Brendon's business philosophy is based on solid (but not too common) business sense, combined with radical new approaches that has made Brendon's web design business one of the most successful in Australia.His philosophy is based on four fundamentals:1.YOUR WEB DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT SKILLS DON'T MATTERYour average client can't determine the difference between a good and a bad web site. They can't really look at your portfolio and say: "This person makes profitable web sites." Instead, they consider other factors when evaluating you for the job. For example: recommendations from other people, the quality of your brochure, the way you dress or simply your handshake. In the kit, Brendon shows how to make the client very confident that you are the best choice they can make.2.YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE, AND SHOULDN'T BE THE CHEAPEST BIDDER TO WINBrendon's company is almost always several times more expensive than his competitors, but he still gets 90% of the jobs he pitches for. This is due to his customer service, his meeting approach, his proposals and, well, you'll have to read the kit to find out.3.WHEN THE PROJECT FINISHES, YOUR INCOME SHOULD NOTWeb development is very well adapted for selling extra services. Most of Brendon's income is from services bought by existing clients. Brendon is a big believer in keeping clients for life, and in this kit, he explains in great detail exactly how he does it.4.YOUR CLIENTS ARE EVERYWHEREBrendon retells the story of how a 50 cent map of a conference floor with exhibitor names lead to over $100,000 in new business for his firm. The kit is chock-full of ideas for finding, and reaching new prospects for your services, including your competitor's clients.What does the kit contain?When you orderThe Web Design Business Kit 2.0, you will receive a rather large box delivered straight to your doorstep.
