Is there anything I can do to reduce costs?

I'd like to hear your ideas for reducing costs, so I know if there's something I can do at my end to make the process smoother/less time consuming. Also, I can look at whether time/money would be better spent on bumping up another feature/area of the site.

In terms of cost reduction there are several measures that can be taken:

  1. Modifying an existing design template is much less time consuming than creating a new design from scratch. One caveat here though is to work with high quality templates. Monstertmeplates.com is not one of them.
  2. Drupal is relatively easy to add content to. The more that you, the client, do - the less I do and consequently my hours can be reduced. Don't plan on adding Word documents. This is one of the pinnacles of web editing expertise. While it can be done, it is not for the faint of heart. There are some simple steps to take to move content from one format to another. I'll show you.
  3. Another reduction would be providing me with stock images for the design. Hunting for images is my least favorite part of the work. Let me turn them into web usable images though.
