    Has anyone else in the “custom small business web site” market noticed a recent drop in business, or is it just me? I used to be flooded with so much work that I couldn’t keep up, but now it’s really fallen off. (That’s how I ended up on a site that’s dedicated to web development leads.)

    If you have noticed a drop, what are you doing to response to it? (To answer my own question, I am trying to develop subscription-based products to supplement project-based work.)

    Some people say that the web design business is dead – check this article http://sixrevisions.com/project-management/sell-web-design-agency/ from sixrevisions, however in my opinion the industry is not dying but changing, and only those who change together with the trend will survive and flourish (an another good read http://www.collaborativegrowthnetwork.com/blog/bid/6198/The-Web-Design-Business-is-Dead). Now, since very often we compete with all the site building tools, we need to talk to clients differently, look for different kinds of clients and learn new things.

    I also noticed myself that business is slow during the winter, and many people look for web developers looking for refreshing their business site or creating a new business during spring and summer.
