    Hi!

    I'm about to launch two authority websites, one in the training/fitness niche and one in the food/recipes niche. I need some help with the layout for both the web sites from a webdesigner. The web site is going to be in Wordpress. I need most help in the beginning. This is for setting up the right "look and feel" and make the pages have a good readability. So basicly I need help with making some good templates for my tier 1, 2 and 3 web pages.

    I will provide all the banners, logo and articles myself btw.
    UPDATE: I can also provide a Wordpress theme myself. Its the "micronichewebsite" theme.

    I want a good serviceminded webdesigner who knows what he/her is doing. I would prefer the webdesigner to be selfdriven and have the ability to see if the website needs some work to increase the overall "reader-friendliness".


    So my questions is; Is it best to pay by the hour, or a fixed price?
    And how much is a reasonable price for quality?

    (PS: I will not save the money one of the most important things in a website. I believe in a reasonable pay which will increase lojality between my webdesigner and me. At the same time I won't pay more money just to pay more money, I want to have quality in return)


    So to all of you that have hired a web designer, what do you think?
    And to all of you web designers, what do you think?

    Thank you:)
    Jon

    PM sent.

    well I am sure the pricing is an relative aspect and it cannot be generalized.
    It actually depends how much the developer values his time and the quality he provides, it also depends on the nature of framework you looking for... it depends if you need a simple guy with simple skills or a guy with more advanced skill sets and knows inside out of what he is doing.

    Or whether you need guys who just tweak wordpress themes from marketplaces or the one who develops from scratch...

    I provide services from scratch with guarantee of my work against issues.

    For small projects I charge for an hour, whereas for the projects like the ones mentioned above I charge a fixed price based on the requirements and guarantee support along with it.

    sent you a PM.

    For those sorts of things, I think charging per hour is stupid. I don't care how many hours the person spends on it, all I care about is the end product so that's what I'll pay for.

    Well I guess it totally depends on designer and his/her experience towards the subject. Some may charge according per hour or some may charge for complete project.
