    As Im new here, nobody knows me or what I do, so a bit of a quick rundown.
    I market and sell a website template. I also have a design and setup service for this template for those customers who either cant do it themselves, or dont want to.

    There are 2 designers who work for me, doing setups of the template, and as business is increasing, Im looking for another. I charge a percentage of the fee (15%), and the basic setup cost is $500. (so I get 75, you get 425). That is the basic package, prices increase with additional work such as adding slideshows, dropdown nav, flash etc. This can go up to perhaps 1500.

    A basics setup entails doing a header, setting up colors fonts and the look and feel of the homepage using the template and supplied stylesheets. Then adding their existing content to the homepage, plus a few other bits and pieces such as adding their links, rss, contact form etc. Most of my customers have websites already, so are upgrading the site, rather than starting a new one, BTW.

    An average setup could be done in a couple of days (depending on how timely the customers responses are, and how picky they are). I cant guarantee work, but would expect to be able to give you one or 2 jobs per week. So you could earn maybe 1K per week, as the other designers do.

    So the person Im looking for would be.......
    *honest, and cares about the customer. If you're only in it for the money, don't bother contacting me.
    *A wizz with html and css. As you will be using a template for the start of each design, you would need to become familiar with the template and stylesheets.
    *A good eye for design, colors and layout
    *Familiar and adept with a good graphics program, such as photoshop or Adobe Fireworks (which is my preferred program)
    *some knowledge of javascript and flash would be nice, but not entirely necessary

    I have been doing this for over 2 years now, so Im not new, or a fly by nighter. Im also unable to handle all the extra work I get asked to do, with consulting, template support, html and css coaching etc, so there could be more work in that line later, if things go well and you're interested.

    For anyone interested, please contact me. I can then give you the sales page URL of the template and design services, so you can see what it's about, and that Im genuine. We can then discuss things from there.

    Just one quick note on payments. You get paid directly from the customer, via paypal. 50% upfront, the rest on completion. The files are sent to them once they pay, and then you pay me my percentage. This arrangement works well......you dont have to be concerned that I might not pay you, or anything!
    Thanks. :)
