What if a client just wants a small, cheap site?

Simple Sites

One way to cut down on time spent dealing with low-end customers is to establish a flat fee for a simple Web site, which might look something like this:

  • 1-hour consultation to understand client's business goals and Web needs
  • Domain registration and hosting setup
  • Home page
  • About Us page
  • News page
  • Two additional content pages
  • Contact Us page
  • Two rounds of revisions
  • Site to be loaded and domain name transferred to client upon receipt of full payment
The exact fee will depend on prevailing freelance Web design rates in your area.

For many small businesses, this is sufficient to get them established on the Web. If you and the client have a good relationship, you can go on to make a case for the value of a more fully developed site; otherwise, you can go your separate ways.
