    You definitely have some awesome ideas James — the Mailchimp thing, solid gold. Now the question is, as a designer, do you charge for something like a Mailchimp email template as an ala carte item? Or roll it into the cost of doing stuff like a logo/website/general branding, etc.?

    Also, Copyrighting is huge, and could make you some serious money. Especially to the small business who doesn’t have the time or manpower to run a blog themselves. I wonder how one would charge for that? By the hour? Man you have my head spinning with ideas now, great stuff!

    Thanks Chris! I see so many people fighting for the designer and developer beachfronts when there are better opportunities elsewhere. It doesn’t mean that a person should explore those options but that they are not the only options.

    I personally charge for setting up MailChimp template and the account. My base packages start at $750 for simple setup of a newsletter template and activating the account. But you can also add it into your overall package – in fact I prefer to offer packages that integrate several components over one ala carte item.

    Copywriting is something I’ve been exploring more because there is such a HUGE need and because I love to write. I am researching the different ways people charge for these types of services. Once I have a firm grasp, I will report back with a blog post.

    Glad that your head is spinning! Love making people consider the options. :)

      Nice! Copywriting is huge. I mean, as important as blogging is to a startup or website in general, you could argue it’s more important than anything else, especially as it relates to SEO. I’ve already done some copywriting (on a smaller scale) for one or two of my smaller clients, just to get them started, and they never keep it going which is a shame.

      To have someone there full time, to manage their content to a degree, could be a real cash cow.

      Great stuff! A lot to think about for sure
