Not if you didn`t get what you bargained for. I think that 4K to 5K is alot of cash for an uncompleted web site, or for a web site that you can`t even move around as you wish.
I think that for that much they should give you more than just head-aches...
You are missing TJ`s point Edgar. TJ isn`t referring to a site that is uncompleted or unuseable. He is talking about a concept, an idea of a business that would provide a completed website, shopping cart, and in addition - coaching by a third party other than the web designer and shopping cart administrator. A go between who can provide the customer with one on one instruction on how to use their website, advise what they need to to do get their business started, and to share ideas with that person with regards to marketing, vendors, product display/description, licenses needed, etc. It would be the complete package and the web designer won`t have to lose time from concentrating on site building since all of the learning phase for the customer would be handled by someone else!
I think it is a great concept! And since I started completely from scratch not only with getting www.Boxerhaus.com started, but also as a new business owner who had never started a business before and found myself overwhelmed at times not knowing where to get certain resources or knowing all I needed to do or even what would be best to do!
I actually owe TJ a huge thank you in responding to a post I put up on the SUN forum months ago asking for help from someone with online retail experience who would be willing to mentor me. TJ was the only one who stepped forward and offered to "take me under his wing" so to speak and with that he shared more of his time and experience than I ever imagined anyone would for a stranger!!
The assistance TJ has given me personally has proven to be invaluable and I truly believe my store would not be where it is and my knowledge of an online store would not be at the level it is now had it not been for TJ`s help! So he gave me EXACTLY what he is proposing here on this thread - a business that provides the WHOLE package from a complete online store website to an advisor with regards to running an online store for one price.
Would I have paid $4,000 to $5,000 for this type of package??? Absolutely!!! I think it would be money well spent and certainly a worthy and affordable investment for a new business owner!
