      Thanks All... DWolfe... I am just a one horse show, so I will probably not outsource any of this. I'm too damn picky and don't like babysitting to get something done the way I want it.

      All sites will be custom child themes using the Genesis framework. It typically takes me about 6-8 hours to set one of these up on my server. The toughest part is getting the content from the clients in a timely manner.

      iAmNameLess... I too have been up and down. Stick with it... Make it happen!

      Today I called the client that referred Thursday's deal to thank him for the referral. He said... "No thanks necessary, just keep doing what you are doing for us and all is good... Oh, by-the-way, we have another dealer coming in next week and most likely will have another referral coming your way."

        Great job George. Genesis is a versatile Worpdress theme, but you have to check out Pagelines Platform Pro also. Not sure how long it's been out. It's drag and drop AND highly customizable. Obviously it doesn't work for every client just like WP isn't the answer for everyone.

        Yep. Even more when they labor over every word you provide and the copy editing takes 3 times longer than the original technical side.

    May is starting out bad for me... I'm used to monthly fast starts, but this month has been brutal. I lost a few very important clients as well... Oh well, we'll see what happens in the next week.

      I think May is a better month so far. Better than January and February.

    Terry, My clients are providing the content on all three sites. Typically I will rework the content a bit here and there for SEO and marketing purposes. If I were to provide the content it would be about $100 more per page.

    The $1500.00 deal is for a CPA and a member of my BNI group. The low price is based upon this person generating a fair amount of referrals with their client base.

    The $4100.00 deal is for a commercial real estate firm who already has provided a referral for an attorney. They are also a member of the local Main Street project sponsored by the Chamber... (I have previously built out 3 other Chamber sites and just wrapped up the Main Street site which makes 4 sites for the Chamber)

    The only active marketing I do is weekly BNI meeting for an hour and a half and community involvement (Chamber). I have no other marketing than taking care of existing clients.

    Leads just seem attracted to me and as a result I am able to pick and choose who I want to work with.

      Thanks Jacqui! I appreciate all you do for the offline community.

      I've got another fish nibbling... hopefully it will close in a week or two.

      $7500.00 setup and $2000.00 per month for a year = $31500.00

      The way the deal is structured is the 2K is on-going in perpetuity... as long as it works it stays in effect.

      Totally agree... it's us or bust! They know they need it!

      I have a client that that received 536 leads in the past 30 days (according to Google Analytics) with a 31.13% Goal Conversion Rate.

      Of those they are setting appointments for 1 out of three (the rest go into the hopper for on-going marketing).

      Of the set appointments they are closing around 30% with an average deal weighing in at $7625.00

      This represents over $400K in sales.

      I just might not be charging them enough! LOL!

      Anyhow, they are making up for it in referring me to a few select peers outside of their marketing area. When their referral contacts me, they are pretty well pre-sold.

      It just might be time to scale this up a bit.
