    I have some nice ideas for the design of a site.

    Pretty simple 2 page site (opt-in page and sales page) I just need some good graphic designs. On the level of those acai landing pages you see.

    So the guy will probably need nice photoshop skills and able create a site too.

    I'm on a tight budget so how much should I pay the guy?

    Thanks

    They don't cost a lot in China. All you need to correct them on are the multiple spelling mistakes they can make in spelling "acai berry"

    from $10 up to $3000 depends on quality and complexity.
    in your case i expect ~ $100 - $200

    Are you trying to make fun of Chinese people? Dude, the guys I'm hiring are from freelance sites. Plus you can't even type a proper sentence so I wouldn't be talking if I was you.

    I would say $200-300 is a fair price for a decent site. You could get it done for about 100 bucks at DP or top end $3000 if you want it to be amazing and professional

    If you want a really nice site made for you, you could save up your money for a couple months. Or go on Freelancer, put up how much you can afford and see who bids. If you like their work, then hire them. Hope this helps.

    1-9 for your Keyword goodluck
    from what you are talking I would say 50 to 75. basically you need a landing page, and then an optin page, which can be the same design.

    I just paid $37 for a nice design for an ebook site.

    Can anyone give me some good freelance sites to find people for this project?

    Skills needed are web and graphic design.

    Thanks

    Why not post a job on freelancer, and see what kind of bids, and responses you get.

    This isn't a very big job, should be able to be done fairly cheap and fast... Make SURE you don't pay up front though, and use common sense when picking your designer. If it sounds to good to be true, IT IS, and you will just end up waiting weeks for a site that can be built in hours...

    Good luck :)

    Ermmmm..Are you thick? I'm based out of Hong Kong, I have an OFFICE up in Shenzhen WITH people in it. Even local Hong Kong residents are struggling when communicating so unless you're skilled in Canto or Mandarin there will be a learning curve in explaining certain things when you need things done.

    I'll refuse to comment on your "I wouldn't talk if I was you since you can't construct a 'proper' sentence" (when in fact you understood it quite clearly) and make this thread into a "flame war" as the next thing you're bringing up is who's dad the "stronger".

    Fact is that man power cost 1/3-1/2 of what it costs in Hong Kong (a fresh graduate costs around 1000-1200 USD/mo). Another fact is that you can't "throw" out products that are English-based without them being audited by a third party.

    And how much experience do you have in the Asian market? Give me a clue.

    Oh and I got one of your 'bargain'-shops too. Guess what...I've been to those wholesale markets up in Guangzhou and I'll guarantee you that the minimum wage isn't discussed nor does it exist, so yes - There's cheap labor. Is that offensive to say?? You could say the same about Indians. Ask yourself; why does a major company (e.g. Nike) outsource to China? Is it because they can produce Air Force 1s @ 35 USD a piece? D'oh.

    What you're looking at can be easily produced within a price range of $100-150.

    If you're still looking to get this done, hit me up and I can get you some good prices with good work.

    Man, I wasn't trying to start a flame war with you. Plus I wasn't talking about hiring Chinese people. Or having anything to do with China. I live in Australia. And my target audience are mainly from America.

    Just that what you said sounded a bit offensive to me at first. Now I get you were trying to say. So I'll will apologize for being an ass to you.

    Apology accepted. It may have come off a bit on edge, but didn't feel to elaborate on it. A good place to hire people is the Philis --- Good English speakers, average-good productivity and accept a relatively low wage in comparison to the rest of the world :) ...I'm dumb for not thinking about this before

    Should I just outsource the graphic design? That's the most important part of my site and it only has a few pages which I can put together myself.

    I need a nice logo.

    Thanks
