Advice on Pricing and Approaching Agencies


#1
Hi Guys,

I started freelancing about two years ago offering web design and hosting etc.

I am not much of a designer as my portfolio will show you.

I have recently made the decision that I would prefer to focus on my coding ability rather than building complete websites.

So I have been trying to break into PSD conversion.

I have bid on a few jobs on Elance and PeoplePerHour and managed to get myself 3 regular clients from this route. The problem with freelancing websites is you end up working for peanuts.

So I want to advertise my services to agencies and other freelancers directly but I am unsure about what I should be charging and exactly how to approach agencies.

Any advice about breaking into this market would be greatly appreciated.

Do any of you guys use a PSD conversion service if so what kind of price is reasonable.

Sorry for being a bit vague I just want to make sure I do the groundwork correctly.

Thanks byronc

I just want to make sure I have everything in order before I start contacting agencies directly.

A lot of the stuff I have done through PeoplePerHour has been about £15 to £20 a page.
