What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I probably have one of the most uncomplicated pricing systems ever. Normally i charge a flat rate unless the client prefers I bill them in hours and I charge $35.00 per hour.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I do online training on occasion. I'm not real adept with all of the Social Medias..but i can be if I have to. I'm a quick study
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've been drawing since I was a kid and while my degree is in Fine Arts, Graphics helps pay the bills. I could be a "starving artist" but not after I had my son.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Illustration, business cards, logo design, ad design, brochures, web design, flier...and whatever else they want within my realm.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Ask to see some previous work relative to what you are requesting or at least give them the opportunity to send you a sample. There are projects that i have completed that were "first timers" for me but they worked out well because i offered a sample.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
To all of the "all you gotta do..." folks, that it's not always as easy as what you have in your mind and explaining yourself clearly is a necessity.
