I just want to point out something to the job posters and those of you looking for freelance work.
Proposing a budget of $300 for a site redesign that handles video etc, is insulting. Even for those of you who are starting out, I would encourage you to never respond to these posts. These people either have no money or no understanding of what goes into working with WordPress (and making websites in general).
Posts like this are the problem:
Always ask for advice if you aren’t sure you getting paid enough to do what you are doing. Also set an hourly rate, stick to it and then tell prospective clients with budgets how many hours that will get them.
This job would only give me 5 hours to work on a site redesign…the quality of that redesign will reflect the time spent on it.
Anyway, good luck to all of you and I hope more people speak up on this issue. Do not let yourself be taken advantage of.
