Your business will probably need a website at some point. Where do you start?
If you’re a freelance web designer, you’ve probably received a vague email enquiry asking for a quote.
The email is usually short on detail, high on expectation and ends with the most beloved of questions: how much does a website cost?
It’s a common frustration for freelance web designers. But it doesn’t have to be. Let me explain.
If you don’t sell a product on your website, is it just a vanity project?
A website is an investment. It takes time, effort, thought and money to make a website authentically reflect your business.
But if you’re a small business or freelancer and you don’t sell physical products or rely on your website to generate leads, why do you need one?
Let’s face it: Non Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) are a pain in the backside for freelancers. Not only are they undecipherable, but they prevent you from displaying your work and limit your ability to take on related projects.
