That's interesting; I think all of the questions you listed
are about marketing.

I realise that people have their own way of working and so
forgive this question, but is there any reason you're not
charging for working out these answers with your client?

Requirements-gathering is the bit I most enjoy about web sites
and it's often our first chargeable step (a competitor review
can happen first).  My reasoning is that a company goes to a
web person/company for their expertise, not just in web site
design and construction but in knowing how the web site can
support their day-to-day activities and generate income.
