"i just want 1 webpage." we developers think page, non-savy think page = the website Standards compliant template? what is that? Illustration? I want a webpage, not a painting Animation? I want a webpage not a cartoon Copywriting? I want a webpage, not a copyright hosting? what's hosting? and i can go on through the rest of the list just the same. the idea is great- hell, progressive.com and all the other major can insurance companies here in the states have it and instant buying. The problem, is that everyone knows what liability, collision, and theft are. at least i would hope so if they are looking for insurance. I can't say the same however for Joe P. Businessowner about the web. Playing both support guy and developer guy at my small firm, it amazes me everyday the questions i get asked by PhD's in business about the most basic of windows/office, etc. If i asked them if they wanted a standards compliant animated and illustrated webpage, they'd look at me like i was on drugs with a very confused look. On the other hand, In my free-lance-professional side of things, I think its a bad idea for a small company to do such a thing as even post rates, especialyl for something that is so custom done. Perhaps, at most, a "Complete websites from $99. Free Consultation!" or whatever would be more appropriate.
