This is just another freelancer, getacoder or elance website where poor quality and cheap prices.

For instance:

https://www.microlancer.com/explore/website-to-wordpress

Take a look, full wordpress sites from just $300.

And they are offering a lot for $300.

I cant compete with that, no where near.

Some themes take a month or two and the maximum you are allowed to charge is $975, it will not allow you to offer more.

Worst thing is, you have to do it within a maximum of 14 days.

I cant develop a high quality site from PSD to WordPress in 14 days, and even if I could I would not charge only $975.

Envato you are making professional developers look cheap!

Maybe you can’t – but there are authors who can. There are usernames where under ONE username are working 3 or 4 developers and they can finish successfully a project like that in 10 days….. And for them 975$ mean a lot of money if they are from the Far East, from countries where the exchange rate is high. Unfortunately I already faced this situation too on other freelancing websites :(

You are exactly correct, the vast majority of traffic Envato gets is from India ( from my quick surfing ) so yes I think you are absolutely correct.

Keep in mind a lot of mundane tasks like converting a working HTML website to WordPress are automated these days. Especially things like importing page content, media, meta tags and link re-writing. I have a converter here that I use when migrating new customers from static HTML (or really any other CMS) to WordPress. Type in the URL and bam it comes across to WP. Quite handy and only requires a few hours of tweaking import mistakes.

Excellent :)

hey do you guys have any referral banners ( kinda like http://themeforest.net/make_money/banners_and_logos ) for microlancer yet? I know there’s no referral system in place yet but my photoshop skillz are horrible and I think people will click on my links more if I had a decent banner.

Remember, Microlancer is for small jobs – those you could do in less than a day. No one should be designing a theme from scratch on Microlancer. You could do stuff like get a design for a single-page website, or email template – and then get that coded using a different service. But I really want to emphasise that huge jobs which you slave over for weeks aren’t really for Microlancer! :)

Also a few nuggets for everyone! Sales for web dev services have been high yield – showing people who charge at the upper end are more than able to compete. Also our top 2 traffic sources have been US and UK this past month.

Glad to hear you’ve had some sales, Sam!
