Before I get into the main point of this post, let me tell you a story. On my site BobWP.com for years and years the most popular post on the site was titled, How to Create Two Blogs on a Single WordPress Site. This post was updated three times and generated over 200k views and over 1,000 comments. Primarily the comments where as simple as a genuine “thank you” or “this is what I have been trying to figure out for so long“
What was the post about? In a nutshell it showed people how to use categories.

We have to remember we have all been there.
The point that I am leading to is that what you may think is the simplest solution must always be shared with clients no matter how many times you may have repeated it to others.

See what I mean?
With that said, I am not suggesting that you keep these in the forefront of your mind when working with clients on their sites, but instead, when they ask you about them, smile and say, “That’s a very good question. Let me explain it to you“.
Because likely your answer will mean the world to your client.
