Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
My thinking for including web design is so my customers can get there site done and also optimized by me, one consultants instead of two. Targeting small business owners. I am okay in design, but will need to spend sometime to get things rolling again, been off of it for a few years. I intend to outsource this portion eventually. May also outsource some of the grunt SEO work.
As my friend suggested, I should just focus on one 1 narrow field: SEO and do some type of referral program with other designers.
I don't want to do this full-time, I want to also focus on my affiliate marketing.
Just outsource the SEO as well, mark it all up, become a manager and don't work at all.
I'm not entirely sure, but I think I sense a hint of sarcasm in that remark.
Why not do what you're best at instead of trying to offer services for the he** of it? If you're best at SEO - do that.
... well this is exactly what I do!
managing projects and marshalling communication between client and offshore designers does not exactly fall under the category of "don't work at all"
clearly you are not a consultant... just kidding...
