Your concept looks like a good idea.. A few good cost effective suggestions:
Get a paid intern from a college (web designer)
Join a local BNI group and use the internal web developer
Join a local meetup group of business owners, see who they use..
I am looking share the pain (and love) of launching a new business. Has anyone out there started there own IT staffing (either Fulltime or Contract) firm? I am looking to bounce some questions off people in the field. Have you signed up for the boards DICE, Monster, etc ? How is the market treating you? Thanks,
From my experience the best way to keep and retain clients is a mix of a few things.
-First is to let them know that you really care about your services and that they are happy with them.
-Get to know them/family on a personal level (hobbies/ favorite foods/sports/ etc). That way when you speak with them you can have done a "little research" on the topic.
-Give a small discount after a certain billing amount
-Do discount prepaid hourly plans
These are just a few things. I hope it helps and good luck
