I Sold a Website on Christmas Eve Day! THANK YOU, SANTA!

Last Update: December 28, 2018

THE START OF SOMETHING GREAT!

A client of mine came over to my home the day before Christmas to purchase the newly revised website that I designed for him. We both signed the Contract I drew up and went over the Purchase Agreement. Then, he wrote me a check for $250, with a Monthly Hosting fee of $50 to be paid on the 24th of each month hereafter! I guess I can say Christmas came a day early for me!



CHRISTMAS MIRACLES DO EXIST!

It just goes to show you that miracles do happen, especially when you have Faith and Believe! This is the last website I have transferred over from my old web center to here, redesigning all my previous sites at Wealthy Affiliate! Plus, in just 1 day, the traffic rose to 50 on it! The one I finished a few weeks ago already gets over 800 visitors a week! Many of their customers have come to them saying how much they love the new website. This has increased their exposure and has brought many more customers to their restaurant!


I've been designing for over 25 years now and have it down to a technique. I study each business I design for and actually learn their business so I know what to write. After gathering all the information, I meet with the owner, write the content, take the photos, do some extras like slide shows and photo galleries, and draw up the Contract and Purchase Agreement. Developing trust is key, too! I also design a logo for each.

For websites I design from scratch, I charge anywhere from $650 - $9500, depending on the extent of the site.


LET THE MIRACLES CONTINUE IN 2019!

I wish you all abundant miracles in your businesses and just know that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE WHEN YOU HAVE FAITH AND BELIEVE!

Christmas is a time for renewal and to enhance your belief that you were created for more---much more!

Erin :)!

That’s awesome Erin! I do have a question for you...did you rewrite the other sites or transfer everything from your old web center as is?

I’m looking at rewriting my wife’s pet sitting website and then transferring the domain name so I can manage the SEO and start writing articles also...of course it’ll be a few months before I do it, but just needed some info on the best way to do this.

I don’t like the format of the other site, that’s the biggest reason for the rewrite.

I wish you the best!

I changed a little bit of each, Bob. I transferred over the content and photos and rewrote some of it, adding relevant keywords and I'm still working on the SEO. I will be going to his business soon to take all new photos, as well. I spruced up the format considerably and updated the slideshow, too, along with designing a new Logo for the top header.

I wish you all the best and let me know how you do!

Erin :)!

I remember one of my websites was worth over $1300. You have to work on your website on regular basis. Now, I haven't been able to work on my websites due to being in the hospital or nursing home. People tells me that I should bring my laptop with to work on my websites. Every time I get a moment someone always comes in wanting to talk to you or take you some place to work on you. Here they would take you for therapy. Today, I have this I.V. in me. During this time, I have to eat, go to therapy, eat again. Then go to a doctor's appointment. My I.V. might even be done when I go to my doctor's appointment. This sounds like fun.

I hear you, Rog! I've sold ones for up to $9000 before. The redesigned ones I charge less for, since there is less work. But, mine start at $650 for ones that I start from scratch.

Sorry to hear about your recent circumstances. Please know that my prayers are with you. Wishing you all the best in everything in this upcoming the New Year! xo

I just started it and haven't done much yet. It's still kind of on the back burner. I hope to get to it soon, though!

Well done Erin, fantastic news! I couldn't agree with you more, have faith and believe in the impossible and keep working within reason! It's always nice when Santa Claus comes early and hopefully, you will both benefit, your client will make money and you will receive regular hosting payments.

Have a great day and may you have more days when Santa turns up!
