So here's a quick intro. Basically I made a short video and sent it to a restaurant chain with 5 restaurants.
The video was showing how many searches are made each month for various terms relating to the 5 restaurants and a few generic search terms.
In all the searches totaled 7000 monthly searches every month performed by mobile users.
I then went on to show how their site looked on an iphone emulator and showed them a sample semi personalised mobile site.
I then set up a landing page and put the video on it and sent a message through the contact form with a brief message and the link to the landing page.
Now the message was addressed to a manager of one of the restaurants in the chain.
I used to work under him in another restaurant chain (had 50 restaurants and was owned by the same owner of this new chain)
It turns out that the owner of the whole chain seen my message and video and actually personally passed it onto the manager it was intended for.
The manager called me and said the owner had requested a meeting with me for the very next day, I couldn't attend so they rescheduled for Monday morning.
So now I'm going there on Monday to speak about setting their site up.
It will have a about page, contact, find us with 5 maps one for each restaurant, menu and facebook and twitter links.
How much do you think I should charge for such a site, obviously they will probably want other things added too.
Knowing that they are a chain they can deffinitely pay a decent price, however because I know the manager should I give them a deal and get some referrals because they both have a lot of contacts.
Any thought would be great, by the way I was also pondering signing them up to a month trial of sms marketing in the restaurant in my city with a view to branching out into all of the others depending on the month trial results.
What do you think?
P.S Sorry for the long post just wanted to give you enough information to give a good idea of where I stand
