    Re: Setting up your own web site

    One of my thoughts re setting this web site up is, ill be cheaper then my ‘competitors’

    Now when the web site is ready I plan to send 200/300 letters out at my target audience

    Apart from saying I’m the bees knees should I give some of my ‘pricing away’ or let them contact me first ?

    My view is put some of my cost in the covering letter, I've had a differing view on this.

    How many products do you buy that are the cheapest and the best?
    My business advisor made his money selling plastic baking trays that were cheaper to produce than the traditional metal ones. He charged more, and sold on the grounds that they did the job better. The opposition gave him a hard time lowering their prices but he stuck with his.

    I would follow up a web search on 'marketing whitepapers'. Many preach establishing yourself as an authority figure.

    The tricky thing is to know what "search term" your prospective clients are likely to use
