I have got this client from freelancer.com where he gave an email to contact him. I contacted through the mail, he said he wants a restaurant site built for him, provided an example and said he wants one just like that but maybe a better looking one. I wanted to know some information about the site he wants to build, as like: 1. if the site would be an exact copy 2. what would be in the reservation page 3. how many approx monthly users he expects into his site.
But he never paid a heed to these info and asked me my budget. I told him my asking price. He then said he is based in USA and he will send the payment by emailing me the check. And said he will have his assistant send me all the contents I need.
Also, in the very first email he included that "You would be updating the site for me". I asked what he meant by that. He won't talk about any information.
My question is, how can I make him cooperate with me so that I understand what he wants and needs?
