    Just wanted to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the Podcast. First time listener but a lot of good nuggets in there.

    Have to agree with John, when a client wants you to set-up their email for them, that’s the bit I loathe the most.

    Keep up the good work.

    Hi there

    Really enjoyed this pod cast.

    I have heard few pod casts in the past on similar subjects, however this one was pretty unique and solid. It is the right kind of knowledgeable panellists that made that whole difference.

    Thanks once again and I’m really keen to see more of this stuff happening on the TWS.

    Best wishes

  4. Awesome tips for a new web design/ develop freelancer. Nice to hear stuff like this on the way to work!

    WOW! I totally missed this podcast, and I’m even in it!

    Yes, I have commercials on the radio, and I must say, the ads on the radio themselves don’t do too much, so if you’re just putting an ad on the radio to advertise your web design business: don’t. The only reason why my ad is still on the radio is because the added benefits. It’s a long story, but in short:
    The radio station has an auction. I give a credit note for a website on the auction site in exchange for advertising minutes. Listeners can bid on the auction-item, and the winner comes to me for the website.
    All I invest here is time to create the website. My 2 recent clients are off the auction. People with a lot of connections in the city I focus on. Win-win for me.

    Great podcast, full of really good information for some-one starting out as I am. Especially found the advice on making contacts within the community very helpful, as this is something I really have to work on.
    Can’t wait for another.
