Hello,

I just want to share and get some best practice from you guys.

I have one customer who is new to wordpress. He bought my template and he says he can’t understand what i write in manual.

So I logged in to his wordpress site and import sample data, setup menu, categories and other setting to make his site look like my live preview.

Then he said that he still don’t understand how to make it ex. How to add image, upload, post etc.

And ask me to setup his content data for him.

What would you do? Do it? Because I start feeling like this is beyond scope of free support. Please share :)

I did some design work for a guy who setup Wordpress blogs. He was charging people, you should too. He charged $100 for a sites basic setup.

That’s definitely more than free support. I would offer him an hourly rate. It’s not your fault he doesn’t know anything about Wordpress

If you don’t see yourself as a Wordpress tutor, refer them to http://wordpress.tv/ or similar site.

Interestingly, i’m part-time writing an e-book for Tuts+ Marketplace on Wordpress from blogging to themeing.

One minute you’re installing Wordpress for them, pretty soon you’re wiping their ass for them
