"The last big job I quoted for was a pretty serious solution, they ended up getting the job done by a web developer in India. They did the job for only a few thousand more than what it would have cost for the FileMaker licences ALONE... no way could I get even remotely close to this quote."
They also got what they paid for. The last web coding job I had to "fix" that came from a web developer out of India required a complete rewrite. The client originally spent $1500, and ended up spending 4x that to get it written correctly.
Cheap labor is a cheap excuse to point the finger. Check back with that client in three years to see how much they *actually* spent, when all was said and done.
Ditto, what Mike said. I also get paid to FIX what was done cheaply (FM and/or Web).
