Hi,

In todays world, there are lots of freelancers you can hire to do jobs like web design, graphic design, marketing services etcetera. I also noticed, that there are a lot of people who need a website for their businesses and are willing to make an investment. I have been thinking and I got this idea. My idea is to offer Wordpress website and plugin development on my own webdesign agency website. I sell a website to a client for $250. After the order has been placed and the client told me the details for the website, I contact a freelance Wordpress developer on a place like Upwork or Fiverr who offers the same service for $125. Which means I'll make a profit of $125. Then I charge separately for hosting monthly or annually. So, in this case I am a middle man, with my own agency. I would like to know what you guys think of this idea and what I should take into account. Any advice is welcome!

How do you think you will handle the revisions? The clients ask you to change the header, make the hero image thinner, change the logo, eat this, shit that and clients expect to own you just because they payed you 250 bucks. No offense but I have seen a lot of dudes who went this direction with zero technical knowledge and give the industry a bad name because of no results or bad customer service.
And for Gods sake don't sell services for 250$. Better give it away for free than being so cheap. My experience with cheap customers have been very terrible.
My advice: Find someone who needs a website. Do it for free and observe the process. If you are ok with it pitch your service to other customers.
