I have been freelanceing for nearly 2 years now on and off and I feel that I have quite a good grasp of the market place and how things work
and as the following image shows there is always going to be a direct coloration between scope(ie what the project requires) cost( how much your willing to spend ) and schedule( how long you have yo complete said project ) all of these have an effect on what the quality of the final product is going to be such as some body as king for a site to be built that mimics say google for £100 you may find somebody that is willing to do this for you for that price but its going to take a while to get that site its not going to be a rush job.
This brings me to my point all clients out there please don’t take this to much to heart but are you mad when you ask a professional to build you a fully working site with all bells and whistles included with in 2 days for £100.00 this is not really feasible you can get it done in that time scales yes but as its a rush job and your designers is more than likely going to have yo pull a all night to get it completed for you in that time scale .
Your going to get charged more I’m sorry but that is the way of things and it upsets me that people can not get this there is a direct connection between time and cost the saying time is money is not simply that a saying it is a truth that many people in the freelancing world live and work by.
Because that fact of the matter is that when i spend a whole weekend building your site that is a whole weekend that I have lost and I am not getting to spend with my friends or family . this brings me down to the roots of this at the end of the day would you work a full weekend on a project for some one else and expect to get paid a pitance I don’t think you would now would you .
