Advise on Owning or Transferring Client Websites

Hello. I wanted to introduce myself as a new Wix web designer and ask about preferred practice for maintaining ownership or transferring client websites. It seems from a few threads I read that many designers like to build the website, then transfer to the client and setup a collaborator role for themselves. I’m leaning toward keeping the client sites under my own Wix account when appropriate, then bill the client monthly for my work and any subscription fees. Anyone see downsides to this approach? Thanks!

Hi, I try to retain ownership. I charge $600 per year to manage their website with basic SEO. I have about 50 of my 70 websites that way. I get them to pay me yearly though.

Most clients will ask to transfer their site to their account. You can offer website maintenance or any other services for monthly or annually fees.
