I found his website very helpful for understanding how to sell yourself. ” People hire me because I help make their businesses more profitable.” He had a pricing formula:
Good information of what to research but not very helpful for those starting out. But he does offerer the chapter from his book on this topic for free. http://www.workformoneydesignforlove.com/images/wfmdfl-free-chapter.pdf. I was hoping for more information but did not really get it. Basically like everything else you will get better at pricing with experience and it is more an art than a science. I kept going from blog entry to blog entry. “What convicts can tell us about branding,” cool business cards and printing companies for business cards.
He suggests getting 50% deposit down before starting any work. Other quotes on his website ” Why use 50 words when you can get the idea across in eleven.” his blog topics include: Advertising, Art, Blogs, Books, Branding, Business, Graphics, Identity, Marketing, Packaging, Photography, Posters, Printing, Resources, Stationery, Typography, Web, Writing.
I’d better get back to my design proposal.
