Yes I´m cheaper than a normal agency, you are right. Much cheaper….....I did some pages for 600-700 Euros in the past (without CMS ). So 2-3k dollars is a raise ;). To be honest I´doing freelance since a year and I only released 2 projects for clients. First I need some clients to become famous.The business is very hard here. I try to become essential for the client and will gather the big money later. But actually I LOVE AD and I would like to work only for it like DS. No enyoing clients, no pressure…......see DS, he can go in pension and answer the users questions. Maybe 2-3 hours work each day. What you want more??! My normal hourly rate is between 16-20 Euros when I´m working for agencies.

oh my god

With your portfolio you are obviously capable and should at least double that and you will still get plenty of work. The more people that undercut at completely daft rates like that the more the average rate will be dragged down :(

MSFX – he probably didn’t look though the site carefully, it’s not a 2-3k site, no matter how cheap you are.
totally agree, glad you said that so I can keep my sanity :)
wow so I think I am terribly cheep, I charge for most of my freelance websites (in Poland) around 300$, for the free lance work form ActiveDen I take 50$/h
300$.....man this much money in poland. You can live 2-3 months from that in poland ;). I´m always seeing some documentation about the cigarette-smugglers from poland on TV. Very funny!!
eee ? 2-3 months for 300$ ? wish you lack… n/c

Was only a joke, but poland is cheaper than germany. 300$ is very less. How long do you need for a site. Your hourly rate on AD is 50$. These two price composition are so different, why??

Yes you are right. I will change this. But at the beginning of my freelance I can´t take so much like some others. I have to offer something, that they become my clients and this is my cheap price. One of the clients couldn´t pay 2-3k euros for a site, because they are a growing, young company. So I invest in this company with a site and they appreciate that by giving me new clients and a long relationship. I will change the prices after the next project.

Or did you already have a hourly rate of 50-70 euro at the beginning of freelance??

P.S. Thanks for the compliment that I´m capable for it. I know it to appreciate.
you are doing the right thing, even if you have to do projects for free at the start then that is a sort of investment and once you gain experience then you can sell your skills as you wish.

Excatly!! I do freelance not only for money, I do this to gain my skills and to stay in practise. I started freelance too, because I´m sitting at home and don´t know what I should develop.

It´s boring to develop apps only for practise. You need feedback and motivation. If somebody buy my files, this will push me forward and let me know that I´m doing right and should do further!!!!

I´m doing this stuff for about 2 1/2 years…..I learned eveything by myself. Most of you studied it or learned it in a agency…..so Im not so professionel…...but I would like to cancel my Business Studies and doing an education at powerflasher. All of you should know this agency. Founder of swfObject, FDT etc etc…...I´m living in Aachen and the headquarter is only 200 meters from my place. Otherwise I will apply for a communication and design studium here.

I always hear Iphone users complaining that they can´t see flash websites….....but dude, this is flash…..flash websites must be watched at a monitor, not at a mini display!!

So I will not develop flash websites for Iphone too. Im only looking forward to the new editor, finally finally a intelligent one!!!!!! I hate to develop in the current editor.

“Why take it so long….”What the f*. In the last days the AD team rocked the queue. I haven´t seen such a fast degradation since I´m here. My file was on 110th and after 2 days approved.

Is the new reviwer already employed??? ;)
