What types of customers have you worked with?
I develop custom websites which I maintain. I also develop websites which the client, or their employee can maintain. Then, I train them so they have the tools, knowledge and confidence to keep the website going. It all depends on the needs and budget of the client.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I tell them that if they're looking for a web designer, they should put together an outline of the content and functionality they want. This outline will enable me and other web designers to create a proposal and cost estimate. I provide them with a lot of other advice too.
