon or fancy terms to impress them. Instead, break down your actions and explain them in simple language. This not only strengthens your relationship with the client but also helps you identify any flaws in your research or thought process. If you can't back up your work with data or research, it's likely that you won't produce successful results.


Streamlining the Review & Approval Process for Satisfaction: By involving clients, educating them, and delivering on their informed decisions, all parties involved can achieve success and satisfaction. With the right tools, managing the review and approval process efficiently between you and your clients should be smooth. Clients want to feel valued and in control, so by providing them with value, working alongside them, and educating them throughout the process, you can become a trusted advisor rather than just a service provider.
