I’ve to admit that i’m right now earning more installing and customizing themes for clients than building them. In fact, is a very profitable work, so please guys, stop loafing around here on forum and keep on working. :P

Are your clients local? If yes, then this is the reason(they can pay for sites). If i would do this with local clients i would not get even near to what i’m currently earning, since websites are really cheap in my country.

If your clients are not local, then your have good marketing skills :) you have them anyway.. :D

Well as a South African, this sickens me, obviously only a small amount is really going into development costs, while the rest is going into someone in governments back pocket. In a country with 40% unemployment rate, and someone begging for food and money on literally every street corner, and millions without a proper roof over their head, it saddens me that our government is literally stealing tax money and it’s not going to those who really need it. Our president recently upgraded his home for $27 million dollars, with things like an underground bunker with a lift up to his residence, bullet proof windows, and a helipad.. hopefully there will be an investigation into the expenditure for that website!

I think it’s time for revolution there. Please call CIA, they hold a reputation in bringing corrupt governments down. In return, a 25 years contract on gold or oil mine will be enough. :D
