Not sure if I'm in the right area bit here goes
I have a new client who wants a website.
They are a larger contracting company in the mining industry looking for a presence online.
I have asked them what type of site they want to which they replied something like http://www.jaxon.net.au/
Usually i would send them a quote with a proposal and agreement then start designing a handful of concepts.
Im thinking of selling providing 2 quotes, one custom xhtml solution vs a cms joomla solution (trying to learn more joomla atm)
My steps are
What do you guys find works for you?
What do you push new clients towards, cms vs html?
Do you start low and add on extras?
Been a few year since my last project so any advice would be welcome
