    20K Euros? That's way too much for a piece of crap like that. Trust me, here in India people would not be willing to shell out anything more than 30K INR (which is close to 600 USD) for that.

    Gotta love clueless CEO's

    They like to throw money at problems

    Create an alternative site with proper SEO and show him how it should be done

    Then sell it to him with free hosting

    It goes to show, some businesses have the money and are willing to spend. There are many IM'ers out there and they are closer than you think. This is a good example to at least start trying or someone else will cash out.

    I bet that if you ask the gym owner he is pretty satisfied with the outcome. Most CEOs don't know much about SEO.
    Try writing him an email or even sending a letter explaining how poorly the website was done and how much better you can do. If the guy could pay $20k for that, he certainly has money for a better website.

    I find it hard to believe that businesses spend this much on such websites? ?20K is some serious money. With a month of development time I could probably spend less than ?100 and make a much better website by myself. Though I'd probably spend ?1K and outsource most of the work while raking in the rest as profit. I truly find it hard to believe that people are so stupid. It's frustrating! I feel like typing out a rant but I'm to lazy to do so.

    Well lesson learned then:
    When selling any product or specially services it is all about PERCEIVED VALUE
    Picture this scene:
    Two Doctors talking in the Clinic Coffe Shop...
    Man! it was a slow day today!!! I only made $3.500 usd performing a minor surgery extracting a piece of glass stuck deep on the left foot of a stupid13 yrs old drank girl,

    Dr Friend: Funny... A deeep wound he..? Teenagers are nuts!! but they are hoooot... hehe.

    Dr says: Yeah, her mom was hot as hell, (laugh) Well, she looked desperate so I felt sorry and I only charged their insurance company the average fee..

    Dr Friend: is the chick staying for the night?

    Dr: Of course I told you it was a slow day.. and I will manage to see her mom tomorrow as well.. ha!

    Both have a laugh and leave!!


    NOW: You can picture the idea here right?? :) I strongly believe that we guys do not believe in what we do and thats why we charge peanuts for SERVICES that people can ONLY realte to Complex surgery procedures!!

    No job is difficult but not everybody can perform every single JOB

    SO RESPECT WHAT YOU DO AND CHARGE WHATEVER YOU WANT just dont sell yourself cheap, this will only HARM YOU in the long run!!

    Now imagine a Surgeon Charging 5 usd for a minor surgery in US?? he wont get a single client I guess, prices are suspiciously LOW.. no?

    Doctors and Lawyers.. ( dont make me get into what Lawyers charge for a Single piece of paper crap) and they make millions every year in countries like, Canada, USA UK AU, Japan, Norway, etc, etc, etc

    All they do is to introduce, for example, long tubes into people throats and butts, and take a few pics, then all they do is they charge the world for it!!! - IMAGINE THAT!! and yes you guessed it, Almost anyone could do that with a little of training, in fact I guess some people would even love that kind of JOb lol ;)


    WAKE UP INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDERS!!!

    it is not about competing about prices.. or selling your brain for 15 usd it is about HOW people perceive in terms of complexity the tings that you do for them..

    PLAIN AND SIMPLE

    That CEO might not be as dumb as you think. Consider the possibility that the web designer kicked-back 20,000 EU.
