"This book is very useful for cultivating new clients. Once they understand the steps involved in establishing their web presence, the value of my consulting services is more obvious. They have a better understanding of what they can do themselves, and which services they want to outsource to professionals. We can then talk a common language and get the website they need to support their business much faster".
