Hello Michael. @michaelpingree
I did not read your thoughts yet but will. Off the top of my head here – Website design should be pretty much dead as a business, on it’s own, at this juncture.
There are simply too many other avenues for people to follow to need ONLY a web designer.
We’ve been in web development since 1992 and hear this ALL THE TIME > I did not get what I paid so-and-so for! THEN, they don’t want to pay us for re-doing all the damage so-and-so did with their design that did not take any SEO or social media options or marketing strategies into consideration.
The playing field changes everyday and developers worth their salt, keep up with the game. Web Consultants (web developers) can and do help people everyday to upgrade websites and blogs etc. to adjust their business model for online integrity. Usually by the time companies get to us, they have been burned many times over.
