I need a list of EVERYTHING I can provide to my web design customers ranging from external sources to internal... an example list...


  • PayPal account creation
  • Sitelevel account creation
  • Custom Menu

  • List of sites offering custom menus

  • Google checkout creation


  • And please include if I should charge for this or include it into a certain package (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum)... If I should charge for this service, what's a good price?

    I'm always glad to help others, hopefully I can get some help... I am kind of new to building websites for other people!

    I'm doing something similar focusing on local businesses. I don't want to discourage you, but I would suggest you build a few sites to completion before offering to build for others. That will answer a lot of those questions.

    Just my 2 cents. Best of luck.

    lol, well, my encyclopedia will never be completed, so as far as that site, it technically is "completed" and a pretty large site at that. I also have a landscaping website I consider to be complete, and a few others, so I actually consider myself to have completed this task.

    I agree with Margie, make a list yourself, build the website and then we will help you on approving your list/website.

    yea, but there's experts out there (and on the Yola community) who might have so many more resources than I've ever known about. Just thought it would be a big help to compile a list from others.

    And no matter how good you are with building your own websites, it's still hard to determine what someone else is willing to pay for certain features. Having help with my pricing would be greatly appreciated.

    Like take my encyclopedia for example... I consider it to be a $5,000 or more website (if someone else built it)... but that's just to pay for their time. And I'm sure everyone else would disagree with that amount... cause I assume that's how much it's worth because of my lack of experience creating sites for others.

    You sound like my husband who loves completeness! lol
    Some items to include: slideshows, galleries, chat rooms (meebo), live chat (comm 100), forums, forms, email newsletters (Mail Chimp), games, graphics, banners, menus, blogs, web content, logos, backgrounds, banner ads, web maintenance, proof reading, news feeds, social media (twitter, facebook, etc.), links, seo

    As for pricing, your guess is as good as mine. Cover your costs and add what you would be happy getting! Even with set prices you will probably find yourself giving someone a "good deal" or adding a bit for extra time and trouble. Hope this helps.

    Do you think I should add a fifth package that will include ANYTHING the customer wants, but at a more expensive rate? However, I'm afraid to do something like this and find I'm making $600 for a month of work! lol

    You may have noticed my previous question about prefilling an email message. I was thinking about prefilling the email message to include some sort of list for the customer and tell them to check off items they want in the message! It will be easier for me to give a quote if I know exactly what they want and if they know exactly what I can provide them, but of course, would like this information to be prefilled into an email if possible.

    I wouldn't make it a package--tell them to ask for a quote for custom items. You could make a form instead of a prefill--there are lots of 3rd party form websites out there--wufoo and forms assembly are integrated into Yola and they both have free packages. You can also do forms with Google apps.
