Hi, I was thinking about starting some offline 'business'. I want to start building websites for people and was planning to make an advert on a local newspaper. Anyways, I have some questions and am hoping that someone can help me. 1. Do I need to give official invoices with my TAX number and stuff, or I don't need that? 2. How do you go about meeting with the client? Do you go to their house/office or they come to yours? 3. How much do you charge for let's say a basic HTML 5 page website? and what if the client needs something more advanced with PHP like registering people and stuff? [I know about the free website and hostgator method, but I don't want that] 4. Do you request a monthly maintenance fee and hosting? (I can host on my hosting and give them FTP access) EDIT: 5. Should I ask for the monthly fee to be paid yearly upfront? or should I let them pay month by month? 6. Should I first develop the site and then they pay me or should I ask for a small % upfront? 7. Should I make something like a contract like for example what will I offer and what happens if he stops paying and stuff? I think that is all, appreciate your help guys!
