1. What is the krabi-Business List Charter?

The krabi-Business list is used by the HTML Writers Guild to discuss matters related to the business/financial/marketing aspects of running an Web Design and/or Web Development business. Discussions about contracts, ethics, copyright, marketing, sales techniques, etc. are most appropriate. Discussing what to charge, prices, etc. is not a topic for this list. If you have a strong desire to discuss what to charge please read the Pricing FAQ prior to posting.

2. What resources does the krabi offer?

Useful URL’s covering a large variety of topics. This is a great first place to look for info.
Mailing list archives would be a good second place to research.
krabi-Business Mailing List Archives
krabi Search – the search engine for krabi site.

3. How do I start a Web Design/Web Development business?

Here is a full plan for how to start a Web Design/Web Development business.

Or you can go to the Mailing List Archives.

4. How Much Do I Charge?

Investigate what others in your market with equal skills are charging. What you charge is also directly related to your overhead. If you are working out of your home without the expense of rent and an office, you may be more flexible and have the ability to offer a less expensive program.

However, the key is to insure that your services offer value to your clients; and more importantly offer you a profit. Determine your expenses, and divide by the number of hours per week you work. That is the minimum hourly wage you *need* to command to be profitable.

Each geographical location has different costs, different services, and different markets. Asking a person in Los Angeles, CA, USA what they make or charge for a particular service really doesn’t apply to someone in Dodge City, KS, USA because the costs and markets are totally different. It applies even less in say: Sao Paulo, Brazil.

In brief you may try public sources available locally for that kind of information. The following sources exist in almost any geographical location in the U.S.:

The public library
The Chamber of Commerce
The Small Business Administration
The Better Business Bureau
Small Business Development Centers (larger cities, usually)
The Internet (published prices on various indexes, or by individual sites)
Pricing is difficult to determine in an industry that has not yet solidified. If you offer high service levels and value, which is important to attaining and maintaining clients, you will have no problem commanding a rate that will allow you to be profitable.

NOTE: Please keep in mind that discussing what to charge for your services on a krabi mailing list is in violation of the Mailing List Actionable Rules. The reason for this ban is listed at the Pricing Discussion FAQ, and are based on the Guild’s desire to avoid even the appearance of “price fixing.”

5. Where can I get contracts?

There are many contract resources on the Web for you to customize for your purposes. However, it is strongly advised to find an attorney well versed in this industry to draw up a contract for you as each business’ service offering is unique and you will need to tailor your agreement to your enterprise.

To work without a contact is opening your business up to liability or legal actions from those who do not understand this industry or technology and may have unrealistic expectations in regards to what services you will offer. A contract gives you the opportunity to make clear each sides responsibilities, liabilities, expectations and recourse. A contract also allows you to address copyright and trademark issues.

Be sure to get legal advice in this area; a contract that is not enforceable is akin to not having a contract al all.

Contract information and resources can be found here: http://webdesign.about.com/cs/legalcontracts/index.htm. .

6. What About Advertising?

Let’s call it marketing. The online environment and your Web presence are only a part of your business’ marketing arsenal. Budget for an aggressive, consistent off-line marketing campaign. Ask yourself, “Where can I tap in to my target market?” and consider these opportunities:

Join Community Groups, Chambers, Clubs
Offer to do Internet Presentations
Donate Web pages to groups you believe in
When marketing in print, ask for the same spot and change your ad often
Yellow pages are critical to tapping into the off-line market not yet online. Most often as a start up, you can get a great rate on your first time in the book
Create strategic alliances with computer businesses, hardware consultants and those related to your field; these companies are a gold mine for referrals
Post a flyer or your business cards at local grocery stores and community buildings
The best marketing of all is client word-of-mouth. Run an ethical business, do quality work, educate your clients, offer high levels of service and support and new clients will find you!
NOTE: Unless specifically allowed in the list-specific rules, we do not allow any kind of advertising messages in the mailing lists, except with previous approval of the List Guide. See The Netiquette Guidelines for more information.

The US Small Business Administration
National Association for the Self-Employed
National Association of Home Based Businesses
National Federation of Independent Business

11. How can I promote my Website?

When you are in the business of creating Web sites, this usually includes promoting the Web sites to increase the amount of traffic to the site. Here are a few pointers to how you can promote your site on the Web:

Search Engine Watch
SearnEnginePosition.com
HighRankings.com
Search Engine Blog
Search Engine Guide
SearchMarketing Info
Please keep in mind that there is no way to completely guarantee that a Website will be listed in the #1 spot all the time. Each search engine works differently and that will affect how a site is listed.

You should also be sure to do some off-line promotion of your site. Advertisements in local papers, magazines and yellow pages can often help increase traffic to your Website. Don’t limit your site promotion to just online tactics.

12. Where can I get some kind of certification for Web design?

IWA’s CWP
NIIT NetVarsity
DigitalThink

13. Can I post a help wanted ad to the list?

Help Wanted posts are not allowed on the Business List. If you wish to post a “Help Wanted” opportunity you must utilize the krabi-Jobs list which was created specifically as a forum for employers, companies and individuals to post opportunities (permanent, temporary, contract, full-time, and part-time) for our member’s review.
