‘s "10 No" advice to freelancers
this article was written by Samuel in freelance course: [email protected]
my first time free of occupation in college, I was eager to do any website that will say for "anything", took no account of their technical ability or may be involved in the time. It was great at first because someone told me to do a technical job. Unfortunately, I soon found that I was spending all my time at work, eating instant noodles, and not going out to enjoy my wonderful college life. Worse, these people often put my contact to tell other customers with similar requirements (for example, a woman has been considered in the online selling dog sweaters, intends to use the $100 budget for an e-commerce website, print 1000 copies of the user manual, and to ensure that her client in Google search for "dog", "sweater" and "love" when this website can search results ranked first).
well, anyway, it’s 4 years from now. My environment and my financial results have been fully allowed. I replied, "no!"". For these 10 questions, I almost always answer "no":
1) can you make a demo first, let’s compare and choose the right designer / R & D? No!
I was asked this question once, I was silly and naive. In the end, I didn’t get the money and wasted a lot of time. Don’t have not got the money when he began to work at this truth in any other industry application, web design should be different? If you compromise, the best case (though rare) is your customers know if necessary, can let you free work (Translation: normal or give you pay). Worst of all, they don’t pay you, but still use what you’ve created, and know you can’t fight for your rights. The most likely situation is that you won’t get anything, it’s just a waste of time.
2) can you give us a discount? No,
many companies don’t approve of web design as a service that is worth more than $20 an hour. Such a company should never be your client. I graduated from graduation a few years ago, have a "living" meaning high positioning, for which I would rather do a lot of work. Let me tell you, it’s not worth it, really. Remember, you may be helping the company by making a break, but on the other hand, you are hurting your future and your family’s future. Now, I will raise my hourly salary right away, which may eliminate many potential clients. This is really a simple math problem — if your salary doubled and your work is shrinking, so you still earn the same money, but when only spent half.
