Nice prices, but will you do design from scratch or you will just use Premium Wordpress Themes???
Will you direct mail or just mass email them???
I presume you are mailing out examples of your work and offering a special introductory discount valid until 30th September. Consultation free etc ?
If you have targeted and personalised leads then I don't think the pricing structure is too far out. Most business's receive â‚¬300 website deal leaflets all the time. Your portfolio and professionalism should Mark you out as being different.
Look like prices are little high
and if u are just using premium themes than its very high price!
What kind of discount should I be offering? Yes consultation is free!
I presume this is sarcasm lol as thats not cheap!
I charge $2500-$6000 per custom Wordpress site (including responsive coding). I havent had any issues with pricing thus far
Best of luck
atrweb what methods do you use to attract clients with them budgets?
Duffers5000 could you pm, I cant pm yet. Would like to talk more with you.
OP the subject is as much a mindset issue...
Example if you touting those prices in HK you would be walking tall and taking orders...
Then jump on a plane land in Bangkok and offer the same deal - no takers...
OP you have set a price stick to it you have to eat not starve!
Your differentiator will be be your strongest asset stick to your guns...
Are you buying themes from themeforest and selling or are you starting from scratch?
If you're just using premade themes , that's a little high but hey I'm all for high markups.
If you're coding from scratch then that's a good price!
Now I understand why they (BHW members) were surprised by my low prices
give out a discount for the packages and throw in some "freebies" + a nice call to action ...
freebies like 1 year of free hosting ,which is ~ 50$ or just buy a re-seller account with your first payment and you're good to go + brings in other business opportunities because in a year they're gonna have to renew their hosting subs, could land you a lot more clients ...
as duffers said nothings stands out more than a limited time frame and i think you should point out to them that their competition HAS ALREADY PAID FOR SUCH SERVICES AND ARE GETTING GREAT RESULTS! Have fun offline-ing
When you say a nice call to action what do you mean?
The main problem is the time consultation takes, along with a meeting half way through the site build, and then one to finalize everything. This takes 3 afternoons of time at least. Time must be paid for!
Why three in person meetings? I would personally do the second other the phone or through email, people won't expect you to hold their hand the whole way through, plus two meetings before things are finalized leave you vulnerable to wasting quite a bit of time with people who aren't serious. Last meeting to finalize everything and tie someone down is a good idea.
Unfortunately every client I have had so far expects me to do more than hold then hand.
I have realized I need to find better paying clients, but also better quality clients in general.
