    Anyone do Web design work on the side?
    I've had an offer to do a couple sites and these would be first I've built for hire.
    Any suggestions from those who have done Web design or do on a regular basis to make the process go smoothly?

    Do not visit or include links to subserviantchicken.com.
  3. Make sure both parties know EXACTLY what is expected and what they want. Don't let them expand the scope of the original project too much at all.

    I did the USBWA Web site before they hired a professional to handle it. Make sure you get paid equal to the amount of work you put into it.

    Work up a contract.
    Also, include for how long you plan to be a "designer" ... often you'll get the page/site designed, and then, 4 months later a problem or a desired enhancement will pop up and the person will "expect" you to fix it or do it -- at no extra cost. Ha!

    Thanks for the tips.
    Most I already had in mind, but a reminder/reassurance isn't a bad thing.

    Find a Web site you like, copy the source code, tweak it to fit your customer's needs.

    Easy money.
