General discussion

I'd like your opinion on a marketing question.

First, I am addressing this question to a WEB DESIGN forum most of whose members have already mastered HTML, FTP operations, and all the other complexities of website creation so you are NOT potential customers of my company's ASP based website creation service (which is NOT listed in this post)aimed at eliminating all that complexity for non-programmers. My question is: Do you have customers asking for pages on their sites that that "they" can change without programming knowledge? My reason is to see if portions of our suite of tools might be marketed to developrs like you who could continue to create conventional custom sites and just link to our service for the few pages the customer needed an easy to use content management system for. If so, what would an acceptable price be per page for us to provide that service (password accessible by your customer via Internet Explorer using our ASP based software to make changes and republish those pages which would be hosted on our servers -not your site- which would still be hosted wherever it is now) Since this is probably not of general interest feel free to reply directly to me: nick@nickjohnson.info Thanks for your input.

Hi. This is just an opinion. The pricing you set depends on the kind of customers you want. I have a friend whose father used to say "SELL TO MASSES AND LIVE WITH THE CLASSES". If you sell it at a cheap price, you?ll have more customers, but it depends on the production cost. Your idea is great, but most customers are afraid about technology and won?t like putting their hands on their website. Don?t forget the law of the offer and demand. Are you really the only one in the market? How many are there and, is your product better than other products?... Also, be sure to know exactly where to announce and who to partner with.
Consider all this kind of stuff, and, after you set the pricing, contact me (I won?t have more than 2 or 3 customers for your product, but I?ll have something).

I hope this helps, and if not feel free to contact me.

One last recommendation: We, buyers, want to buy products with a large list of features. Do not limit your product to an UPDATER, look for all the great features it has cause you never know what?s the exact feature your customer is looking for.

Thank you for your genuine response to my question and I appreciate your input. I see the respondent following yours somehow felt my post was SPAM in spite of the fact that I did not include the name of my company and only my own email address NOT at my company's domain. How could that be SPAM? I have reported that member's SPAM comment as "offensive" since it clearly has stopped anyone else from trying to help me as you did - probably from even reading my post so they could see for themselves it couldn't be SPAM. Thank you again.

Re:SPAM!

In reply to: SPAM!

Prior to your post calling mine SPAM I had one genuine respondednt (who I very much appreciate for his genuine response to my question). But minutes later you posted "SPAM" which has stopped any further response to my question. Did you READ my post? I did not include the name of my company and only my own email address NOT at my company's domain. How could that be SPAM? On top of that I am asking a hypothetical question about a service we don't even offer to see if there would be interest in it! How could that be SPAM? I have reported your comment of "SPAM" to the moderator as "offensive" since it clearly has stopped anyone else from trying to help - probably from even reading my post so they could see for themselves it couldn't be SPAM. If I am guilty of spam you should have reported me to the moderator so he can delete my post but I am hoping he will delete yours.

Dear Mr. Johnson.

This isn't my forum, but I can answer a couple of your questions. Dale is not a Moderator, but to me, your post (taken alone) seems suspiciously like Spam. Your second post (the one to which I'm replying) clarifies the matter to the point that f it were my forum, I'd leave it be -- but I wouldn't remove Dale's post either. It's possible that the active Moderator here, or a higher-up, may disagree and take further action, but for now I'm leaving both be.
