What are web companies looking for?

By mclass1 ·
I've been in the business for over a year now creating web sites and coldfusion apps. Any suggestions on how I should promote myself to other companies while not being a "guru". Is some knowledge and a ton of desire enough?
Thanks

I guess the questions I would have are:

1. What is your service?
2. What is your market?
3. What are their problems?
4. How can you solve them?

List the problems you're able to solve (creating a dynamic web site, creating fancy appletsthat load quickly, etc.) and then try to identify companies that might have those problems.

It'll be helpful if you have samples of your work to show them. Also, don't over or underprice yourself. Coming in too cheap makes them think you're an amateur. Coming in too expensive and they can't afford you. Find out what others in your line charge and then price competitively.

Good luck!

Knowledge and a ton of desire go a very long way. You may even set up a mock site for a company you are approaching. Do the home page and one additonal page. Contact them take them to your site and then give them a competitive price.

Good Luck...
