What would you guys say if a client says something like "well in Intuit, the templates are free, they give you full customer services...and so on?I would say, "Have you ever tried to *use* their "full" customer service? It stinks.
Not to mention that Intuit is constantly trying to upsell something or other that one would have expected the originally-purchased product to have done.
I highly dislike Intuit and their services would be among the last I would ever consider using for anything.
Even with Intuit there is still a steep learning curve. They even say on that ad you are talking about that they offer a free 1+ hour tutorial.
Your advantage is customized service. Intuit isn't going to help users position a div nicely, or add a new tab to their nav once you reached the max for that specific template.
Some places want a site and want no knowledge of how or why it works.
Some of my clients email me updates to their sites and they love it.
They send an email, home page change this paragraph to say this "......."
Offer great service and be their webmaster, Inutit doesn't offer a webmaster, just cookie cutter crap.
How do I compete with something like that?
