A couple weeks back, I had finished designed and developing a custom website for an mortgage company based in St. Catharines, Ontario.
I’ve been doing web design, web development and consulting for quite a number of years now. Learning how to properly price your services as a web consultant can be tough.
A couple weeks back, I had finished designed and developing a custom website for an architectural firm based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. M.J. Dixon is the firm!
When dealing with potential clients, I often get asked, “Why do I need a website? My business runs just fine without one!”
“…I have a Facebook page! That’s all I need!’
So let’s say you’re a potential client reading this post and are pondering at the idea of hiring a web designer to redesign your website. Or, maybe you have to convince your stubborn boss, who doesn’t realize that your company needs a redesign done.
Better yet, you’re a fellow web designer / developer looking for reasons to convince a potential client that they need a fresh redesign of their site.
Whenever I take on a client, one of the first questions they always ask is, “I want a custom website, but do I need a CMS?”.
Many times, when it comes to web design and development, my clients don’t even know what a CMS is, or what the point of one is. Which is totally okay – most people don’t know what a CMS is (only us developers do! ;).
So, let’s take the guess work out of it.
