01. Questions for website building
- Do you work with other web agencies or direct clients for the website work.
- How do you price your website work, is it per hour or fixed weekly hours or per project or task estimate.
- Is this all white label work, that means you cannot display it in your public portfolio.
- Besides davidwaumsley.com website, what is the story behind your new “WP Cornershop” brand as a web front for offering website building services.
02. Book a Day website building service
- At a price tag of 300 pounds a day (which is around 390 USD), how many days does a simple 5 pages brochure website would take.
- What kind of preparation work you do with a client before “that booked day” arrives.
- What happens during that day, like do you sit with a client in person or on a video call and then build a website.
03. After building website care plans
- When do you pitch monthly maintenance and website care plans to people who use your “book your day” service to get their websites built
- How much has been the conversion rate for your website clients opting for the care plan as against not opting for it.
- Your monthly care plans pricing is on the lower side, is there specific reasoning for the low pricing and are such prices sustainable.
- Which tools and services do you use to manage client websites on the care plan.
04. Fixed vs Value Pricing for projects
- What are your views on fixed pricing for website projects as against value pricing based on the client’s value proposition from the website in question.
- A lot of people in the online world teach and emphasis on the concept of value pricing. But, when you are working on the lower end of website projects like less than $6K -- does value pricing has any value there.
05. New ways of engaging with website clients
- Exploring more new ways of engaging with website clients during website build process like live training or courses baked with live training.
- One way is getting into turnkey solutions (multisite), live courses for clients like 2 weeks course, one to one time, live videos in a group.
