    Hey guys, I've got a potential client who is very non-technical on the phone right now and I am having trouble getting him to sign a contract for a website. Also, I predict that even if I do get him to sign the contract, he will have concerns with registering for the web hosting account because it requires a credit card. Furthermore I am concerned that if he goes for that, he will be concerned that he has to give me his user id and password so I can upload the files for him. So that's three hurdles for me...if anyone can help me with at least one of them, that would be greatly appreciated.

    My own opinion is that you are looking down the wrong end of the telescope. I have come across these types of people before and more often than not they see you as some kind of scam artist no matter what you do. I have even gone so far as building whole database driven websites for people who then refused to pay.

    Personally I would forget about him and move on, maybe do other businesses around him so he gets to hear about what you have done for others but don't take too long in deciding that this is a dead horse, eventually you will reach a point where he refuses to move forward.

    this guy is a waste of time. one thing i've learned is how to quickly spot time-wasters by
    their questions and their actions. and this screams out 'time waster!!!'

    proceed at your own risk. :D
