I've found over time that the best way to acquire clients is not to give them the hard sale, but educate them on the potential their business has online and why to reach that potential it should be done by a professional.
A question I'm often posed with is "You can build a website for free! Is there even a point in web developers anymore?" and within reason that's true, if you discount the cost of hosting and Plugins etc. This is the same as almost any profession though - If you discount the ingredients you can make a meal for free, but it's nicer to be cooked for and looked after at a restaurant. If you have the materials you could build a house! But it may fall down. These are both perfect examples of why you may choose a Web designer and Developer over trying to do everything yourself. A developer looks after your online needs so you can relax and get on with your business. They ensure your website is built to the highest standard and to suit your needs and is not going to fall down at the first plugin conflict. The point in designers and developers is they look after you, while making your products and services look and feel great!
Cornwall has rich creative history, and that continues today, in fact in 2017 Which? University Student Survey voted Falmouth University the "Top Creative Scene" with 27% of students going on to start their own business - That's 4 times the national average.
Many of these business', like a lot of business' already though-out Cornwall produce great products and services and they should not be overlooked.
