Don’t settle for cheap work

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

I was scanning Craigslist looking for some work and saw someone looking for a web developer at $7 an hour. You gotta be kidding me. I can make more than that working at Home Depot.

If you are a developer or designer, never settle for less than what you think you deserve. If you are good, then charge it.

Someone else made a comment about this on Craigslist – here was his/her comment:

“There have been many postings lately asking for designers/coders/who knows what and offering practically minimum wage. That is despicable. I have personally found that 30 dollars is the bare minimum (I was charging that while still in school).

And anyone who is thinking of taking a job at anything less than 30 an hour (unless you have no experience and it is a very good internship), please reconsider, it hurts and cheapens our profession.”

How we charge for websites

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

We require 50% up front and 50% when the site is complete. That way, you secure our time so we can begin working on the site.

For example, let’s say I have 2 customers, A and B. Customer A is willing to pay 50% up front but Customer B does not. Whose site do you think I’m going to work on first?

Let’s say I spend 2 weeks working on a design for Customer B who did not pay a deposit. Customer B decides to leave and let a competitor work on their website. I just spent 2 weeks, not getting paid, not working on another site and not out looking for more work.

I am interested in how other designers and developers out there charge for their websites/projects. Feel free to leave a comment.

Web design by Industry

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

Every now and then I will get a call from someone asking if I do “_________” websites. Sometimes it’s dating, sports, or photography. Usually I say yes, because although I have not created a website for every single industry out there known to man, I do have the ability to learn about that specific industry and create something relevant and professional.

So, with that said, here are some other industry specific websites that I can develop and design:
Architecture Websites
Photography Websites
Restaurant Websites
Educational Websites
Entertainment Websites
Insurance Agent Websites
Non Profit Websites
Real Estate Websites
Religious or Christian Websites
Technology Websites
Travel and Vacation Websites

Local web designer/programmer for hire

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

Why hire local?

1. They probably speak English.
2. You are supporting your local businesses and economy.
3. You are dealing with someone who understands what your clients are looking for and expect.
4. Less problems with communication barriers because time zones are the same and you can meet in person.
5. You can ask around and find out about a company’s reputation and references.
6. You pay for what you get.
7. Buy cheap you pay twice.
My 2 cents.
