Freelance Programming and Website Design

By: Satya

A freelancer or freelance worker is a person who pursues a profession without a long-term commitment to any one employer. The term "freelance" was first coined by Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) in his well-known historical romance Ivanhoe to describe a "medieval mercenary warrior" (or "free-lance"). A freelance worker is one who takes on short-term assignments for a set fee or rate.

Just as there are freelance writers or freelance journalists, there are Freelance Programmers for meeting your website design needs, be they for programming in any internet language, graphic design to make gifs and jpegs etc, write articles for you or data entry and data processing, website promotion and link building etc. jobs.

Freelance web designers ( freelance writing ) by experienced freelance website designers is a fast and cost-effective method for customised web design (website design), graphic design and website promotion. Freelancers provide website design services at a fraction of the cost for the contract jobs.

Most freelancers do the work on a part-time basis, they do not demand rates as a full-time worker would. The payment is generally based on the number of hours the job takes in addition to the skills required to undertake the work.

It is a good policy to hire experienced freelance web site design workers as they save you money and provide you good quality work provided they have the necessary experience.
However, there are some risks involved and these can be avoided.

The biggest problem is that the developer does not finish the project or that he finishes the project but the results are not what you wanted or anticipated. This is case when you hire someone that either freelancer worker may not have the right combination of skills and experience, or he may have too many clients and can't manage the work load. Either way the quality of work done for you is not going to be satisfactory. The two most important aspects of minimizing risk are:
1) Clear and detailed requirements. Clear, concise, well thought out requirements are essential for a successful project.
2) An experienced developer. Go through his past record of services rendered.

There are a lot of websites that deal with freelancers. A good example to see is to visit www.getafreelancer.com. However, whichever website you choose, one way of avoiding disappointment is to check background of the freelancer, what sort of rating have his past job providers given him.
