I recently received a call from a prospective client who was in need of branding assistance and a website rebrand. During the follow up call, she explained that she had went with a web design company that was now holding her website hostage. Not only that, but the fee to get the site released was not going to be cheap.
I do not hold any design or website hostage. Why? In the most simplest terms, I believe in transparency and free will. I do not want to hold anything hostage and definitely not for a fee when my client has already paid me for the designs and set up. I believe it’s their right to go with another designer if they believe they are a better energetic fit. Also, I want my clients to become educated in the software applications in order to handle their own updates if they decide to do so even if I provide maintenance services.
So, when I heard what this lady was going through, it got me wondering if other transformational entrepreneurs were experiencing this exploitation. What I have found out is disturbing.
It happens every day. Why? There’s a few reasons. Designers want to keep their clients so they resort to questionable tactics and business owners can be too trusting and are not asking the right questions.
