Building Websites: (Range: $35 to $200 per hour)
Business owners will gladly pay for someone to help get their site going. This option is highly profitable, but also the most time consuming. If you have an eye for design and simple page layout, then this is the option for you. Simply consult with the business owner to determine exactly what he or she is looking for... and then build it for them using PageBuilder.com.
Hint: Don't try to sell a larger site than the client needs. Remember that it has to produce a significant return on investment for your client to remain happy. If they only need a five page site... sell them a five page site. They can always upgade if they need more room.
Software Training: (Range: $25 to $75 per hour)
Another very profitable option is software training. No one likes to read manuals. Once you learn how the PageBuilder system operates, you will be in a unique position to train others. This option is very popular with businesses on a tight budget. Why? Because it allows them to get a head start on the design work, but its not as expensive as having someone build the entire site. Quality training usually lasts five to eight hours.
Hint: Software training can often lead to website development, consulting and other billable services.
Website Maintenance: (Range: $35 to $200 per hour)
Maintaining a clients website often happens in one of two ways. Either they build out the content on their own and ask for your help in "cleaning it up", or they simply rely on you for everything. If you bill for your time, either one is a winning option.
Hint: Don't bill your clients for every little thing you do for them. However, you should mark those services with "No Charge" on your next invoice. Your clients will be less likely to complain when you have to bill for significant projects.
Consulting: (Range: $35 to $200 per hour)
The opportunity here is limitless. Whether you are consulting on the placement of images on a page or how to sell items on e-bay, you should bill for your time. Knowledge about specific areas, especially based on experience, is valuable and you should treat it as such.
Hint: Don't try to bill for services that you have no experience with. Pick a client to try that service with and, if it works, bill for it next time.
Custom Graphics: ($100 to $200 per hour)
The ability to create custom website designs (i.e. the background, or surrounding graphics) is the most profitable. It requires a good working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop as well as the assistance of a PageBuilder authorized technician or cobranded partner. This is not an easy task. However, once it is mastered, it will allow you to make the most amount of money in the least amount of time.
Hint: Custom Graphics are often used as a bonus and not billed to add value to designing an entire site.
Digital Photography: ($25 to $40 per hour - Unless you're a professional)
Taking pictures for a client is the easiest revenue producing task. Both clients and site visitors want to see pictures on the website so take your time and make them nice. If you know how to use photo editing software, charge a little extra for touching up the pictures.
Hint: You don't have to have a digital camera... Any film developer will have an option to get your images on CD.
The Possibilities Are Endless!
