In my “spare time” I have been designing a new website for myself and couldn’t remember what clients referred to their project requirements back in the 90′s . So I found a pretty cool reference guide – Netlingo to remind myself of the differences. Landing Pages, Interstitial, Jump Page, Microsite, Macrosite… they all kind of ran together in the terminology pamphlets back then. Now, after reading through them again, I can decipher the needs a little better for my clients. Happy Reading.
Recently while looking for full-time employment, I stumbled upon job requirements from several searches that wanted an “Office Assistant(with web design skills)” or some that basically wanted someone that could accept an entry level salary but have the skill set of a 10 year Photoshop master! It’s funny how so many employers now are wanting an individual with incredibly rounded skill sets to come on staff for so little pay.
Just found another one:
- Update Currents Websites/blogging
- SEO/SEM work
- Assistance in Order Fulfilling
- Work with AI and Photoshop to create files
- Work with AI and Publisher to create Print Materials
- Manage Websites and Email Accounts
- Basic Knowledge of Hosting Systems
- Sales Assistance ( the right individual can obtain a commission for new business)
So you need to be a blogger, a sales assistant, fulfill orders, file stuff, have SEO/SEM experience, manage websites and be a designer. I am surprised it doesn’t request a little PHP, and database knowledge too. Basically anything that has to do with internet (because we don’t know) we want you to do for around $32,500 a year or maybe we’ll do hourly and you can cover your own insurance, how’s that sound?
Here’s a good way to save money on buying razor blades. Found on Stumble. I think it’s around 15 bucks for 4 refill razors!
- Good find Daven, thx
As a part-time/full-time freelancer for over 18 years now, I’ve tried to keep industry pricing for services around the same hourly rate unless the client prefers a project based pricing structure. Recently, one of my clients(middle man) needed a revision for an email design that I produced for him that he in turn, would complete for his client. At what point do you draw a line for billing your services? I spoke with a few colleagues and went with their suggestions which were invoice your services at 30 minute intervals. Even though the service may have only taken 5 minutes at most. I’m not sure how other freelancers address such issues but in any case here is an article that offers tips to freelancers.
