    1. Nah for free sites I want to keep them smaller but high quality - less time for me to make but they still have the same leverage to get real sales later. Future sites will be bigger.

    2. The gym site will take maybe 30 hours all in. But it varies so much on each project - I don't have an exact figure really.

    3. Ya later I will build a team and outsource etc. The whole year won't be me by myself - more showing people how to scale and grow as best as possible. For now, though I try do the most I can myself to replicate someone else's experience starting off.

    ---

    So just got the gym promo video made up. Site should be live Monday...

    I shot all this in one night and then edited the next morning. Around 7 hours of work.

    Nice work! I think you got more than just web design as a selling point, because your video production is spectacular. How do you do those fluid moving shots? What equipment and techniques do you use?

    Is there a way to make continuous income from clients, perhaps for handling hosting payments? Or is it just the one time payment for the job? Thanks.

    There are tons of ways to generate recurring income in web development. Most commonly, web dev shops will be hosting resellers. They will have a dedicated server that they maintain that is supported by some like AWS, Rackspace, Digital Ocean, etc. then re-sell those servers to clients at a premium while also maintaining those servers.

    Another way is to sell block hours on a monthly basis. I.e. a retainer for development. If the company makes lots of updates to their site regularly, selling them block hours at a reduced price from the regular hourly pricing can generate revenue.

    However, these classic principles don't really align with what @Fox is doing here. Fox is doing project based only sites, cranking out a project for an awesome price, then moving on. I've been in development for about a decade, and can tell you that Fox's method is the way to go. Selling sub services and pitching by the hour can make your life hell.

    I presume you mean meeting a prospect rather than a client?

    If I meet a prospect, which I rarely do, then I *prefer* to meet in coffee shops.

    If I travel to a coffee shop near them then they also have to make a small effort to leave their offices and meet me. It’s a nice little filter.

    A coffee shop is also neutral ground and we’re meeting as peers. I’m a business owner chatting to another business owner.

    By making it a chat over coffee then we’re avoiding the “sales dance” and can build a proper relationship.

    Some folks, such as tradesmen, are used to traveling and meeting people in all sorts of offices and dwellings. If you’re working on a computer at home they often respect that. 1) Because they’d love to work from home sometimes. 2) Because they figure they’re not paying for your office.


    All of the above to warn you to be careful of dismissing things so easily.

    I often ask myself: Do I really need that? Is it possible someone in the world does very well without that?

    If Fox or another member wants some work under their belt for their portfolio I have a website that could use some improvements or even be redesigned all together. I will give you a testimonial afterwards too.

    Camera + Stabilizer/gimball = smooth shots. He probably also uses a lens with image stabilization. He can also fix any shakiness in Post Production

    There's a psychological reason behind coffee. It's due to association.

    For example, you and your girlfriend have a favorite song together. You two break up one day. Now whenever you hear that one song, it hurts. You hate it now.

    Coffee is warm. Whenever you drink coffee with a person, your brain associates the feeling of warmness with the other person.

    Thanks, yes video and photos are something I want to offer as time goes on. The bigger plan over the next few years is building full sales systems that add a ton of value in a lot of different ways. Not "funnels" (since that is mostly for online purchases, but more an online pre-sell system that has buyers warmed up and ready to spend when they connect with the offline business part of the sales process. So videos are a great skill for this.

    I have a basic Sony a7 camera, 35mm lens (for this video), and a stabilizer, its a Zhiyun Crane 2.


    Yes tons of things you can offer monthly. Things like ads (social media, google), SEO (blog posts, backlinks, guest posts, articles and content), hosting and maintenance, email systems etc.

    Depends on what you want and how you would like your own business set up to be.

    Thanks. Yes, I think this will help them in a big way over time.

    Great post, thanks. Yes I like one-off payments. Big cash up front haha!

    Thanks but I won't be accepting websites from people on the forum for the challenge, I want to show how its possible for others so using advantages like this forum and my FB group is off the table. I appreciate it though - I am sure someone else can help you out.

    New video up.

    This is starting to move in the direction I was aiming for - real details and info about actual website projects. Still a long way to go with production but this is the video I am probably most happy with so far.




    Just HTML themes for now - simple and fast.

    I agree, I think I'm more jealous of your righteous beard than your success.
