Need a website made

I am building my portfolio up, so offering my services at a reduced rate.

I can create any type of site and exceed the capabilities of the major CF site design sites at a fraction of the cost.

Also, I've been an affiliate owner for over 8 years, so I know what's important and what works to bring in new.members and keep them (aside from coaching).

Shoot me a text 910-599-1055 if you need a website made or redesign, branding created or help marketing.

Also email coach.ezekielm@gmail.com

2 day turn around on all sites.

Re: Need a website made

"2 day turn around" is a bold statement unless you're just using the same theme and rebranding it.

Re: Need a website made

Can I see your portfolio and/or links to sites you've designed?

Thanks

I believe in transparency since I'm in the same line of work, and since you didn't really respond to my initial question, I'll clarify to everyone.

Your sites are based off of pre-existing themes/frameworks. These are not custom designs. (Example - here's the rachelcapone site's theme: http://theme.co/x/demo/integrity/4/ (wfs)). There is nothing wrong with these necessarily, but you should be honest with people with the work that you're doing and how you're able to do a site in two days as you say.

There is definitely money to be saved with going this route for some clients. However, in my experience, a lot of gym owners have absolutely no knowledge or desire to do much more than login and post workouts. Wordpress is made so admins can easily change things around without needing to invoice a developer such as yourself. The caveat is that is has to be built correctly to make this easy. My experience with packages themes is that they offer so much flexibility and options that it is overwhelming and more confusing for the admin.

So anyways, just clarifying to everyone the service that you're offering. Not saying it's good or bad, just making it clear.

Re: Need a website made

Jeremy, I thought you meant using the clients same theme and rebranding it, not my own.

It's simple - you show me what site you like and I create one for you.

Why reinvent the wheel and develop a site from scratch for each client when someone else has already created the framework with the functionality and aesthetics they want.

Get off the nerd pedastal bro.

I paid Sites as RX $1000 to do my site back in the day because I didn't have time to customize it because I was busy with clients. I'm offering the same service for less.

Re: Need a website made

Show me one custom made affiliate site from scratch. It's a waste of time and money for what people need it for.

I can make those too, but it'd be in the upwards of 5,000 to create the framework.

Re: Need a website made

I'm not on a 'nerd pedastal'. I just believe in being transparent with potential clients about what they're getting.

And there's no need to get offensive - I stated multiple times that there's nothing wrong with doing it that way and it can work well for some clients. There are many positives and negatives about building a site that way.

I used OP2.0 to build my site.

You need to understand online marketing to optimize your sites for conversions.

Pretty websites don't mean they convert.

Provide sites that convert and you have something to offer.
