I'm in a bit of a quandary: Until now I have done quite a few commercial and portfolio websites - where either the text is minimal or the product content is the main content - but here I been asked to do a website for a service-oriented business that doesn't sell any product at all. All that is important in the website is the company name and contact info that would appear on the landing page.
The problem is, if my (potential) client wants to appear high in search results, his site has to (at least) contain quality content that matches/betters that of his competitors. Yet he is asking ~me~ to write the text about a trade I do not know, and in a language that is not natively my own.
Our negotiations are beginning to wear thin - what would you do in this sort of situation?
