Yes, I'm going to take this approach in the future. It makes sense.
Well, the work is pretty much finished (I've finally blown through the budget they had set aside for the e-commerce side of things). I knew this was coming up soon so was a nice bloke and wrote a load of scripts for the server to look after itself, do daily checks for load problems and sort it if so, and a bunch of other stuff the last guy didn't do like make sure the server/database sets itself up again if it has to be rebooted.
There's some talk of work being thrown my way regarding the promotions/sales aspect of it, with a nice (20%) commission on any sales. Which I suspect they will need, because the site doesn't even show up in google yet if you google the website name. I'm pretty good with SEO as well, and they know this.
First "proper" tech job I've had, and I fell into it by accident. Perfect work for me, think I might look into doing this more.
