I am looking for a good general template or needs assessment questionnaire I can give to potential clients upfront as a guide to writing a website development RFP. As some of you are aware smaller and midsize businesses are in the habit of simply asking" how much does it cost to design a website" and that is it. Being a creative director, I am not all that well versed with what questions to ask related to technologies and back-end development. This would be something i also would need some direction on or sample.
They're not complete but Microsoft Template Gallery (easily found with a search) has documents that give some really good ideas. I've seen a couple that are good starters.
There's one that's a follow-up letter asking if they're still interested, that the proposal price was for a limited time. Not a bad idea to put in. I've had people unexpectely contact me after 6 months or more; there was just one this week, and another last week - and fees have changed. It's easier to make that clear at first than to have to explain it later on.
