    In Your M!nd
    So I had an idea to test the market, I'm not in the US, for webdesign services.. I got out well-dressed with my iphone that's loaded with a few templates screenshots.

    I had a goal in mind that I'm going to target car rental shops and car dealers along the way.

    The issue is, even when someone had a website, and paying 200$ a year to power it, when I offered less, 50$/year, they just don't care!
    Got some electronics mall and had a talk, he wants me to work full time, he interviewed me. That was just a fast talk. And I don't really think I'd work 9-5 job. By the way, this is the middle east!

    I don't know about these fish-oil companies that are milking this, but 200$ a year when you can do it on free shared hosting since these websites never get traffic.

    I have a real urge to fuck these so called web-design companies. This is my goal, by offering it for less. Dump a professional template, and it's done.
    My script is simple : Hi, I'm offering a new idea to empower your business by designing a website that's compatible with any device. That will cost less than "others" at a same or better quality.
    Sometimes I'd flip it along these lines:
    You know these days, everyone searches for cars on the internet...
    Responses: Yea we post on dubizzle and olx(weblistings).

    Most responses I'm getting right now is: leave your phone number and comeback later. Some fishy stores can even do it "themselves" Lol. And others would say we already have a website, which is basically a facebook page!

    This is just an update to this 2-days journey(4-5 hours going out), I'm charging 300$/350$ for the webdesign. When most companies are going for 1000$ and 500$.

    Good on you for getting out there OP.

    It obviously varies from country to country, but I think the thing is that business owners are being sold websites and online services all day everyday.

    Do you know how many spammers email me everyday offering SEO/Website Design, on email accounts that I have never used to opt in to anything, it's ridiculous!

    As soon as the average business owner hears the word website, they already have the idea of "nope" engrained into them. This is from my personal experience and is my 2cents, it may be different in other countries/cases
