I had talked with a client over the past couple of days regarding a non-architectural project. He said that he received three estimates in total. One was from a Flash developer who wanted most of the work already done for him. The second was me – I was prepared to handle everything. And the third was from, in his own words a “high-end advertising service” that wanted to charge a fortune but would provide everything “on a silver platter.”
I told him that if he wanted to, “I could raise my prices and we could call it high-end as well.”
I just hope my joke went over well… Sometimes I don’t know when to shut up.
P.S. – I ended up getting the job.
