A few recent prospects have been put off from taking up my services by the relatively high upfront fee of building a site from scratch. I've been thinking of offering a nominal setup fee and then charging for maintanence - I tend to work in e-comm areas and so the maintanence would be product updates, additions, promotion work etc.
Let's assume a cast iron contract was signed so that I'd be guaranteed a certain length of maintanence. Has anyone made a success of this kind of model?
