Project SpecificsWhat does success look like? How will you know you are happy with the eBook template?*What are you worried about? What do you imagine going wrong?*Is there anything about your organization that might make this project easier or harder in any specific ways?This could be your lack of time to spend on the project, a strict and stringent accounting/payment system, the reputation of management to change their minds, etc.What is your budget range?Why Do I Need To Know This This will help us both save time and effort. I don't want to show you a $3,000.00 solution if all you have is $1,000.00 to spend. I also don't want to show you a $1,000.00 solution if you are looking for a more refined, customized and powerful $3,000.00 design with custom graphics elements, many page layouts, professional print ready design and more. A Note About My Business Ethics I am not going to present you with a $1,000.00 solution and try to charge $3,000.00 for it as I am in this for the long run and I get the majority of my clients from referrals. It would be dishonest, immoral and short sighted of me to overcharge for what I am delivering. I might make me a few extra bucks on this project, but I have to be able to live with myself and sleep at night and sooner or later, building a reputation for ripping people off would catch up and ruin myself and my business.What does the selection process look like on your end?
