    Hey there everyone, I just wanted to post here so I can thank all of you who have helped me with starting up my own offline business!

    For other newbies out there, all I did to land this client was reply to nearly a dozen Kijiji / Craigslist ads looking for Web Design / SEO.
    I landed this client for $275 web design + logo creation (could be more I know).

    I'm just soo damn happy! THANKS AGAIN BHW!

    Thanks everyone! :D

    I know I screwed up one the pricing, but right now whats done is done. In the future, I plan on charging $550 for a 5-page site, and $850 for a 8-page site.

    And I'll be sure to keep you guys updated with my new clients and whatnot!

    Nope, I just browsed through the Graphic / web-design pages on Kijiji and Craigslist and replied to a few people looking for such work. In my opinion the pre-sale was already done, I just had to qualify myself as the guy they want/need.

    Out of curiosity, how many pages is the site and is the design mainly just a template with a few changes or do you have to actually spend some time on it?

    Good luck as well :)

    Thanks, and based around what my client told me she wanted for the site, I think I am just going to use a template I found online and edit it to her liking. It should take me 3 hours MAX. Its a simple 5-page site.
