wow good services wow did not know that its that chaep wow
Yeah, I kinda looked at the competition in my area, and got some formal quotes from competitors on craigslist and localy, I saw that I could compete locally with the pricing structure I setup, i reduced my monthly cycles from 1 year to 6 months to bring in the money faster.
But I focus mainly on the Joomla platform, I tried wordpress as it is more search engine friendly but Im just so use to Joomla now, they just got updated to 1.7 and virtumart shopping cart extension is now at 2.0 stable, alot of new improvements have been made for search engines.
I would recommend everyone getting the web design Business Kit v3 just for the documentation and paper work- this thread is being updated -
r else just google : "[GET]web design business kit v3" with out quotes, and change the search by either with in the last month or year in search tools to get latest links that are not broken or taken down.
if you cant find the business kit then you can download some PSD templates for you business proposal and webdesign briefing. from here:

I dont know if I mentioned this earlier, but you can download some nulled templates and set them up as a sub-domains from your main website, lets say look for a pizza joomla or wordpress template ( if you got a nulled template make note of where it is being sold at, you will need to get the original template once some ones buys the site from you) or you can create one yourself, either from an existing template or using Artisteer template maker for Joomla and wordpress. Create a site and polish off the main home page only. Make it look good. Then go on yelp and look for pizzerias in your local city, then start targeting these businesses, target all of them , even if they have a site already, the key is to make the site look better than theirs. there are around 35 pizzerias in my surrounding area, sell these sites cheap, say $375 bucks, include a new Google voice number and add the google voice widget to the website and show of the functionality of the website to the potential client, the reason I said only charge $375 is because you will sell the website design to a handful of other pizzerias, changing up only the logo and maybe preset colors and ofcorse general info, but the design aspect of the site will stay the same. just sell it to 10 pizzerias out of the 35-100 that are out there and you easily made $3,750 dollars out of a $30 dollar template and around 3-4 hours of work on each site.
Then rinse and repeat with Dentis, Contractors, plumbers, Attorneys, ect.
Hope this helps out some of you, I really hope some one dose not copy this and convert it into a WSO.
I encourage any one to share any other types of ways to create income streams. If some are shared I will post more on how to make money off ebay buy selling legitimate stuff, and if you live in Los Angeles , i'll show you where you can go to buy really inexpensive merchandise.
One quick tip, if you happen to come across any one interested in having an eCommerce site done and you feel that the products being sold will sell, try an do a partner ship. I did an eCommerce site for free, and only charge a percentage of each sale made on the website ( write up a contract for this) this will bring in residual income.
Of course this is an abridged version of the business model that i am currently using. tip: use different types of models. There are many types of clients out there, the main two are the clients that know exactly what they want and the ones that dont know anything and expect you to do everything including all the content writing aspects of the site. I find the second to be the easiest, this is usually the case with brick and mortar businesses that offer services or sales.
Another way to get an extra income stream from existing clients is to offer PPC Adwords management, sign up for the Google Engage for Agencies
. Watch the videos and take the test, you will become Google Adwords Certified and will be getting $100 dollar vouchers for your clients. And just charge monthly for you to manage their Adwords campaigns.
