The possibility of a good professional relationship is so unbelievably low in these situations that it is just not viable.

Somehow it has become acceptable for people to pitch a design project as ‘perfect for students’ or ‘will look good in your portfolio’.

I do sympathise with the budgets of some start-ups so I endeavour to help where I can.

Many don’t realise how easy it is to build their own website and just pointing them in the right direction is helpful. The resources we encounter in our day-to-day work are just not known to the mainstream.

Just by being helpful and sharing these resources you will find many people are just as likely to become an ambassador for you and your business as if you’d built the website yourself.

Then you can use the time you would have spent doing fruitless work to really push your marketing and get your name out there.
