I am developing a website for my client. The website is currently on a free (starter) website plan, because after I finish developing the website I will transfer it to the client, so he can purchase a CMS plan by himself (I don’t want to deal with the billing stuff)
I have 2 questions:
I wanted to use custom code when developing the website, but since I was on starter workspace plan I couldn’t do that, so I bought a monthly freelance workspace - is that the right way to do things?
The website is almost done, and the client wants to upload content to it (blogs, services), but I cannot invite him as an editor, because the website is currently on a free plan… What should I do?
a) Purchase a CMS plan for 1 month, so I can invite the client as an editor so he can upload the content and then transfer the website to his account, where he will buy a yearly CMS plan for his website.
b) Transfer the website to his account so he can edit the content (since he will be the owner) - but in this case he will have to invite me so I can make changes in the designer.
The problem with “b” approach is that I am planning to share this website on my workspace as a portfolio item, so I want it to be 100% done (with all the projects and blogs) and if I transfer the website to the client so he can add all of the content, I will not be able to do that (since it will be on his account)…
So my question is - what would be the best way to approach this when building websites for clients. I think that I should’ve just purchased a CMS plan for 1 month so I could use custom code and invite editors while the website is being developed and then once it is 100% done transfer it to the client’s account where he will purchase a yearly CMS plan. It kinda sucks if this is the best way, because then I have to buy monthly CMS plans for each client’s projects, so I can add custom code and invite them to edit content while the website is being developed.
Thank you in advance!
