    i have a way of targeting almost any niche that i want to work with so getting leads and clients shouldn't be an issue. I will basically be offering web design service for whoever i decide to work with, but i want to know what do you feel is the easiest clients to work with, Dentist, spa's, construction company's etc etc... once they hire me i want to be able to send them a template of questions to fill out for their website, set it up and get paid, clients who aren't really needy, like restaurants or retail businesses.. a good niche who wouldn't mind spending $200 - $400 for a website

    any suggestions?

    thanks

    $200-$400 will be small businesses. I would try to go after some local small shops that do not need much on their website, like just some info about their services that does not need updating.

    I have found it hard to sell a website for $xxx but found it much easier to rent to someone for $xx-$xxx a month If you go to a business like a dentist, offer them a free site set-up, and charge them $40-$50 a month. Put them up on a $5 hosting plan form hostforweb, or something similar, and make life-long money instead of one time. It is also good because you can maintain control of the domain name, and if they try and switch companies you can convince them to stick with you to keep their domain name.

    If you can get some good seo, and work that into the plan you can rent a website for $200+ a month no problem.

    You could also try to charge more. Recently talked to a dentist who payed $3500 (!) for a low-arse site. It's designed with html. No php.
