    If you are interested pleae email me at dru@bstweb.com

    I will not reply if you post to this thread so if you are interested please reply to the above email address.

    If you are a company do not apply, only free lance designers only.

    Plese email me the following:
    Example Links:
    Cost Per Hour or Project:
    Location:

    This has the potential to be a great opportunity for someone.

    Maybee!!

    He's a consultant and doesn't understand the needs of us to consult him , in the design forum we spend most of oul time in.

    Not only that it's silly to put a dead end post in and have no replies. Otherwise the thread drops down into oblivion when it could have the chance to have more people see it.

    Ummmmm,

    All you need to do is read the instrctions and follow them it's not that hard. 60 to 70 other designers have done it. If you have questions there is an email address to contact us at. So evidently your work is not that great, or you do not need the work. This project is about a $15000.00 project. We are so busy with regular clients so when we get new ones we have to employ designers out side our firm. So you can either whine about the fact that I can't hold your hand in this Comminty Disscussion or you can submit work. We are grown ups and do not have time to babysit in a Disscussion Forum.

    So if you would like to respond to the add here is the email again dru@bstweb.com

    Hope that clarifies things
    Dru

    Well it's in your best interest in general to follow up and respond in the forum. This is a happening forum and if you have put a thread in to advertise for your company(s). Isn't a little air time for your add a better thing then nothing and falling to the bottom of the heap.

    What would your company director and executives say if they new you said you didn't have time to follow up an add in the forum because you thought they were a bunch of kid's and didn't want to waste your time to keep the add going in the forum. After all it was only $15000 wasn't it. Wouldn't some consulting from a consultant help benefit the outcome of how many responces you get.

    Ohh and remember something. It's that bunch of kids that are making your world spin.

    So long consultant.

    - This means he's looking for the CHEAPEST guy he can find and usually, someone that is naive that they can manipulate better.


    Plese email me the following: Cost Per Hour or Project
    - RED FLAG, another shining example of someone trying to lock you into a set price THEN pile the entire universe on your plate - OR, finding the guy hes REALLY looking for... THE 13 year old KID THAT is willing to do it for nothing / $5.00 an hour.

    he also states this project is paid PER PROJECT - so why ask an hourly rate, wait I know... read the first sentence of the previous paragraph I wrote.


    evidently your work is not that great
    - this guy ALREADY has an attitude problem, I really feel sorry for the MULTITUDES that responded to his emails without reading about his award winning personality.


    We are grown ups and do not have time to babysit in a Disscussion Forum
    - Then why are you here? Better yet.. why did you respond?


    this project has been contracted out.
    - not a loss I'm sure. iether this is a forum practical joke or this guy is 12

    MM maybe because his attitude ??

    Plus like wiley said if this is pay per project then why even ask for what ur hourly rate is ??
    Maybe that has something to do with hiring the guy that will take the lesser $ per hour ??

    U dont come to a forum asking for people to send resumes for possible freelance jobs and then reply when ur asked something with an attitude it gets u no where and all respect for u goes right out the window.

    yeah, but when i'm making a quote i would say the project price is $x and that equals x hours work. Most companies want to know an hourly rate and a fixed contract price, so that they can see where the cash is going, rather than having a random figure.

    Never price by the hour, a set project price is the best. Then set fees after that for hosting, maintenance, or etc.

    At the moment i am working on some large sites and the client demands a full breakdown of costs, the most rational way of doing that is to say 'this part of the site' will take me x hours at $x an hour and break the whole site down to components. Each to his own

    Blatantly ignoring the danger of posting the obvious, but when it comes to deciding whether to charge by the hour or by the project, you can never really say that one is better than the other, or refuse to consider either as an option.

    I usually charge by the project, but that's just me. If I thought I could get convince people to let me bill per hour for figuring out some complex menuing system (which some would argue I should have known how to do in the first place) that'd be great, but my potential billing would be astronomical, pricing myself straight out of the market. So I take the path of least resistence and figure I'll take the hit if I run a little over in trying to do something a little 'above and beyond' in any given project.

    After all, it's all going in my port, so the investment isn't totally lost.

    I don't know the guy and I also feel he portrayed quite an attitude to a few people.. however, you can't look at things such as contact location or not knowing of the company..

    If he works for a consulting firm, it's quite possible he works from home as a satellite office (I worked for an ecommerce consulting firm.. 1 office, 3 satellite locations).. you would never know the other locations existed.. it was sales people and/or recruiters working from home in different states (one in GA, one in NC, and one in ME, we were in MA)..

    secondly.. the questions about "why did he say per hour if it's per project".. he never said it was $ per project. He said Hourly Rate OR Project Rate.

    I'll be the first to admit, his "retaliation" was 3 steps below professional, however, most of your own answers could be had from properly reading his initial post.
