    Hi guys.. I have a question to ask for offline marketer that are taking webdesign job.

    Do you usually prepare the contents and photos as well?
    Or you ask your client to prepare them and send them to you?

    I really need to know how you guys handle your client.

    Well that is really down to your situation. You have to weigh up what is best for you and your client. If it will be very hard for you to take the right pictures, and convenient for your client to do it, then let them.

    Depending on your budget you could also hire a local photographer to take care of it for you.

    I usually ask the client straight up what content they have, if they need a domain and hosting etc. And then just make a fancy quotation for them.

    I have been doing this and the way to avoid headaches is to have some form they fill out where you ask EVERYTHING. So... what do they want, budget, time frame, do they have photos/video/content available. That way you can know exactly what to charge in case you need content creation, seo, etc.

    Have that form with some check boxes then you make it simple for them and yourself. It also gives good documentation.

    Yeah the checkbox idea is good but if you're doing it via the phone or a face-to-face meeting, you can also just have a checklist where you ask them if they'll be doing it or you. In some cases, you may just get away with using stock images if they don't have a typical brick-and-mortar business as well (like if they're a small-time plumber for example). However, even then, stock images cost $ so you have to mark up the price a little to compensate.
