Hi, I’m Keith keithdevon.com @keithdevon

Change your thinking • Trust us. Do your research. • Relationship of equals. • Good developers are in demand.

What we need to know • Is the project real? • Do I have the skills and time? • Are you going to be good to work with? • Do you have enough money?

1. Just enough detail

2. Spelling and grammar

3. Be polite

4. Flattery will get you everywhere

i have got a word press theme, looking for a developer to customise it for my website, please take a look at my current website t*****.co.uk looking for a responsive website ! pls call or email me with a quote and lead times

5. Don’t mention your ex

…I can’t stand the girl who is designing it as she is beyond frustrating, discourteous and frustrating to deal with.

6. Have a deadline

7. Show me the money!

1. Just enough detail 2. Spelling and grammar 3. Be polite 4. Use flattery 5. Don’t mention your ex 6. Have a deadline 7. Disclose your budget
