Web Designer link in footer of client's site
So I have strong opinions that you DON'T ever suggest to a client that you put your web designer company link in the footer area of your client's site. I'm currently talking to this potential business consultant/marketer partner who suggested we do that if we are going to start offering web design & I said NO WAY.
He thinks there's nothing wrong with it. I was always taught it's cheap & unprofessional. I'm not a graphic web designer or website coder, I'm a netrepreneur, so IMO, that's the client's real estate, not some free spot to promote one's biz.
What are your opinions?
