  2. Very informative stuff. From experience, it takes that first project that
    makes it the last time with underpricing projects. Nice vid!

  3. Mike is it best to wait until you receive the full payment before
    delivering the final project to the customer?

  5. Do you usually do a monthly recurring revenue? I like to get all customers
    on a monthly recurring hosting and maintenance commission so that I can
    have that guaranteed income each month.

  6. Keep in mind, clients pay for skill and expertise. Its not something
    everyone can do / has the time to do. A website is a full time sales and
    marketing employee for a business that works 24 / 7 365. We’re in the
    business of making other peoples businesses look better, have more appeal,
    be easier to interact with and bring in cash / goodwill for them. You
    should charge accordingly.

  10. Very good information Michael, thank you! For someone like myself who is
    not a professional web designer but has coded quite a bit of sites for
    personal use, and who works with a school district for System Admin stuff,
    what kind of pricing do you feel would be reasonable for me to charge if I
    setup a 10 + Page using WordPress. Like you, I will help them sign up with
    hosting but that’s up to them. I have the site up for preview and ready to
    go.

  11. (Part 2) Really all ecommerce sites are just a few templates that are
    dynamically filled with content from a database. You’ve got your basic
    product template, checkout template, homepage template, etc. All you’ve got
    to do is design your site, code it, then plug in the code from the
    ecommerce software. It’s a lot of work and takes practice and framework
    familiarity, but you’ll get the hang of it.

  12. like your videos, but you never lower your price offer just to get the job,
    you only lower your price only and only when the job deliverables are
    lowered.

  13. How do you land $2500/ 5 pager clients? All these designers are lowballing
    and driving down prices. Clients expect to pay cheap junk and get awesome
    sites (not gonna happen) How do you deal with all the idiot lowballer
    designers who are making it hard for real ones?

  14. Really nice video, it has helped a lot. I’ve always wonder what sort of
    price range I should be looking for in my design contracts. I only
    disagree with the contract part when you said you might not write a
    contract for some clients. Even if you trust them, you can never be too
    certain, in my view 🙂 You are lucky if you never had trouble with any of
    your clients by skipping the contract sometimes.

    Anyways, that was instructive :)

  15. lol I’m somewhat of a beginner but I could only wish for 500$ per job.
    There’s so many webdesigners around these days and people tend to value web
    stuff extremely low.

  16. Nice!

  17. I think client’s are willing to pay more if the quality is better, or at
    least seems to be a better deal, which is all up to the salesmen. It’s
    fine being a designer, but if you can’t sell yourself, which is what you
    are doing, then you should hire someone that can or get a partner that can
    sell. I’ve been building sites for 16 years now and I have noticed a drop
    in prices, however if you add more features and quality you can still get
    10k for a website. I also sell leads if anyone is interested let me know,
    they are very high-quality.

  21. Hi Mike, what’s your take on doing a 6 month contract job working with a
    recruiter?

  22. a question :
    I make a design and develop it to code it and it’s done
    the next step more likly would be fill in content should I make the content
    or should the client give me the content that he wants on his web page ?

    edit: with content i mean like information about the company services and
    stuff

  23. Mike awesome website! If I’m starting out as a web designer and write up a
    contract with a client, do you require half the payment up front and the
    rest later? I just don’t want to get ripped off and feel mad afterwards.
    What’s your opinion about contracts?
