How to Communicating Project Delays?


Social Manage Project Status Update Example

Hello!

I'm writing to let you know how things are going with the social media manager project. I've been managing your accounts for a few weeks now, and I'm really enjoying it. The content is fun to write, and the brand has really taken off on Instagram since I started posting there. It's great to see that so many people are connecting with it!

I'll be back in touch with you next week.

Thanks,

SEO Project Status Update Example

Dear Client,

I hope this message finds you well. I'd like to provide a project update for the SEO expert services you've hired me for. While I don't have any new news to share with you, I do have some information about the progress of the project so far.

Here's what we've done so far:

  • We've updated your website's internal linking structure to make it more user-friendly and accessible.
  • We've worked on increasing your website's rank on Google, Bing, and Yahoo by using keyword research to find the best terms to use in your content and in your metadata tags.
  • We've created a blog post that is optimized for keywords related to your business and published it on your website's blog. We also submitted it as a guest post on another relevant site with an audience similar in size as yours (you can see the link here).

Data Analysis Project Status Update Example

Dear [client name],

I have been working on this project for the past week and I have made a lot of progress. The main thing that I have accomplished is to use the [software] tool to find the best way to analyze the data. Because of my work, we can now begin to analyze the data and understand it better.

I am confident in my ability to complete this project in time and with high quality results, but I do need your help with one thing. I need some guidance on how you would like me to organize the results of my analysis into something that is easy for you to understand.

Do you want me to create some kind of visual representation of what we are looking at, or are you more interested in just seeing all of our findings in text form?

Please let me know what you want by September 1st so that we can get started!

Thank you very much for your help!

Shopify Development Project Status Update Example

Hello, [Client Name]!

I'm writing to update you on the progress of the Shopify Development Project.

As we discussed, I've completed the following:

  • Added your logo and images to the header and footer of your site.
  • Enabled a custom domain name on your website.
  • Set up an SSL certificate for your site to protect customer data.

The next step is to create a simple store that sells products, with an inventory management system. This will allow you to start selling products online right away without any additional work needed on my part. I'll get started on this as soon as possible and send you updates along the way so we can make sure everything runs smoothly.

If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please let me know ASAP!

JavaScript Development Project Status Update Example

Hi [Client's First Name],

I just wanted to give you an update on the JavaScript project. I've been working on it all week, and I'm happy to say that I've got most of it done.

The first thing the client asked me to do was to create a new button that would trigger an alert when pressed. After that, they asked me to take the new button and make it so that when clicked, it would open up a new tab in the browser. I did both of those things, and then we ran into a little bit of trouble with the "return" key on the keyboard not working as expected. But after some research and troubleshooting, we figured out what was going on there and got it fixed.

Now my task today is going through everything we've done so far, making sure everything works as intended, and fixing any other bugs that we might find along the way (which are always possible).
