Section 1: Freelance Lessons
This is the meat and potatoes of the members area! We have over 100 lessons on the subject of Freelance Web Design! Some subjects include:
How to price your services. You need to know two key things when deciding how much to price your services.... what your competition is charging, and what your client is willing to pay. Pricing too low can hurt your sales just as much as pricing too high. Clients want the best designer for their web site... and that means paying the right price for quality work..
What questions to ask before accepting a job. When you start to get too many clients (and you will) you need to know which ones to accept and which ones to decline. But how do you decide? We'll show you the five essential questions you should ask before accepting any job!
Should you charge by the hour or by the project? We look at both sides and show you the pros and cons of each.
How to deal with those tough clients. Not everyone is easy to work with. Some clients will be very pushy and demanding... others seem impossible to please. We'll show you how to stand up for yourself while still keeping your client happy!

The Marketing section is where you will learn how to market your services. It can also be useful to learn so that you may provide additional marketing services to your clients. Some of the topics you will learn include:
Pay Per Click Search Engines - Pay per click search engines are a highly effective way of attracting cheap, targeted traffic to you and your clients web sites. Knowing all the tricks that allow you to use this advertising medium effectively gives you a edge on your competition. It also gives you another service to offer you clients...
Search Engine Optimization - The objective of search engine optimization is to increase web visitor counts by ranking very high in the results of searches using the most appropriate keywords describing the content of your site. Using cheap tricks and gimmicks isn't the way to get your site ranked high anymore. In fact, using those tactics is a recipe to getting your site banned. We'll show you the correct way to optimize you and your clients sites!

Client Problems - We all run into problems with clients... and when you're a freelance working by your self, you can sometimes feel like you have nobody to turn to for advice. Chances are if you post your problem on the board, there will be someone else who has been in the same situation. The boards are a great place to go for advice and support!
Pricing Issues - Not sure what you should price a project? Just post the project details to the message board and members will help you figure out how much you should charge. You can also find web designers, graphic designers, and programmers that you can outsource projects to on the message boards!
