  1. Thanks for the reply TimW!
  2. Hi Guys, Many thanks for the replies, really appreicate it! So I am 2 weeks into my freelance business and have 2 potential clients that are interested. I am using squarespace to create my sites since I am targeting smaller businesses. I have actually had a few businesses say I they cannot afford my prices which blows me away so wanted to know what you thought of it. I'm charging £199.00 for up to 10 pages, custom domain, I will custom design to their needs and implement basic seo. The hosting is £10 per month which I think is the part that puts a lot of them off but still I believe I am charging peanuts compared to a lot of companies. I am looking to put the prices up once I get a better flow of clients. Any advice would be really appreciated! Thanks, Yelsha
  3. Hey Guys, Been reading this forum for a while now and only just joined, some very good info on here so thank you all first of all. I've been designing and building websites for a few years now as a hobby and have just finished my site for my freelance business to get a bit of extra income. I am targeting small businesses and sole traders in my local area who need professional looking static sites. I'll be using wordpress and squarespace. I was wondering what you guys thought of website packages and whether you have had any success selling them to clients. I know a lot of web designers don't do this and prefer to discuss a clients requirements first and then quote them. As I am building fairly basic websites I think I can get the majority of info I need from a form so was thinking of selling packages which prompts you to fill the requirements needed for the site and then agreeing to a contract before paying at checkout. The price I have put for the packages suit the time frames I know i can complete the sites. I have seen a few top web agency use this model. Have any of you used this model and was it successful for smaller businesses? Any advice would be really appreciated! Thanks in advance for anyone who replies, Ashley
